Every once in awhile Harry Reid realizes another six years have sped by. He then feels obliged, like a salmon seeking out the quiet stream of its birth, to fly to Nevada.
Here, he temporarily dons a new pair of blue jeans and gets himself photographed a) sitting on a hay bale, and/or b) holding a .22-caliber rifle with which he contends he once shot a rabbit.
To get re-elected in Nevada, you see, a politician has to contend he’s serious about that “protecting the Second Amendment” stuff, at least for a few weeks every term.
So you’ll pardon me if I suspect Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid wasn’t terribly shocked and disappointed when the latest round of federal “gun control” proposals failed to carry a filibuster-proof majority and went down to defeat in the U.S. Senate on April 17.
