When a person places their hand on their face after witnessing something that could only be described as incredibly stupid, it’s known as a Facepalm.

When it comes to Senator Harry Reid, a Facepalm is the normal reaction for most people after listening to the words that come out of his mouth.
Case in point. According to an article on the Washington Post, Harry Reid’s latest concern isn’t for the down economy, or even the failure of Obamacare, (or the corruption investigation into his campaign funds) instead he is wasting everyone’s time by claiming that the Washington Redskins are going to change their name, it’s only a matter of when:
Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) predicted Thursday that the Redskins will change their name within three years.
Reid said he was unimpressed by the Redskins’ new charitable endeavor for Native Americans, the Washington Redskins Original Americans Foundation, which was launched earlier this week. The team announced the creation of the foundation after conducting four months of research into Native American issues and opinions, a process that included visits to 26 Indian reservations in 20 states.
The team also announced that it had distributed “over 3,000 cold-weather coats to several tribes, as well as shoes to players on boys and girls basketball teams,” and that it “assisted in the purchase of a new backhoe for the Omaha Tribe in Nebraska.”
Reid, though, called the effort “a phony deal, like everything [owner Dan Snyder has] done.”
“Dan Snyder, he’s got a great new deal,” Reid said in a phone conversation. “He’s going to throw a few blankets to the Indians and get a tax deduction for it. I can’t imagine why the man doesn’t realize that the name is going to change. It’s only a question of when it’s going to change. That’s the only question.”
