Harry Reid ... Well Done, As Cooked By Chef Dennis Miller

Some on the Left side of the blogosphere could not seem to find the humor in this. Others did find it, and are probably still chuckling. Once it was aired on the FOX's Half-Hour News Hour, people starting scrambling to get it. Of cousre, Allah @ Hot Air heard the call, and responded. Check it out, because if you dislike Harry Reid as much as the nation currently does -- Harry Reid's favorability is at 19% -- then you can truly appreciate this from Dennis Miller.

For those that would like the rant kept for posterity's sake, I have transcribed the entire thing below:

Hey folks, tonight I'm gonna talk about Harry Reid. Now it is one of life's most pronounced ironies that the Senator who represents Vegas is such a dim bulb.

I have had it up to ten feet above my head with Reid's projectile naysaying, and so I present the following with no due respect, sir.

First off, the appearance ... I'm bemused by the fact that the libs fancy themselves as young idealists who are going to shake it up, and then they're forced to fall in behind Dorian Grey's lighting stand-in. Whenever I see Reid speak I half expect to see Marg Helgenberger and the CSI team run out and put a chalk outline around the podium.

Next, the voice ... If it's possible to make Mr. Limpet sound like Demosthenes, Reid does it every time he opens his ashen pie-hole, and haltingly forces out that tremulous, pale-gray oratory that sounds like it's oozing from a stuck caulking gun.

Third, to quote the great Stephen Boyd, the constant bringdown from 'we killed the Patriot Act' to 'we'll gain House seats' to his manum opus 'we've lost the war;' Reid has been unrelentingly bleak in his appraisal of the conflict of our lifetime. I think he believes that getting his negative comments in early could be the one chance that a non-entity like he has at a place in history. His is a mediocre man's Thermopylae.

Senator, only in the off-the-rack culture that we currently have could a whiny hack like you somehow rise to a position of leadership. The bad guys look to you to reinforce their belief that we are the weak horse, and eminently conquerable. You are making that assertion so easy for them that they no doubt view you as the derriere of said horse.

Now the first rule of Fight Club is you don't talk about Fight Club. Harry, I hate to be the one to break this to you, but trust me, there are many millions of people who concur with this and don't have the opportunity that I do. You are a vague, transluscent living shade who barely matters. And if you really want to serve the country that affords a trifle like you the opportunity to delude himself into thinking that he matters, you must never, ever speak out loud in public again.

I think that this is a cutting, and quite fitting, rant about the Senate Majority leader that simply cannot seem to accomplish much during his tenure. And Dennis is very astute in noting that our enemies do listen to him. there have been a number of video files and audio files constructed by our enemies that utilize similar talking points. That is the crux of my dislike of this man.

We can go back to the previous war in Vietnam, and see that many int he Congress did take an antiwar stance as the movement gained momentum. But comparing the war on terrorism to Vietnam is like comparing apples to oranges. This war is the a defining moment in our history as much as World War II was, and no one int he Congress at that time would dare speak out as Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and the rest of their Democrat colleagues have.

The mantra continues to churn out from the halls of Congress like a noxious cloud, and even after having created such a bleak picture for the public, the general populace still refuses to give into the moonbat demands to withdraw our troops from the battelfield. We still support this war. We still support the mission. To do contrary is to dishonor those abroad right now, and those that have died in defense of this nation.

Herry Reid should be ashamed of himself, and I did get a chuckle out of Dennis Miller shaming him on behalf of those that do not have, as he said, the opportunities that he does. Last night, Dennis Miller spoke on behalf of the near-silent majority of americans that are sick and tired of a worn-out, overplayed, skipping record.
