Harry Reid Phones It In

“Harry Reid Will Only Do Town Halls By Telephone, Media Mum.”

Given that this is the man of the people who said last December

“My staff tells me not to say this, but I’m going to say it anyway,” said Reid in his remarks. “In the summer because of the heat and high humidity, you could literally smell the tourists coming into the Capitol. It may be descriptive but it’s true.”

…I can’t say I’m entirely surprised by Harry’s decision to further isolate himself from reality.

Update: In the comments below, Andrew M. Garland proposes a Turing-style test named after Reid when constituents call their local politician to determine if he demonstrates a simulacrum of intelligence. Or as in Reid’s case, a less than adequate set of memory chips.
