Yep, you read that right. That is what passes for “real journalist” reporting these days. Some guy totally told Senator Harry Reid (D-Nev.) a thing. And stuff.

Also, he said your mom wears combat boots and girls have cooties.

Yep. He invoked Romney’s father and said he’d be “embarrassed about his son.” Senator Reid is, evidently, the world’s oldest junior high-schooler. The media, however, report it as gospel. “Exclusive” gospel, even.

The “exclusive” story?

Saying he had “no problem with somebody being really, really wealthy,” Reid sat up in his chair a bit before stirring the pot further. A month or so ago, he said, a person who had invested with Bain Capital called his office.

“Harry, he didn’t pay any taxes for 10 years,” Reid recounted the person as saying.

“He didn’t pay taxes for 10 years! Now, do I know that that’s true? Well, I’m not certain,” said Reid. “But obviously he can’t release those tax returns. How would it look?

Oh, well. A person. He’s not certain, but how can we know? He’s “not certain,” but that doesn’t stop him from claiming that an investor is certain of Romney’s personal business?

Hey, you know who else said something similar lately? The Obama campaign and its surrogates, who said “it’s impossible to know for sure” whether or not Romney is a criminal.

Nice, Harry. Good little parrot-boy! New hotness: Just throw anything out there and add in ‘well, can’t be certain” or “impossible to know for sure.” They are just asking questions! Harry Reid, the new Truther. Can fire melt steel? “How do I know that’s true? Well, I’m not certain,” says Truther Reid.

And the lapdog media will lap it up and “report” it as fact.

Citizens are rightly disgusted by the senator and they decided to turn their disgust into excellent mockery. Hashtags enter the mockage-zone as well: #HarryReidFacts and #ReidRumors.

And, win.

Update: The giggle-snorts continue.

Paging HuffPo: There is an “exclusive” here! Do we know it’s true? No, but we can’t be certain!

Hour two of the crisis!


Paging DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz! The crisis continues and the Reid camp remains conspicuously silent. What are you hiding, Harry? When will the DNC address this?

  • Kim Priestap

    Wait. Mitt Romney didn’t have an income over the past 10 years to pay taxes on. He didn’t take a salary when he took the job of saving the 2002 Olympics nor did he take a salary when he was governor of Massachusetts. Instead, he lived off of his investments during that time, so he’s paid capital gains taxes instead. Reid is a total sleaze.

  • stuckinIL4now

    With the gubmint shutdown threat off the agenda, I guess Sen(ile) Reidiculous has nothing else to scorch the right with so he chooses a random phone caller? Hmmm, is that anything like how if it’s on the Internet it’s true cuz everything on the Internet can only be the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth? Hey Dinge, and this is not just a random rumor, but what about those 1,190 days you’ve been breaking the law by failing to pass a budget?

  • PennyRobinsonFanClub

    Ain’t it great, though, to literally see Sock Puppet’s house of cards falling apart before our eyes?

  • Lucid_American

    And Reid calls himself a good Mormon?!? He is doing more to set back Mormonism than anyone else. He needs to be called out by the Mormon church, just like Pelosi should be called out by the Catholic church. It is time for these institutions of faith and morality to “nut up” and take a stand against their own!

    • effinayright

      Stupid twit. If he didn’t have a job, he lived off income from investments, investments that were made after paying federal INCOME tax. IOW he paid capital gains taxes on his investments.

      In the meantime it’s a matter of public record that, according to the Mormon church, he gave great gobs of money to the church.

      You’re not lucid, you are a certified Dumbass!!! NO ONE will listen to you unless they are as utterly brain dead as you —-and that’s a vanishingly small class of people.

      • TomJB

        effinayright, lucid was talking about Reid, not Romney.

        • Michael Spurlock

          Yeah, when you expect to see Democrat elk and a cow comes over the hill, sometimes the cow has antlers. Everybody chalk it up to It being too early in the day for enemy identification.

          • Kristophr

            Why did someone paint the word “Cow” on the side of my antlerless elk?

