[Watch] Dingy Harry Calls It Quits

Proof positive that if you wait long enough, problems will take care of themselves.  Nevada Senator Harry Reid announced today that he will not be seeking re-election to the U.S. Senate in 2016.

Twenty-two months is a long time – long enough for the Nevada Democrats to come up with a viable candidate for that seat.  And long enough for Dingy Harry to block and parry Republican attempts to circumvent Barack Obama’s agenda with legislation and veto overrides.  After all, he has nothing to lose.  It’s going to be entertaining if nothing else.

Note to frustrated conservatives: this is what’s called “attrition” and it’s how the current leadership will be replaced with those who reflect the shift to the right in the political wind.
