“I have a home in Nevada that I haven't seen in months,” a tired-looking Reid said. “My pomegranate trees are, I’m told, are blossoming and have some pomegranates on them. I have some fig trees and roses and things that I just haven't seen. So I have constituents that I’m anxious to see, friends I need to visit with, relatives I need to visit with.”Doesn't your heart bleed for him. George Washington yearning for Mount Vernon has nothing on Harry Reid and his pomegranate trees.
Didn't Harry Reid spend millions of dollars fighting for reelection to make sure that he could spend time in Washington away from his pomegranate trees and rose bushes? Republicans would be quite happy to let Harry Reid follow Voltaire's advice to "cultivate [his] garden."
