Harry Reid has gotten rich during his career as a selfless public servant. But on Friday, still sporting a symbolically battered face but defiantly wearing a “Don’t Treadmill on Me” t-shirt, the Searchlight Slanderer announced his intention to go to the private sector where there are fewer questions about Bob Menendez.

From the NYT:

Senator Harry Reid, the tough tactician who has led Senate Democrats since 2005, will not seek re-election next year, bringing an end to a three-decade congressional career that culminated with his push of President Obama’s ambitious agenda against fierce Republican resistance.

While not totally unexpected, his decision to forgo what would have been a difficult race still shook the Capitol on Friday and represented the first major transition in the Democratic leadership of the Senate or House in years. He endorsed Senator Charles E. Schumer of New York to succeed him in 2017.

This story wouldn’t be complete without a “Koch brothers” grand finale from Reid:

If anybody wants to buy Reid a retirement gift, I’ve registered him at Straight Jackets N’ More.
