Even though it makes our skin crawl to talk about it, there are already skittering sounds coming from the smoldering ruins of the Democratic party...because Harry Reid survived politically.
The Senate Majority leader, wriggling his antennae angrily, has announced that "Republicans must take their responsibility to solve the problems of ordinary Americans" instead of "simply saying No."
Although when ordinary Americans' problem is big government, "no" seems to be the answer they resoundingly voted for.
Busily nibbling a crumb of something he found on the floor, Reid grumbled that if Republicans are "unwilling to work with us, there's nothing we can do about that." Not exactly the most promising words to suggest that we'll be seeing a new spirit of cooperation in Washington.
Although it's possible Mr. Reid had more conciliatory remarks prepared for his statement...but unfortunately his news conference ended suddenly when someone turned on the kitchen light and he skittered back into the shadows.
