Never one to let an opportunity to say something confusing
and weird pass him by, John Kerry issued a statement last night
congratulating Harry Reid on his victory
over Sharron Angle. Naturally, because it came from Kerry, this
statement favorably compared the Senate Majority Leader to Count Dracula. Considering how hard Reid
worked in recent months to convince Nevada voters he was not, in fact, a
Romanian nobleman who wanted to drink their blood, Kerry's words likely
fall under the category of 'unhelpful'. The full statement (complete
with HuffPo bashing):
"Politico was wrong, Huffington Post was
wrong, hell, all the pundits were wrong. Harry Reid isn't just Dracula,
he isn't just Lazarus, he's our Leader and our whole caucus is thrilled
that he's unbreakable and unbeatable."
