UPDATE: Harry Reid: Protesters are “Evil-Mongers.” Remember how Democrats and media made fun of Bush for talking about “evildoers?” But those were just terrorists, not people who, you know, opposed the Obama Administration’s agenda.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Allen S. Thorpe writes: “A reminder for Brother Reid. He needs to read his Book of Mormon.”

MORE: Reader Barry Dauphin writes: “Looks like Harry Reid is defining evil down, to paraphrase the late Patrick Moynihan. The Axis of Evil used to be Saddam, Kim Jong-Il and Khamenei. Now it’s grandmothers worried about losing healthcare benefits. Hope and Change!”
