So, let me get this straight:
After four years of hearing about the birth certificate, Kenyan anti-colonialism, apologizing for America, the Ground Zero Mosque, the long form birth certificate, spiking the football about Osama bin Laden, death panels, shaking down BP, the state of Hawai'i's conspiracy to falsify the birth certificate, "you lie," Reverend Wright, the Black Panthers and the Justice Department, the Fast and the Furious and the Justice Department, keeping the President's name off the ballot because of the birth certificate, Shirley Sherrod, ACORN, voting fraud, the "unconstitutional" ACA, Michelle's racist thesis, "you didn't build that," and "gutting welfare reform"... everyday, all day, on Fox News, talk radio, all over the internet, in Facebook posts and chain emails...
I'm supposed to give a damn that Harry Reid is being a jackass about Mitt Romney's taxes?
And comparing Harry Reid being a jackass to McCarthyism? Everyone knows Harry Reid is a jackass. What they might not know is that the US Congress has someone ACTUALLY engaging in McCarthyism. Two someones, if you want to get technical about it.
