Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) is a comedian’s dream come true. Sadly, we live in an age when comedians care more about the letter prefacing a politician’s name than his or her comic net worth.
One report says Reid mentioned the Koch brothers, who legally give money to political causes they believe in, more than 140 times this year as a Senator. Wile E. Coyote was less obsessed with the Road Runner.
The Nevada Democrat’s cartoonish behavior in office finally … finally! snared the attention of our Humorist in Chief, Jon Stewart, Tuesday night.
The host of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show noticed that it’s a wee bit hypocritical for Reid to blast Republican donors like the Koch brothers while ignoring other wealthy political backers like Nevada’s own Sheldon Adelson.
So, rather than pound Fox News with another series of unfairly edited video clips, Stewart decided to speak truth to power for a change.
The one name not mentioned in Stewart’s mockery of Reid? George Soros, the billionaire who gives liberally to left of center causes.
