What is it with this guy? He is totally charmless. Every few days it seems that we're turning on our computers to find out something incredibly awkward and offensive that the Senate Majority Leader has said. Remember when he complained about how tourists to the U.S. Capitol offended his olfactory senses? And then last week he stepped all over the fun that the Democrats were having celebrating Christine O'Donnell's victory in Delaware by calling Chris Coon "his pet." An ad is already being run in Delaware using Reid's stupid line.
Now he's embarrassing New York Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand by calling her "the hottest member" of the Senate. Ewww.
Maybe he should just going back to calling Obama a "light-skinned African American with no Negro dialect."
At some points, it is no longer a matter of the man making gaffes because he just speaks awkwardly. Why not just accept Occam's razor that Reid is expressing how he really thinks of people.
