Harry Reid -- Stone Thrower?

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- You know the old saying, "Don't throw stones if you live in a glass house." Why anyone would want to live in glass house is beyond me, but that's not the point. The Democrats, under the leadership of Harry Reid (D-NV) in the Senate, continue to blast Tom DeLay (R-TX), the House Majority Leader, for such frivolous issues as having family members on the payroll of his re-election campaign... which, by the way, is not against the law.

But if you intend to bash others about their practices of "implicit nepotism", then it would only seem fair that you should be above such practices yourself, right? I mean, didn't Jesus say something like, "Let him who is without sin cast the first stone?"

Well, you would think so, but not in the case of Harry Reid. It seems that Harry (old pal, old chum) has put not just a few friends and family members on the payroll. According to Carl Limbacher at NewsMax.com.... "In the last four years alone, firms with Reid family ties have collected more than $2 million in lobbying fees."

Ouch!! That's worse than what Tom DeLay is accused of.... but, why do we hear nothing about it from the Main Stream Media (MSM)? Is it perhaps because Harry Reid is a Democrat? Is it perhaps because the MSM has selective amnesia when it comes to Democrats? Well... YOU be the judge.

They're just mad because Tom Delay won the re-districting battle in Texas last year.

I think the Dems are just looking for any excuse to scream about something. They don't seem to have any ideas about what to do... so they just whine and belly-ache and point the finger.
Easiest job in the world to complain... and WE pay them to do it.... Sheesh!

Mr. Eye, why must you confuse your political opponents with the facts? BTW, I checked out Scrappleface. I haven't laughed like that in a while. Thanks for turning me onto it!

Not only has Reid done worse than they accuse DeLay of, several Democrats were on the same junket that was sponsored by the "foreign agent". But you forget the basic rules of the game according to MSM:
Democrats care for the poor and needy (dictators, lobbyists, etc).
Republicans are always looking for tax cuts for the rich.
Democrats are for choice. They are pro-marriage (between any two consenting entities)
Republicans (some of them) are anti-homosexual and anti-abortion.
and so it goes.
