Cold Fury

Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Working as intended

Everybody’s up in arms about the odious Harry Reid’s latest eructation, but they’re missing the point.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Tuesday asserted the southern border is secure despite the massive surge of illegal minors from Central America that has overwhelmed federal agencies.

“The border is secure,” he told reporters after the Senate Democrats’ weekly policy lunch. “[Sen.] Martin Heinrich [(D-N.M.)] talked to the caucus today. He’s a border state senator. He said he can say without any equivocation the border is secure.”

Ace, for one, has a lot of fun kicking this seemingly–hell, patently–absurd statement around. But look at it from Reid’s warped point of view: the border is currently every bit as secure as he wants it to be–which is to say damned near abolished–so why wouldn’t he make a statement that, to him, must seem incontrovertible and obvious?

Now, if you want to talk about Reid’s grasp of reality and his cynical manipulation of the English language, well, that would be another thing altogether.
