Kill Me Now.

A couple of days ago, Politico asked "What if Reid loses?" This part, right here, is just precious:

“You’ve got people who ask, ‘What does Harry actually do around here?’ I say, ‘Just wait till he’s gone. You’ll see just what he did; how he held things together,’” says a Democratic insider with ties to the leader.
Uh huh. I'm pretty sure the answer to the question is, "shit might actually get done." But hey, I'd settle for an end to garbage like this:

Senate Democratic leaders signaled Thursday that their version of health care overhaul will include some form of a public option, but it may be limited in scope so they can secure 60 votes to break a Republican filibuster.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) called the public option a "relative term" and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said "there is not one way to Rome, there are lots of ways to Rome."

"Remember, a public option is a relative term," Reid said. "There's a public option, there's a public option, and there's a public option. And we're going to look at each of them."

It's like Gertrude Stein crapped, and that crap is now a Senator from Nevada.
