I’m not sure being described as Harry Reid’s “favorite pet” is quite the endorsement Delaware’s Democratic nominee for US Senate had in mind:
“I’m going to be very honest with you — Chris Coons, everybody knows him in the Democratic caucus. He’s my pet. He’s my favorite candidate,” Reid said.
“Let me tell you about him: A graduate of Yale Divinity School. Yale Law School. A two-time national debate champion. He represents two-thirds of the state now, in an elected capacity. I don’t know if you’ve ever seen him or heard him speak, but he is a dynamic speaker. I don’t mean loud or long; he’s a communicator. So that’s how I feel about Delaware. I’ve always thought Chris Coons is going to win. I told him that and I tried to get him to run. I’m glad he’s running. I just think the world of him. He’s my pet.“
Okay, not only is Harry Reid one of the most unpopular men in America, thus making his endorsement less than desirable, but how on Earth does it help a would-be senator to be described in a way that one associates with “docile” and “obedient?” That’ll go over big in an anti-establishment year.
But, more importantly, has he been housebroken?
