Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says Speaker Boehner's "fiscal cliff" plans "are non-starters in the Senate."—

At a press conference this afternoon, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid reiterated that Democrats would stand firm against John Boehner’s “Plan B” proposal for the fiscal cliff — and evidently any other proposal put forth by Republicans.
Reid once again called for the GOP to “get serious” about solving the fiscal cliff crisis:
And then went on to demonstrate just how serious he is about Republicans being serious:
Yuk yuk yuk!
And took the opportunity to show off his mad pop culture skillz:
Well, Harry Reid took a bunch of senators to see “Lincoln” yesterday, so maybe we’ll get a John Wilkes Booth reference at the next presser!
Lest anyone worry that the D.C. laugh factory is a boys’ club, Washington’s Patty Murray showed that women can be funny, too:
It’s like watching the Three Stooges. Weight jokes, movie references, dead babies … looks like we’ve hit the trifecta!
So, after all that, what’s the take-away?
Good thing the Democrats are so willing to flout GOP obstructionism, right?
Hope you’re not in a rush.
Hey, it’s just like in that movie!
