When Harry Reid gets feisty, he gets really feisty. When he gets feisty and he reads his crystal ball into the future, well, it just sounds like the rant of a genius.
After sharing the unsubstantiated rumor which might have come from a Bain employee about the possibility that Romney might not have paid any taxes for ten years, Reid paints a picture of Romney's billionaires that isn't pretty.
"We feel comfortable in the Senate," he said. "Where the problem is, is this: Because of the Citizens United decision, Karl Rove and the Republicans are looking forward to a breakfast the day after the election. They are going to assemble 17 angry old white men for breakfast, some of them will slobber in their food, some will have scrambled eggs, some will have oatmeal, their teeth are gone. But these 17 angry old white men will say, 'Hey, we just bought America. Wasn't so bad. We still have a whole lot of money left.'"
You just cannot read that paragraph without thinking about Harry Reid's mild-mannered way of speaking, and when you read the words with his voice in mind, it just reads as comedy gold.
Let's hope they're eating bitters for breakfast the day after the election.
