CHARM OFFENSIVE

(Haha, bitchy, catty Harry Reid is my favorite Harry Reid! The more he talks, the more I adore him.)

“David Vitter is a, um … he just is not playing with a full deck. Something is wrong there,” Senator Harry Reid said, pointing to his head. (Bwahahahaha!)

Senator David Vitter responded: “Unfortunately, the deck I’m playing with in the Harry Reid Senate is quite full -– of jokers.” (David, you are a grown man who wears diapers for fun. That is all.)
