Harry Reid's "Real Vote Getter" is a Pig

The New York Times recently ran a column critical of Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman's push to legalize prostitution. In response the elected official threatened to harm its author.

“I’ll take a baseball bat and break his head if he ever comes here.”

Had Oscar worn a rag on his head, might he be on a rendition flight to Guantanamo? This rising star in the Democratic Party did two things with his warning. First, he threatened physical violence. Second, he warned a member of the media not to come to his fair city. Are we losing out freedom to travel within our borders as well?

Nevada Senator Harry Reid called Oscar Goodman a "real vote getter" not long ago. The Senate Majority Leader entertained the prospect of Goodman's run for the U.S. Senate. Had Oscar won, would he be threatening Capital Hill members of the press with baseball bats?

The times are strange to say the least. The answer to a cowed Congress isn't a swing to other extreme with mob-like threats and violence. However, people are sick of sorry leadersip. The recent finger pointing on dismantling Saddam's army was pitiful to say the least. Was it Bush, Rumsfeld, Rice, Bremer or Cheney?

While things may be clear with Oscar Goodman, from my view it's clear the man is a pig. I guess that qualifies him to gorge at the campaign money trough with Damnocrats and Repugnicants.
