Stick to the Granny Slots, Harry
We’re fascinated by this exchange from a press conference today, where Harry Reid, Senator from the Great State of Lost Wages, cashes out on Guantanamo:
REID: I’m saying that the United States Senate, Democrats and Republicans, do not want terrorists to be released in the United States. That’s very clear.
QUESTION: No one’s talking about releasing them. We’re talking about putting them in prison somewhere in the United States.
REID: Can’t put them in prison unless you release them.
QUESTION: Sir, are you going to clarify that a little bit? …
REID: I can’t make it any more clear than the statement I have given to you. We will never allow terrorists to be released in the United States.
For cowardice in the face of transparent bluffing — for folding ’em when he should be holding ’em — Harry wins our inaugural Kenny Rogers Award.
