Reid Admits To Playing Games

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Harry Reid (D-NV), the Senate Minority Leader, yesterday admitted that the Democrats were playing games when it came to the issue of Karl Rove. Reid's admission came in response to the statement by President Bush that "if someone committed a crime" by releasing the name of an undercover CIA operative, then that person will "no longer work in my administration."

The Liberal Mainstream Media immediately pounced on the statement by Bush, suggesting that he was "raising the bar" for a potential dismissal, and "lowering the bar" for ethics standards. White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan responded to these accusations by saying,"If the bar is raised on one end and lowered on the other end, the bar will be pretty crooked. So I hope you don't mean to suggest that anyone in this administration is crooked".

At a news conference later in the day, Senator Harry Reid said that it was apparent that President Bush's comments were an attempt to 'lengthen the field'. In an obvious reference to the game of football, Reid was suggesting that President Bush was making it more difficult for the Democrats to 'score a touchdown' on this issue. Clearly, Harry Reid and the Democrats view the entire situation as a game. This leads one to speculate: How long have the Democrats have been 'playing games' in Washington instead of doing the nation's business?

Karl Rove said today, "I've been kicked around so much, I'm beginning to feel like a football".

I don't know how to tackle this one!

Looks like you've covered all the bases.

Gotta "hand" it to you, you've scored big in pointing out that the Democrats game-plan is a basket-case...they've failed in their goal-tending raquet.

And the GOP cheerleaders must continue to shout out, "Push 'em back, push 'em back, wa-a-a-a-y back!"

Kajun,
"Touché" good buddy. I say we throw 'em over the "fence".

onlineanalyst,
Do those cheerleaders have costumes like the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders? Or do they dress up in elephant suits? ...Yuk!

Part of their problem is that they have their helmuts on backwards so they don't which way to run or how to work together as a team. I've even heard some screaming from the bench by a guy who seems to be part of the coaching staff (you know, what's his name!). What's that old sport's adage about what to do when in trouble on the football field? Drop ten and punt. That's all they have accomplished so far. To follow up on kajun's comments, the only way they are going to get any bases, is to go out into the field and steal a bag. As for being basket cases, the only sound you hear when the ball comes down is air (not swish). As far as goal tending is concerned, a shot to any corner or the five hole is a gimme. They are down three strikes and think they are due one more pitch. I'm sure that they think a jock strap is what the little guys who ride horses use. Finally, I think that the fat lady has already sung and left the building.

LebenFrei,
Drop ten and punt... good plan for the Dims. No runs, no hits, but lots of errors. Three strikes and they're out. They've been out for months but don't know it. Lot of screaming from the bench... lot of screaming from the bunch (the Dim bunch). Makes me sad, really. Sports used to be fun... where's that video tape replay when you need it???

Since they like playing games so much, I guess they're really into their Trivial Pursuit...

Camo,
I was always partial to the game of "LIFE", but since the Dems don't have one... I guess they get the "GO TO JAIL" card (Do not pass GO. Do not collect $200).

The Democrats certainly don't have a Monopoly on anything...

Jack,

Cut it out! I just got sucked into the Trivial Pursuit site. I gotta get something done today.

On topic: They've been fumbling on the first down, fouling it out of bounds, travelling for way too long without a foul called, hooked it into the lake, double faulted, hit below the belt, and overdosed on steroids. (And I'm not even a sports fan!) ;O)

Marge,
Wow! Sounds like we need to the ref in there and throw a yellow flag!

Er... that's "we need to GET the ref".
