In Defense of Harry Reid

Geez, I can't believe I am doing this. The other day Harry Reid made a comment about white house tourists. He said the following:

"My staff tells me not to say this, but I'm going to say it anyway," said Reid in his remarks. "In the summer because of the heat and high humidity, you could literally smell the tourists coming into the Capitol. It may be descriptive but it's true."

Right wing pundits have been crying "foul" over this. We know that Harry Reid is a "nut." He is pure fodder for talk show radio, because everything that comes out of his mouth is in a word just plain "stupid." But this isn't it.

Reid was making a joke albeit a bad joke. The summer is hot and humid in DC during the time the public is visiting the White House. He was simply making a reference to people who sweat and who have been walking and after touring for a long while, sweat. Yes - it was a bad joke, but get over it.

It was nothing to write home about.
