Republican Senator: Harry Reid is an “Absolute @sshole”

Republican Senator: Harry Reid is an “Absolute @sshole”

It may not be polite, but it is true.

Tom Coburn

But beyond his reputation for calumny and callousness, Senator Harry Reid is apparently not a very nice person to work with, either. Here’s what Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) said about him at a Republican gala this past week (via Ed Morrissey):

Coburn spoke at a gala for the New York Young Republican Club – where Republican mayoral candidate Joe Lhota also appeared. …
For his part, Coburn had some choice words for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

In response to a question about civility in the Senate, Coburn said it’s easier to forge cross-party ties with some Democrats than others.

“I have great relationships with Chuck Schumer. I don’t say that in Oklahoma,” he said, naming other Democrats he gets along with – and one he definitely doesn’t.

“There’s no comity with Harry Reid. I think he’s an absolute a–hole,” he said.

Come on, Tom Coburn! Who could believe that a politician who said that Capitol Hill tourists smell bad and noted that he didn’t care if kids with cancer got treated is actually a bad guy….wait, actually that makes perfect sense.
