Harry Reid on Chris Coons: "He's my pet"

When Harry Reid was asked what he thought about Chris Coons, Christine O’Donnell’s Democrat opponent for the Senate, he got really weird and said Coons is his “pet.” In his weirdness, though, he let slip exactly how much Coons will be an Obama/Reid Democrat and a guaranteed vote for the America-killing Obama agenda:

“I’m going to be very honest with you — Chris Coons, everybody knows him in the Democratic caucus. He’s my pet. He’s my favorite candidate,” Reid said.

“Let me tell you about him: A graduate of Yale Divinity School. Yale Law School. A two-time national debate champion. He represents two-thirds of the state now, in an elected capacity. I don’t know if you’ve ever seen him or heard him speak, but he is a dynamic speaker. I don’t mean loud or long; he’s a communicator. So that’s how I feel about Delaware. I’ve always thought Chris Coons is going to win. I told him that and I tried to get him to run. I’m glad he’s running. I just think the world of him. He’s my pet.”

Reid thinks of Coons as his pet? As in his dog? Man’s best friend? A coonhound, perhaps. What an easy campaign commercial for O’Donnell. Coons is Reid’s and Obama’s loyal and obedient puppy coonhound who will thoughtlessly follow whatever orders they give him. They tell Coons to vote for Cap and Trade, and Coons says “Woof!”. Vote for amnesty for illegals, “Woof!” Universal voter registration, “Woof!” Comprehensive pension reform, “Woof!”

If Delawareans want Obamanomics, perpetual high unemployment, and malaise in spades, then Coons is their dog, er, man.

Update: Michelle Malkin offers another twist on Reid’s creepiness:

Quick, someone please photoshop Reid as Gollum holding his precious, precious Bearded Marxist Coons.

And go ahead, Democrats. Keep gloating about how you’ve got Delaware in the bag.
