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.

That one statement by the Senate Majority leader blew the bottom out of Coon's election.

There isn't ANY way to spin that for anything other than what it was. No clearer definition of the campaign needs to be said by Christine O'Donnell other than a picture of Harry and 'his pet' standing together and a single line underneath with the statement Harry uttered.

Who knew? The Democrat candidate for Delaware's Senate seat is a coondog. Blue tick or black and tan?

And the establishment GOP is worried about O'Donnell's college loans? (Not that they were worried about it when they supported her in 2008.)

It is amazing to me how idiotic people like Harry Reid can be. As tone deaf as Democrats like him are, even they have to be aware that their policies are proving to be unpopular so why in the hell would you highlight for the voters what kind of candidate Chris Coons is? There is clearly an underlying sentiment among a majority of the populace that the Dems have failed thus far so why highlight the fact that if you vote for Coons you will be voting for the same thing?

This latest stupid utterance by Reid is a ready-made campaign ad for Christine O'Donnell. He truly is the gift that keeps on giving - for conservatives...

We've got to get in the game! Here's 10 house seats that are in play:


Christine O'Donnell:


She was looking to get $50 or $60 thousand dollars yesterday. I just donated and it looks like she's got over $750K...

Talk's cheap let's help...one dollar...five dollars...

Let's run the scumbags out!

Will the O'Donnell campaign capitalize on this snobbish, stupid comment. I believe it will. We DO know that no member of the ruling class would make hay of it. Castle would have politely ignored it. Wouldn't want to offend the head of the party he intended to JOIN after the election!!!!

Reid never fails to impress with the abject stupidity of his remarks.

O'Donnell isn't the only one who should be using this quote in political ads. Sharon Angle should also.

Sir Toby Belch:

Harry, of the rheumy eyes and Prozac delivery
found a "pet" in this time of electric midterms. The saddest of sad saps has a protege....not a pit bull named Rocky, but
a Yalie Marxist named Coons. Reid's money
and machine may pull it out in Nevada, but he doesn't
have a coattail for his sorry male heir.
Harry is as bland as oatmeal, but as dangerous
as a snake. Angle, you go girl!
