    It could be more of Reid, but almost anyone else would be better.

    That explains them getting elected, not necessarily how they get Senate leader positions.

    It starts with being a career politician. Related closely is a somnambulant voting public that sincerely doesn't know its hole from an ass in the ground. Sure, we discuss it here. At least most people on DP know who Reid and McConnell are and what they do or don't do, but most of the voting public in America doesn't have a feckin clue. People just vote for names they heard of and it has been proven time and time again, people vote party line because it is easier than knowing why they are voting for anyone.

    So here were are there is no way Reid or McConnell should hold office, but Americans keep voting them back in. Why? The two party system is rigged that way - AND GUESS WHAT? The two party system isn't going to change it.

    People continue to beg for a term limit law in Congress. That's laughable. It really is. Why? Because people continue to vote overwhelmingly for the incumbent! Reid and McConnell wouldn't be there if people would vote them out. The People already have the power to impose term limits by simply not voting for anyone who has served more than one or two terms. But the People can't be bother, they want Congress to impose the limits on themselves and as a result we get Reid and McConnell and Schumer, Pelosi and Boxer, Bachman, McCain, Franks, Jackson and a whole host of career politicians who suck the freedom out of the republic.

    Thank you. (phew). I feel better now.

    A good rant from time to time can do wonders.

    Total commitment to the agenda. Independent thinkers and voters need not apply.

    Reid is a scum bag but his tentacles run deep and like any cancer he will be extremely difficult to get rid of

    My guys? Which are those? I'm not a partisan. Somebody asked how people like Reid and McConnell get re-elected and I provided an opinion. So apparently we agree?