      • Lucid_American

        Dear Effinayright,

        If you had any basic reading and comprehension skills at all you would have understood that I was criticizing Harry Reid and not Mitt Romney! It isn’t amazing that when you label others you only serve to label yourself? Clearly lucidity is not one of your better attributes. Go find someone else’s leg to hump…Dumbass!!!

  • thetawake

    With this and the whole white house ‘maybe he’s a criminal’ thing, are we beginning to see dems fear creeping up through the WH egomania such that they’re now going with the throw-spaghetti-at-the-wall-see-how-many-noodles-stick strategy? I’m 40 now, do I get to act this way when i’m all grown-up like you, senator?

  • 3arnhardt

    When do we get to see the open books on Harry Reid’s land deals? #insidertrading

    • JMT Publications XXXXX

      After he gets through proving he’s not a pederast, of course.

  • Owen007

    Wow, Romney must be scaring the s*** out of Democrats to go for such a brazenly false story. Only the Obama sycophants are going to buy this nonsense. It’ll be a replay of the felon charge and the vampire capitalist charge before that. The stench of desperation has become pungent.

    Oh, and shout out to 1 Mountain At A Time for the funniest tweet of the bunch.

  • JeffWRidge

    Congress needs to create a committee to investigate whether Romney paid taxes. I nominate Tim Geithner, Charlie Rangel, Tom Daschle and John Kerry. If anyone knows about not paying taxes, it’s these men.

  • Colonel Haiku

    When he was traveling the country schleping his book a few years ago, I heard (on a Sacramento talk radio show) Harry Reid claim that he was the inspiration for Scorsese’s movie “Casin0” (“that was MY story”, he stated). There ain’t a lie he and the Dimocrats won’t tell.

    • TomJB

      I see him more like the senator in the godfather. Thinks he is important when in fact he is corleone’s b****

  • robcrawford2

    Wait — the campaign for the admitted illegal drug user is accusing someone else of being criminal?

  • elkh1

    Someone is desperately desperate. Oh mine!
    Someone told me, this might not be true, but Reid eats babies for lunch.

  • TugboatPhil

    At this point, I don’t believe anything they bring out against Romney. If the headline on election day was “Romney kills and eats baby on Capitol steps” I woud still NOT vote for Obama.

    Bring it on, media. We know your game and aren’t playing anymore.

  • teapartydoc

    So Hairy Reed is a pederast, you say? Why am I not surprised?

    • Old Patriot

      I’m not sure he’s a pederast, but I do understand he was a friend of Penn State’s Sandusky. Also that he has mid-stages of Alzheimer’s’ disease. And apparently can’t read, since he keeps ignoring what’s clearly written in the US Constitution as the duties of the Senate. Nevada should do the right thing and recall this man before he hurts himself – and them.

  • $1718659

    I have a cousin who has a friend who has a brother who has a friend who said Harry Reid is a demented old fool. I think I can believe that one.

  • Love of Country

    Reid is the one who wanted to lose the Iraq war to usher in a win in the ’06 elections. In a historically traitorous decision to turn public sentiment against the war he said “the surge had failed” at a time when all reports pointed to the contrary.

    Harry Reid is truly a man who wanted to lose a war in order to win an election and it cannot be disputed ….. a traitor of the highest order. (no hyperbole)

    Leave it to democrats to keep him in office …. even after the fact!

  • TallDave

    It’s time for a new tag: #StuffHarryReidHeard “Some guy who went to school with Barack Obama told me got straight Fs, cooked dog every night, prayed to Mecca five times a day, and talked endlessly about how glad he was to be born in Kenya rather than the U.S.”

  • Maggie

    If Obama was running against Jesus Christ for POTUS his sycophants and the
    MSM (yeah, I know … one in the same) would be calling JC an idiot by way of
    being ‘born in a barn’, an anti-Semite for overturning the tables of the
    moneychangers in the Temple, a moonshiner for turning water into wine, and a
    necrophile for raising Lazarus from the dead.

    • TomJB

      Not to mention being investigated by the USDA for the mass distribution food without a proper food handling license.

