Reid Screed

I love this photo of Harry "We Can't Win"' Reid showing the netroots at the KosKonvention the proper posture for surrendering. That's why I wondered yesterday what Reid might have to say upon hearing that we're killing Iraqi terrorists at a 1,500-a-month clip.

He was mum on that, natch. But today he spouted off about the latest National Intelligence Estimate, which said we're making military gains but the Iraqi government is still troubled.

Take it away, Harry:
Responding to the assessment, Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.), said that "as today's NIE makes clear, a political solution is extremely unlikely in the near term. Further pursuit of the administration's flawed escalation strategy is not in our nation's best interests."
Does it seem as odd to you as it does to me that a man who can't get a single anti-war resolution through the Senate he supposedly leads feels comfortable questioning someone else's efficacy as a leader?

Hillary went even further, calling for the removal of Maliki if he doesn't straighten up an fly right. What a fine model of Democracy that would be -- from the party that says of Bush every time he does something they don't like, "What kind of role model for Iraqi democracy is he?"
