The schadenfreude of the week:

null

They had me at “Harry Reid’s exit interview”:

Outgoing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid blasted Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell, his soon-to-be successor, and other Republicans, vowing Democrats will wage “a new battle” with the GOP when the Senate reconvenes on Jan. 6.

“Is there enough they can do to help Wall Street? I don’t think so. Big banks? I don’t think so,” Reid told the New York Times in an exit interview published Wednesday. “That’s where the new battle is going to be.”

The 75-year-old Nevada Democrat said Republicans are at odds with Americans when it comes to environmental protection laws.

“They want to eviscerate Clean Air, Clean Water, EPA,” Reid said.
[…]
Reid said he plans to run for reelection in 2016, when some of his Senate colleagues — including Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio — may be running for the Republican presidential nomination.

When asked by the Times whether any of them could become president, Reid replied: “Of what?”

Have a seat, Harry, you got stomped.

This was the best part:

“I’m happy to work with them,” Reid said of his GOP counterparts. “But I’m not going to throw middle-class America overboard.”

Reid doesn’t have to throw middle-class America overboard — he already did it. At this point it’s a rescue mission for others to lead. But don’t listen to me, take it from the current president of the Senate:
