Irate Harry Reid Waves Astroturf & Attacks Taxpayers at Press Briefing
“We’ve all heard by now the response of Republicans to what we’re trying to do here on healthcare: yelling, kicking, screaming, interrupting meetings. You’ve read about their AstroTurf campaign. They want to convince people they’re grassroots, and they’re not. It’s as phony as this is grass.“
Majority Leader Harry Reid
Waving Astroturf at Press Briefing
August 6, 2009
The Democrats continue their attacks on taxpayers today.
Harry B*tch Reid waved astroturf at reporters today claiming that American taxpayers protesting the government takeover of health care were being paid by insurance companies.
The Politico reported:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid launched his harshest attack on the Republican Party in months, claiming the GOP is “being run by a talk show host.”
Reid, armed with a patch of Astroturf, slammed Republicans for sponsoring town hall attacks on Democrats and accused the party of waging a barricade on Democratic efforts to pass health care reform legislation.
“I just want to show you what Astroturf really is,” Reid said to laughter. “They’re taking their cues from talk show hosts, Internet rumor mongers, and insurance rackets.”
“I just think, as I’ve said before, it’s not often that you try to blow yourself up, but that’s obviously what they’re trying to do with all this vexatious stuff they’re doing with these meetings, the birthers. It’s a party being run by a talk show host,” Reid said.
Oh, please let there be video of this!
