Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid had an unusual form of praise for New York's junior senator, Kirsten Gillibrand, this morning at the fundraiser Mayor Bloomberg hosted for him at his townhouse - referring to her as "the hottest member" as she sat just a few feet away, according to three sources.I am not going to try and pretend to be outraged because - seriously - this guy is the gift that keeps on giving. Someone follow him around 24/7 with a microphone before he is sent to his forced retirement November 2nd, please. The lone left-wing blog brave enough to touch this statement on Memeorandum sums up the magnitude of Harry's stupidity perfectly:
The comment prompted Gillibrand to turn red, according to the sources, and created a bit of stir among the small crowd there.
"It was pretty shocking when he said it," said one source familiar with the remark and the reaction.
Speaking of Harry Reid's office, all I could say about the Senate Majority Leader after reading this was "Oh, f*ck no."Oh yes, he's all yours.
