    Damn shame he wasn't hurt more...

    There are over 40 jobs bills on his desk waiting to be voted on.

    His office must look like an episode of hoarders....

    Hey folks--don't want "dingy harry" hurt in an accident--I want him defeated--that will hurt him the most. Perhaps the folks in Nv. will someday wake up!
    regards

    Democrats will probably blame the accident on Bush.

    Poor Harry,

    Don't really know if this true, but it is a good story.


    Judy Wallman, a professional genealogy researcher in southern California , was doing some personal work on her own family tree. She discovered that Congressman Harry Reid's great-great uncle, Remus Reid, was hanged for horse stealing and train robbery in Montana in 1889. Both Judy and Harry Reid share this common ancestor.

    The only known photograph of Remus shows him standing on the gallows in Montana territory:

    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    On the back of the picture Judy obtained during her research is this inscription: 'Remus Reid, horse thief, sent to Montana Territorial Prison 1883, escaped 1887, robbed the Montana Flyer six times. Caught by Pinkerton detectives, convicted and hanged in 1889.'


    So Judy recently e-mailed Congressman Harry Reid for information about their great-great uncle.
    Harry Reid:


    Believe it or not, Harry Reid's staff sent back the following biographical sketch for her
    genealogy research:

    "Remus Reid was a famous cowboy in the Montana Territory . His business empire
    grew to include acquisition of valuable equestrian assets and intimate dealings with
    the Montana railroad. Beginning in 1883, he devoted several
    years of his life to government service, finally taking leave to resume his dealings
    with the railroad. In 1887, he was a key player in a vital investigation run by the
    renowned Pinkerton Detective Agency. In 1889, Remus passed away
    during an important civic function held in his honor when the platform upon
    which he was standing collapsed."

    NOW THAT's how it's done, Folks! That's real POLITICAL SPIN.

    Some of you guys take this stuff way too personally. It's one thing to disagree with someone, but it's another to wish them ill just because they disagree with you. It's sad that our political climate has become this polarized and, frankly, juvenile.

    bozo-wail is right, we take this way too seriously. In the long run, it's only our lives and livelyhoods that he is screwing up. To be polarized and upset about something the administation deems that trivial is very juvenile. We should not take it personally. After all, apathy has served us very well so far.
