Is Reid really a Republican?

Just when I thought I couldn't get any more disgusted with Heckuva Job Harry, he pulls out all of the stops on stupidity and defends Ted Stevens.
Reid told Politico that he believes Stevens shouldn't serve jail time.

My personal feeling, you guys, I don't know what good that [would do]... He was a real war hero too, you know. He's been punished enough.

Reid said he thinks Stevens was simply behind the curve of modern ethics standards in not disclosing the $250,000 in gifts he received from VECO CEO Bill Allen, saying of the famously internet-unsavvy Uncle Ted that "it's a different world we live in, and Stevens did not understand that."
Perhaps Reid should review his own understanding of the intertoobz. What they did to Stevens, they can do to him.

Looking back on Reid's sorry record, I'm hard pressed to find a single instance of when he stood up against the Republicans. Instead the record groans under the weight of the instances where he not only enabled them, but as here, actively sought to aid and abet their criminality while simultaneously derailing Democratic attempts at accountability. The best explanation I can think of is he's really a secret member of the GOP caucus. A double agent if you will.

Reid today is confidently predicting he will 'lead' the party through 2015. If the Democratic party wants to keep their majority and regain the confidence of the electorate, they would do well to not only kick him out as majority leader and put someone in who knows how to play this game, but also run him out of office altogether with a strong primary challenge in 2010.

Harry Reid is worse than a Republican. He's within our tent, therefore more dangerous.

I'm really beginning to think he's a double agent.

Well, he's a pro-life senator from a state that is based on gambling revenue and some informal industries.

On the other hand he is reputed to have cleaned up much corruption.

I'm really of two opinions about him, because he is not the worst of all possible majority leaders.

I think we can do better, though.

Well, look at it this way. Reid is a sheep that will do what Obama tells him.

I don't think he's been an effective leader at all and he's sabotaged a lot of the ethics reforms. I'm not so sure he's a willing sheep for Obama either Truth. Certainly not like he was for Bush.

Time will tell I guess. I think we need to get rid of him if we hope for any real reform.
