I'm just wild about Harry 

Harry Reid's been getting off some good zingers—in that low-keyed, mild-mannered style that he has—the style that makes the Republicans even more apoplectic with rage than usual.

On Frist's latest filibuster scam:

"Thanks for the offer, but I think it was a big, wet kiss to the far right."
(via Contra Costa Times)

On Bush's Social Security phase-out:

"[Bush] only wants home runs. He is not willing to try for a bunt single or a double - home run or nothing. Well, I think he is going to end up getting nothing on this privatization."
(via Christian Science Monitor)

"The more the president travels, the better off we are,"
(via Baltimore Sun)

On the Republican argument that judges aren't usually blocked before coming to a vote:

"To have these senators—and my favorite is Orrin Hatch—stand up righteous and indignant and say this has never happened before is an absolute lie."
(via Time)

On theocracy:

``God does not take part in partisan politics.''
(via ABC)

On the responsibilities of Democrats:

"The American people are looking for help. We're all they've got."
(via Atlantic Monthly)

For good or ill, Reid's right. Let's make the best of it!
