A little bit of healthy vitriol
Harry Reid: "One reason that we have the fires burning in Southern California is global warming."
Harry Reid (mere seconds later, in the same press session, on being asked about it): "I didn't say the reason the fires were burning in Southern California was global warming..."
How can you disagree with this?
Reid is a witless opportunist. Half a million people are evacuated, at least 1,200 homes have been lost so far, federal, state, county and local resources are performing acts of heroism all over California to save lives and property, and Harry Reid wants to blame it on global warming to score political points for his energy bill? What a creep.
