Perfect Slapdown of the Idiotic Harry Reid

This sums up the idiotic and borderline treasonous behavior of Harry Reid (D-Defeat) better than anything I've ever seen. It's worth reading the whole thing (language warning for the comments though), but here's a sample: (And IMAO--In My Arrogant Opinion--has to be just about the best-named blog on the Internet. I'm jealous!)


WASHINGTON (AP) - Top US congressional Democrats bluntly told President George W. Bush Wednesday that American farmers' spring planting "surge" policy was a failure.

Senate Majority leader Harry Reid and House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi challenged the president over this year's corn crop by sending him a letter, ahead of a White House meeting later on Wednesday.

"As many had forseen [sic], the springtime planting of seed corn has failed to produce the intended results," the two leaders wrote.

"The increase in seeds in the ground has yet to produce a single edible ear of corn so far this year.

"This corn is a dismal failure. It's time to pull it out."

"Far from fulfilling its promise of putting steaming, buttery ears on every table, this crazy planting scheme has done nothing so far but cost this country's farmers most of last year's profits, as well as causing them to spend all their time coddling these high-maintenance vegetables.

"Clearing the land, plowing, weeding, fertilizing, irrigating, spreading pesticides and herbicides - not to mention the over 1000 farmers that have lost their lives in unnecessary tractor deaths so far this year - when will the madness end?

"And what do we have to show for it? It's already mid-June and not a single plant has borne fruit. In fact, if these trends continue, it's safe to predict a nation-wide corn famine that will bring this country to its knees."

There might be some amount of similarity in the two examples if the corn were given to summoning additional pests to destroy it, if it waved away the nourishing rain clouds, or if it flattened the tires of the farmers tractors as they continued to work the fields to make the crop worthy of harvest.

As it is, the United States have been throwing money and blood at a problem which the most direct beneficiaries do not seem the least bit interested in ameliorating. Instead, Iraqis continue to shoot and blow themselves and each other up daily, they kill and maim United States military troops, and in every seeming way, show less than ambitious efforts to improve their own lot.

There are vast differences of political and religious thought in that area of the world, differences that the average American hasn't the time or the energy to understand. To make things worse, the 6 o'clock news isn't going to go out of their way to make the lack of knowledge any better in a meaningful way.

It's time that US troops were pulled out of all the hell-holes and cushy nonsense bases around the world, and brought home to maintain the safety and security of our own borders.
