WASHINGTON (AP) - Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid became the latest Democrat to stray into rhetorical trouble Tuesday, botching statements on three subjects in one news conference - including the fragile health of the chamber's most senior members. The Nevada Democrat reported that one of them, Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., was absent because he was receiving a new round of treatment for his brain cancer. Asked if the cancer was in remission, Reid replied, "As far as I know, it is, yes."If it weren't for Dem gaffes we'd have no gaffes at all. Gloom, despair and agony on me. That line will make sense to those old enough to remember Cornfield County and Hee-Haw.
Kennedy's office refused to confirm Reid's comments or make any statement in response, the public silence a classic Washington disavowal.
Reid was then asked about Sen. Robert C. Byrd, at 91 the longest-serving senator in history, who was hospitalized over the weekend for an infection. Reid reported that Byrd was to be released from the hospital Tuesday or perhaps later in the week.

Sen. Reid botches 3 subjects at news conference
I may ruffle a few feathers with what I have to say, but I've never let that stop me, so, I'm going to say it anyway.
Many are calling for the impeachment of Nancy Pelosi and the removal of Harry Reid. I fully agree with the intent of those calls, I sent one to my Congressman, Mr. Sam Johnson, just a few minutes ago. Here is the truth of the matter. Reid and Pelosi are BOTH idiots, but they belong to the party of IDIOTS, and it just so happens that this party of IDIOTS is in control of BOTH Houses of Congress and the White House.
We can scream IMPEACH until we're blue in the face and it's not going to do one damned bit of good. You don't believe that? How'd the Bill Clinton impeachment thing go?? Just sayin'...
Bill Clinton, President of the United States was impeached by the House of Representatives on December 19, 1998, and acquitted by the Senate on February 12, 1999. The charges, perjury, obstruction of justice, and abuse of power arose from the Monica Lewinsky scandal and the Paula Jones lawsuit. The trial proceedings were largely party-line, with no Democratic Senators voting for conviction and only five Democratic Representatives voting to impeach. In all, 55 senators voted not guilty, and 45 voted guilty on the perjury charge. The Senate also acquitted on the charge of obstruction, with 50 votes cast as not guilty, and 50 votes as guilty.So, let me point this out to everyone, we stand about as much chance of a successful impeachment and conviction of Pelosi as we do expecting Harry Reid to grow a set and turn Conservative.

This matter of Reid and Pelosi is, for the most part, in the hands of the voters of their districts in Nevada and California, until those citizens man up and do the right thing, the people of this entire nation will continue to suffer the ill effects of both of these cretins, Reid and Pelosi.
Here in Texas we have a way of dealing with our elected officials when they become a bit too self absorbed and all important in their own eyes. We vote them out of office, or, in the case of George Bush, we send them to the Oval Office. I really don't think the American people are ready for the certain disaster that this nation would suffer if either Reid OR Pelosi were to ascend to that office.
If it weren't so deadly serious, the gaffes of the Democrats in power, Biden, Pelosi and Reid, we would be enjoying one of the most entertaining comedies of error that the American people had ever witnessed!
