Harry Reid: Re-Elect Me Or I’ll Beat My Wife

February 24, 2010

It’s a good thing that Harry Reid is acknowledging this now, such that his wife has 9 months to get out of the home to safety:

Harry Reid Threatens His Wife, Media Remains Silent

It is said that people in desperate circumstances often say out loud what they plan to do, but are ignored until it is too late. We all have friends we wish we had listened to closer in their hour of need. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is down in the polls against both of his likely Republican challengers: by 6% against Sue Lowden and 8% against Danny Tarkanian. Recently, the distraught Reid made this startling admission about the future trajectory of his life:

“Men when they’re out of work tend to become abusive. I met with some people while I was home dealing with domestic abuse. It has gotten out of hand. Why? Men don’t have jobs. . . Men, when they’re out of work, tend to become abusive.”

Although this would eventually lead to an entertaining episode of Cops: Las Vegas, I think it is important for Reid to take a step back, and count to ten.  Senator Reid, you are despondent.  I get that.  Many men are going through difficult times right now.  Many are searching for work and struggling to find the help that the stimulus plan was supposed to provide, but failed to.  Understand this: no matter how your election goes in November, there is absolutely no excuse for you to hit your wife.

You run, Mrs. Reid.  You get yourself to safety where that bitter, hateful, unemployed man can’t hurt you.

Mind you, looking at Harry Reid’s puny physique, I would be willing to put my money down on the wife in a knock-down, drag-out, sight unseen.  My biggest fear is that the dethroned Senate Majority Leader would cheat.

Spousal abuse is clearly a serious and real problem.  But any liberal who wants to excoriate me for politicizing it had better first excoriate his or her Senate Majority Leader for pimping it to push his political agenda.
