Harry bounces off the walls in newspaper interview

Gov. Brian Sandoval should sue for slander.

During an editorial board meeting with the Reno Gazette-Journal, Harry Reid was bouncing off the walls like a rhetorical cue ball — calling Joe Heck the most fraudulent person he has seen in 50 years in politics, accusing the mother of a Benghazi victim of being crazy and praising Sandoval.

“I wish we had more Republicans like Brian Sandoval, who you haven’t seen rushing to endorse this Republican nominee Donald Trump,” the paper quoted Reid as saying. “But Joe Heck, whoa, man, he loves this guy. He campaigns with him and thinks he’s the best. So, I like Brian Sandoval a lot. We need more Republicans like him.”

Sandoval should sue. For Harry Reid to praise anyone with an R after his name is defamation and libel per se.

The paper got a reaction from Heck but failed to give Sandoval a chance for a rejoinder.

“We all know Harry hasn’t been firing on all cylinders over the past couple years and this is just another example of how out of touch he is with Nevadans,” Heck said in a statement to the paper. “His retirement cannot come soon enough so that Nevada can have someone who truly represents them in this seat.”

The best laugh line of the meeting was: “I don’t accept anybody that criticizes me for being partisan, because I’m not. Only when I have to be, which is a lot lately.”

  1. Let’s see if Ho House Harry receives the same kind of blow back for attacking a Gold Star mother that the Trumpster received. I won’t hold my breath…

    Seems the quotes in that story were a bit much even for the RJ’s gov spox who tweeted “And in one fell swoop, Reid trumps Trump for Grand Quadruple Mega Whopper of the Year. Did not see that coming.”

  3. Barbara says:

    “His retirement cannot come soon enough …truer words were never spoken by a politician.

  4. Vernon Clayson says:

    He will do one of two things when he leaves office,despite senility setting in he will stay in Washington as a lobbyist or he will return here to Nevada to lead the Democrat party and thus ALL politics in the state. Doing favors for “friends” for 3 or 4 decades will be called in. He won’t write a book, who’d want to read a hundred pages of his bitter snarky insults?

  5. Patrick says:

    Heck is but a parasite on the butt of Nevada, Senator Reid deserves the respect of the entire thinking members of the state; sorry conservatives, go on about your business.

  6. Steve says:

    Patrick just included in all his own, personal hatred for anything less than 100% liberal and left, the RJ’s own liberal left spokesman Steve Sebelius!

    Mr. Sebelius has been known to deride the Senator on several occasions, including the one I posted about in this thread.

    Good one, Patrick! (you funny….sad person, you)

  7. Barbara says:

    Harry Reid actually made sense back in 1993. With these views Patrick would call Reid a right wing, racist bigot.

    Barbara….in your best Spicolli….”But, but he EEEVOLLVED, dude!”

  9. Barbara says:

    Yeah the Democratic party has really evollved. What used to be mainstream, widely held views is now seen as far right conservative bigotry.

    Of course, as we knew he would, Trump is evolving on this issue too.

  10. Steve says:

    Ayuh.

    Notice, with third party interest growing in the electorate, Trump shifts his “sanity” gears?

    Trump is a shill for Clinton.

  11. Patrick says:

    There is no more racist anti-constitutional “American” than a presidential candidate who says a certain religious group of Americans ought to be singled out, in violation of the 1st, 4th and 14th Amendments to the Constitution.

    But, this is what we expect from the rabid right as acceptable now a days.

  12. Steve says:

    AAANNND Patrick pulls a dead horse out to beat it up a bit more in hopes for another useless exchange of wasted words.

  13. Nevada doesn’t have a butt…but one thing is for sure, Harry Reid resembles the south end of a north bound donkey…his party’s mascot. January can’t come soon enough!

  14. Winston Smith says:

    Being Muslim is not a race, therefore doing something in opposition to them is not racist. One too many plays of that card…
