Reid's Town Hall "Evil-Mongers" and a Little Kitty Laughs

Not to be outdone by the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's "protesters are un-American", the Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is calling town hall protesters "evil-mongers".

Reid: Protesters are 'evil-mongers' (8/13/09 The Hill's Blog Briefing Room)

"Town hall protesters are "evil-mongers," says Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

"Reid coined the term in a speech to an energy conference in Las Vegas this week and repeated it in an interview with Politics Daily.

"Such "evil-mongers" are using "lies, innuendo and rumor," to drown out rational debate, Reid said.

""It was an original with me," Reid said of the term. "I maybe could have been less descriptive," he said, adding that "I doubt you'll hear it from me again."

"Nevertheless, Reid worked in the word one more time during the interview.

""I feel I haven't done anything to embarrass [my children]," Reid joked. "Except maybe call somebody an evil-monger.""

I was looking for an article that would make me laugh so that I could use this cute little gif animation, and now I've found the above. Good. And here's a kitty I found at Market Ticker.

What else can you do at this point, other than to laugh?

I simply do not understand the psychology of a person who calls his fellow Americans "evil-mongers", and is seemingly proud of the term he created.

And at the local town hall meeting in my area, people who were shouting down and drowning the legitimate concerns and opinions were, guess who? The supporters of the health care "reform" as proposed by Mr. Reid's Party. So much so that the Congressman who was conducting the town hall meeting mistook, at least initially, them as "opponents". After a particularly loud applause and shouting in support of what he just said, the Congressman thought the noise came from the opposition and admonished the audience for "not allowing the rational discussion". (He is not quite known as the sharpest guy in town, for sure.)
