MERRIAM-WEBSTER'S DICTIONARY DEFINES "DELUSIONAL" AS:
A persistent false psychotic belief regarding the self or persons or objects outside the self that is maintained despite indisputable evidence to the contraryJust when you thought Senator Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) couldn't possibly say anything stupider, he proves you wrong -- again.
On MSNBC's "Ed Show" this past Thursday, Dingy Harry topped himself yet once again in statements of delusional grandeur in this exchange with Progressive talk show host and carbon footprint behemoth Ed Schultz:
HARRY REID: Nevada, for twenty years, was at the top of the economic food chain. If you wanted a good job, come to Nevada. If you wanted to invest in real estate, no place better in America than Nevada. If you wanted to get a good job, come to Nevada. Well, when Wall Street collapsed, which, by the way, [Sharon Angle] said it was caused by too much regulation -- we had farther to fall than any other state.
ED SCHULTZ: The state has dropped farther than any other state?
REID: Oh yes, because we were at the top and we've fallen very hard. So people have been hurting, and I understand that, and it doesn't give them comfort or solace for me to tell them, you know, but for me, we'd be in a worldwide depression. They want to know what I've done for them, and that's why it's important for me, any chance I get, to say that my number one job is to create jobs. And [Angle] says that it's not her job to create jobs.
Sweet Holy Mary Mother of God.
Two thoughts immediately spring to mind: 1) Ed Schultz deserves an Emmy for not instantly blowing a snot-bubble out of his nose in a fit of hysterical laughter, and b) Reid is certifiable.
Silly me, and here I thought it was President Obama who was credited with bringing the world's economy back from the brink. Why? Because Obama said so himself:
Barack Obama on the Recovery Act:
There has never been a program of this scale, moved at this speed, that has been enacted as effectively and as transparently as the Recovery Act. One year later, it is largely thanks to the Recovery Act that a second depression is no longer a possibility.Sounds like the makings of a clash of the titanic egos, or "Nevada Harry meets Super Barack-O".
By a long shot, this isn't the first instance Reid has shown a penchant for self-inflated delusion. The Senate Moronical Leader also recently claimed that it was his own brilliant, Pattonesque battle strategy that actually won the war in Iraq -- by him proclaiming, "The war is lost." Genius!
Yes, that's right, by voting for the war then against it, by calling General David Patraeus a liar, and by tactically proclaiming the war was lost, Reid single-handedly brought the terrorists to their knees. Hurray for Harry!
As November 2nd nears, don't be surprised to hear even more Homeric jabberwocky burbling from the lips of Harry Reid. One wonders what could possibly be next. Reid designed the Great Pyramids? Reid slipped Adolph the mickey? Reid invented the Internet? No, wait, that was a different Progressive prevaricator. Oh, well, one blast of hot air feels just like the other.
Let's all pray that after November 2nd, Harry Reid will be packing his bags for Searchlight. There must be at least one rubber room open at the asylum back home.
