Harry Reid Has a Different Pet Already

A while back, Harry Reid referred to Chris Coons as “my pet,” but since then Harry seems to want to do his petting elsewhere:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid had an unusual form of praise for New York’s junior senator, Kirsten Gillibrand, this morning at the fundraiser Mayor Bloomberg hosted for him at his townhouse – referring to her as “the hottest member” as she sat just a few feet away, according to three sources.

The comment prompted Gillibrand to turn red, according to the sources, and created a bit of stir among the small crowd there.

“It was pretty shocking when he said it,” said one source familiar with the remark and the reaction.

A Reid spokesman confirmed it happened, but also noted that the Democratic Majority Leader also praised Gillibrand for her work.
Then he turned his attention to Gillibrand, saying something about how “many senators are known for many things,” according to a source. He added, “We in the Senate refer to Sen. Gillibrand as the hottest member.”

Sorry, Scott Brown.

Reid then tried to kick-save his own patronizing chauvinistic sexual slapshot by changing the subject to Gillibrand’s deep knowledge of securities law, and pointing out that she has a firm but gentle grip on policy, as well as a perky, pert set of political principles that makes this Majority Leader wanna stand up and beg for buttermilk! (I don’t think Harry said that last part out loud though)

Somebody needs to dump some saltpeter in the public trough.
