Looney Liberal of the Week: Harry Reid

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- This week's award goes to Harry Reid. This idiot hijacked the U.S. Senate by calling on a rarely used procedure called Rule 21 to force the Senate into secret session. To make matters worse, Reid invoked the procedure without consulting the Republican leadership prior to doing so... a time-honored tradition. Reid then went on to accuse the Bush administration of misusing CIA intelligence to justify the war in Iraq, and even suggested that the indictment of "Scooter" Libby was proof of a White House cover-up.

Reid's actions were clearly recognized as a "stunt", even by the liberal-biased MSM. The fact that it was reported as such, suggests that even the media felt his action was "over-the-top".

Why did he do it? It should be patently obvious. The recent indictment of "Scooter" Libby had been grabbing all the headlines until President Bush announced Judge Samuel Alito as his nominee for Associate Justice to the U.S. Supreme Court, filling the vacancy being created by the resignation of Sandra Day O'Connor. At that point, Alito was all the talk, and "Scooter" was fading into the background. Reid's stunt was nothing more than a way to try and keep the media's focus on what the Democratic Party leadership is hoping to turn into a black-eye for the Bush administration.

But it appears that Reid's attempt has back-fired. Not only is Libby out of the news (probably until February), but the MSM failed to march to the beat of the DNC drum... no doubt because Reid's antics were so obviously a "stunt". What an idiot!

Great analysis right on target

Thanks. Glad you could stop by. Be sure and tell all your friends about View From Above... the only place on the web that features "The Looney Liberal of the Week". (Does that sound like a commercial, or what?)

Best regards,

Harry needs to hire Sheehan's PR flak if he expects to be in the news all of the time. Cindy could show Harry how to smile for the camera.

I was told to type the characters in the space, but I only see one character. He's wearing dark glasses and what appears to be a mustache. How do I type in this image?

He's a character alright... maybe a "shady" character at that. BTW, that photo was taken in New Orleans (in the good old days) before anyone know who Ray Nagin was.

Isn't it fun to watch these guys losing it? Like Rush says, they're funniest when they're out of power! I'm just tickled it's not working! By the way, Hawkeye, did you get that link I posted to the Jay Rockyfeller memo? ;o)

At 11/05/2005 9:24 PM , Blogger Hawkeye® said...

You got that right.

Actually I missed the link to Rockyfeller... darn! I'll go look for it.

OK... I got it! Thanks for the lead. Unbelievable! Those jerks have absolutely no shame when it comes to planning slime attacks, eh? Sheesh!

Best regards,

Mr. Eye®:
If you're going to feature "The Looney Liberal of the Week", shouldn't you oughta actually feature one every week?

Since mid-September, this is only the third installment.
(I checked...)

I had more, but... 1) the dog ate one, 2) I had a flat tire on the way to the internet once, 3) the ScrappleFace posting gremlin stole one of them, 4) I got writer's cramp, 5) then I got writer's block, 6) I forgot to post one, 7) there was no LL's one week, 8) I lost a week when I set back the clock the other day.

It's TRUE! Honest. Would I lie to you....?

Huh. I almost bought it til #7. There's ALWAYS a LL of the Week. I think maybe Mr. Eye has just been busy. Or perhaps Sandy Burglar got them!

Hawkeye: If you actually were to post ALL the "looney libs" after a looney stunt, you would have to change this feature to, "Looney Lib of the Half-hour!"

BTW, I just even if Prince Charles is British, he can still be a "looney lib". When I heard about his distane (sp) for America's intolerance of Muslims, I couldn't help thinking about his son wearing the nazi armband just a few months ago.

That and his moral values of finally marring his "mistress" of a quarter century! I always wondered why John Lennon, with millions of dollars, who could have any woman he wanted, would choose Yoko Ono. I wondered the same for Prince Chuck. Must be something these rich guys are drinking?

At 11/06/2005 10:39 AM , Blogger RAM said...

That should say, "I GUESS even if Prince Charles----"

Looked fine when I ("Evelyn Wood") proof read it!

Okay, RAM, maybe John Lennon could've had any gal he wanted, but, have you looked at Prince Charles lately? You'd need a big cork (for his arrogant big mouth) and a couple of pillowcases (one to put over his head and one extra for putting on one's own head in case his fell off!) I couldn't help thinking of that old addadge; 'You can't make a silk purse from a sow's ear' when I saw Camilla in that crown last week!

I betcha a good Photoshop-er could take that photo of Dinggy Harry(He is a ring-a-ding) and one of Cindy Shreekhan and make a really cute "Separated-at-birth" pictures.Could they be related?

Harry Reid,
I just erased a paragraph of anti Reid rant. You good people don't need to hear that type of language.
Good job Hawkeye, as always!