  • Lee Dodson

    Harry has got to get his Aricept prescription refilled. Target called and said it was ready.

  • Californio

    I heard Obama was a Muslim, well, I can’t say that is it true…..or not, but that IS what I heard……[naturally just saying such a thing would be denouced as it is against Obama!]
    “You said His name.”
    “Aren’t you forgetting something, buster?!!!”
    (nervous laughter)” oh, my goodness, yes – I forgot to add ‘..blessed be his name!’ ”
    “That’s better – you won’t get audited this time – but let that be a warning to you!”

  • Mark James

    One of his professors at Harvard told me his transcripts prove he is a communist.

  • Yeeheecom

    Harry Reid has no creditability so anything he says is irreverent. A friend of a friend of a friend of a friend of a friend told me this. Hearsay and rumors from the leader of the senate?

  • werewife

    It all comes down to one thing: The evergreen Leftist suspicion that all great fortunes are stolen, not earned. That is, unless you made said pile either in entertainment or somehow came upon it in the course of “public service.” Then every penny of it is legitimately earned by the sweat of one’s brow. Yes, it’s a true ordeal getting stock tips from people whose careers you destroy with a vote, or a legislative proposal. Peter Schweizer’s new book is a must-read.

  • freeinaz

    I was told by some guy who knows a guy that told him Harry Reid is keeping his gay lover, an illegal immigrant from China, in an abandoned mine in Searchlight Nevada. Now I don’t know if this is true or not.

  • John Walstrum

    “It’s not ture. It’s not true that Harry Reid raped and killed a girl in 1990. So if you have any proof that Harry Reid raped and killed a girl in 1990, stop gossipping and go straight to the police!”
    Your father, the late Mr. Reid, must be so proud of you.

  • rbeccah

    Poor Harry. The mob guys on the Strip must be looking askance at him by now.

  • rickg62

    When do we get the investigation into Reid’s shady land deals in Nevada? I think I hear the crickets chirping again.

  • DrDean

    If I were Romney, I’d take this as good fodder for *not* releasing more tax returns. Challenge Reid to prove his assertion and let him and the ‘Reid is a low-down, lying scumbag’ issue twist in the wind, and watch as it rains crap all over the Obama campaign.


    Where does Harry Reid keep finding enough residents, (a.k.a. incompetents) in Nevada that actually agree with the verbal bile he keeps spewing, seriously speaking.
    This man sounds more and more like he might be experiencing the first symptoms of Alzheimer’s!

    • JMT Publications XXXXX

      Public sector unions have Reid bought and paid for (in other words, organized crime keeps him in office.) They helped him rig the election against Sharon Angle in 2010 and he owes them big time.

  • Chip Snow

    Not only is this man (Reid) an embarrassment to the good ol’ US of A, but he’s also embarrassing me and the rest of the LDS community. Why does Nevada keep electing this guy?

  • Swen Swenson

    LBJ told me that Harry Reid is a pig fuc**r. I don’t know if that’s true but I think he should deny it….

  • MrCrashHappy

    The fact that Harry Reid is an elected official from the state of Nevada is proof there are too many former Californians in Nevada.

  • Angelfire4280

    Pssst! Harry Reid sniffs bicycle seats! Don’t tell anyone I told you!

  • Dick Stanley

    Harry Reid is a pederast? Well, he does look awfully grumpy most of the time, and little boys notoriously are not much fun to talk to, if talking is Harry’s thing, of course.

  • Paul J. Citro

    Keep hammering Obummer on “You didn’t build that”. Reid is such a moron I can’t believe they keep voting him in.

  • $24161998

    Hey Harry, some guy told me you are a serial goat molestor…up to you to prove otherwise…

    I’m sure your Momma’ is very proud of you, Harold…

    • Finrod Felagund

      Indeed. I heard the same exact thing, from Wayne Campbell, who says he has proof.

  • teapartydoc

    Hairy Reed’s father must be proud that his son is following in his footsteps.

  • Jay Jay Jet Plane

    I like how fast they ask for documents to be released when it is about Mitt. We have been trying to see the POTUS documents for years…
