Updated. Saturday morning.
From the credit where credit is due department.
Last week I complained that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid didn't sound angry enough about General Pretaeus' plan to de-surge in Iraq. Maybe Harry can't give 'em hell, but he sure knows how to give 'em the needle.
Reid says the Democrats aren't going to wait around any longer for Republicans' to come to their senses on the war. Via Atrios:
When asked why Democrats won't soften the deadline, the majority leader said he doesn't have confidence Republicans are willing to challenge Bush on the war.
"I think they've decided definitely they want this to be the Senate Republicans' war, not just Bush's. They're jealous," he said with a smile.
You want a donkey's attention, you bring a fucking pole down between his ears update: You know what, I don't care if Harry Reid's witty or if he learns how to untemper his language by one Sunday School Teacher approved polite euphuism. He can start talking like Al fucking Swearengen for all I fucking care or continue to natter on nicely like like a clerk in a shoe store apologetically suggesting that a regular customer might like to try that lovely pump in a larger size. He can say whatever he wants however he is most comfortable saying it, if only more of what he says ends with "it's not getting to the floor."
The Left Coaster: Reid: Botching another opportunity.
