I swear this is the equivalent of sticking your fingers in your ears and yelling "I can't hear you - I can't hear you". The ever entertaining pomegranate politician, Harry Reid (D-NV), had this to say over the weekend via The Hill:
"That [the Tea Party] will pass. They will lose a number of seats next year,"
And his well thought out reasoning for this - Nada. Just wishful thinking given that Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) won the straw poll this weekend in Ames, Iowa. And oh, by the way, Congresswoman Bachmann is the Tea Party candidate in the race for the Republican nomination. Well played Mr. Reid, well played.
