Sen. Harry Reid Needs a Long Vacation

The only thing that explains Sen. Harry Reid’s latest verbal gaffe is stress and exhaustion — he needs a long vacation. 

Standing on the floor of the Senate yesterday with notes, yes, with notes on the podium in front of him, the majority leader said,

I met with some people while I was home dealing with domestic abuse. It has gotten out of hand. . . . Why? Men don’t have jobs.

Women don’t have jobs either, but women aren’t abusive, most of the time.

Men, when they’re out of work, tend to become abusive. . . . Our domestic crisis shelters in Nevada are jammed.

The unemployed women of Nevada will be glad to know they are not abusers “most of the time.”

If Harry Reid loses his Senate seat in November, he will have to overcome the evidently irresistable temptation to commit domestic abuse.

Mrs. Reid should consider some type of proactive preparation, say, kung fu training.
