Oy. This looks like a trainwreck. Which means it will be so bad, but so interesting that you can't look away. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is probably target #1 on the conservatives' list for replacement this election season. The right-wing media (FOX "News", Rush Limbaugh, et al.) have been busy demonizing him for several years now, just like they did Tom Daschle.
Harry (like Tom) is not a demon. He's kind of milquetoasty, kind of wishy-washy. He's a nice guy Mormon, who doesn't like to ruffle feathers. And he's the #1 Democrat in Congress. My state of Nevada thus has the most powerful representative on the Hill. I'm not a huge fan, but I'd damned sure rather have the experienced Harry over newbie morons like Sue Lowden.
But you'd better bet that conservatives (the strange blend of Republicans and tea baggers) are pulling out all the stops to unseat him. And they're bringing out the big guns to Searchlight, Nevada, Harry's tiny desert home town. Sarah Palin! Saturday Night Live's batshit crazy Victoria Jackson! Samuel (not Joe) the (not) plumber! Heidi Harris! Heidi who? Oh, that local talk radio host who I got into arguments with back in the day. Wow, that dim bulb is heralded as some kind of right wing star? Wow. This video is sooooo lame, I had to share.
