More from everyone's favorite majority leader

So Harry Reid thinks Republicans "should stop crying" about the use of reconciliation to pass Obamacare. Really, Harry? What if we call it the nuclear option, can they cry about it then? Can they go so far as to call it "an unprecedented abuse of power"? Just wondering.

Speak for yourself, Harry

I saw this story linked on Drudge a little while ago:
Reid: 'Men, when they're out of work, tend to become abusive'

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) suggested Monday that domestic violence by men has increased due to U.S. joblessness.

Reid, speaking in the midst of a Senate debate over whether to pass a $15 billion package meant to spur job creation, appeared to argue that joblessness would lead to more domestic violence.

"I met with some people while I was home dealing with domestic abuse. It has gotten out of hand," Reid said on the Senate floor. "Why? Men don't have jobs."

Reid said that the effects of joblessness on domestic violence were especially pronounced among men, because, Reid said, women tend to be less abusive.

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

"Men, when they're out of work, tend to become abusive," the majority leader added. "Our domestic crisis shelters in Nevada are jammed.”

So what are you trying to tell us Harry? If you don't win reelection your going to start beating your wife? I can't wait for this guy to be gone from public life.
