Harry Reid calls on GOP to 'get serious' as Dems crack lousy jokes

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!

Not to be outdone, Dick Durbin chimed in:

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!



Harry Reid blocks vote on Obama’s fiscal cliff proposal, calls it ‘made up’

    How can the GOP get serious when there is clown in charge of the Senate?

    • conservativechick

      Someone must have told him money does grow on trees, so he had the EPA come up with a new regulation to protect them. We’re all set now, no need for a budget!

  • Steve_J

    In Reid’s case I might be inclined to agree with Joyce Carol Oates.

  • stuckinIL4now

    I think it’s time for We The People to bring a lawsuit against Harry Reidiculous, as leader of the US Senate, for violation of his oath of office in failing to uphold the Constitution and dereliction of duty for disobeying the law by not passing a budget for 3-1/2 years.

      My “REVENGE” vote will be to oust Dirty Harry as majority leader in 2014 by taking the majority away from him. We must support and defend any and all conservative Republican Senate candidates and keep the House. Obama will be powerless for his last TWO YEARS!

  • r_coplin2001

    Okay Harry Reid when are the Democrats in the Senate which you are the Senate leader going to come up with budget cuts that are wasteful spending or even to come up with any kind of budget.

    “Reid says Boehner has wasted a week with a “pointless political stunt”

    As opposed to Reid following Obama’s directive to sit on annual budgets since Obama’s inauguration being a “Pointless political stunt”?

    • conservativechick

      A WEEK? Harry has had YEARS to fix this sudden “crisis.”

  • AZWarrior

    Hope the casino thugs that own old Harry are happy when Vegas business falls apart because Harry refused to do his job and vote on bills. Lets go for the Thelma & Loise.

  • sqeptiq

    Why must conservatives be so humorless?

    • Itype2slow

      … see, the punchline was that Reid said the GOP needed to get serious, then he cracks jokes, Hillarious!

  • Itype2slow

    So, after Schumer complained that “Plan B” was “so 2 years ago” did he again call for a return to the Clinton era tax rates
