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."
