Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) is bending on the pre-recess deadline for a health reform bill.
"The Republicans have asked for more time, and I don't think it's unreasonable," Reid said at a noon press conference.
You must know that no matter how accommodating you are to the righties, they will still portray you like this:
While actually seeing you like this:
And you know what, they've got a point, you miserable little weiner.
Why don't you start acting like you lead the majority party and give us a fucking health care plan! You have a filibuster-proof majority and you still feel the need to kiss Republican ass at every turn, hoping that the redneck yahoos of Nevada won't be tto mad at you and you might get re-elected. well guess what? There's no point in getting elected if you're not going to do anything when you're in charge. Let someone else be the majority leader if you can't handle the pressure.
Hey Harry, Guess What?
Cambridge Sgt. James Crowley, cop who arrested black scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr., teaches class about profiling
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) - The white police sergeant criticized by President Barack Obama for arresting black scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. in his Massachusetts home is a police academy expert on racial profiling.
Cambridge Sgt. James Crowley has taught a class about racial profiling for five years at the Lowell Police Academy after being hand-picked for the job by former police Commissioner Ronny Watson, who is black, said Academy Director Thomas Fleming.
"I have nothing but the highest respect for him as a police officer. He is very professional and he is a good role model for the young recruits in the police academy," Fleming told The Associated Press on Thursday.
