Quick! Pass a jobs bill before I hurt someone!

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid commented, not atypically, “”Men, when they’re out of work, tend to become abusive. Our domestic crisis shelters in Nevada are jammed.”

Reid made the comment on the Senate Floor yesterday, presumably shilling for the jobs bill, which is now also an anti-spousal-abuse bill, apparently.

It never ceases to amaze us how many ways politicians come up with to justify legislation, but this is weirder than most.  Reid is one of the more devious politicians in the congress, to our way of thinking, but increasingly, he seems to have a screw loose somewhere.

Maybe it’s the fact that he’s got a rough re-election campaign coming up?

Nah.

Reid seems typical of polticians who, in the course of testing just how gullible the constituents are, oversteps.  He thought this might sell, so he said it.

Because he thought we were dumb enough to swallow it.

Wrong this time, anyway, Harry.
