Political Dinosaur Harry Reid Announces Exit From Politics

21st Century Wire says…

One of Washington DC’s oldest political dinosaurs is finally being sent out to pasture. 

Nevada’s notorious Senator Harry Reid has announced his coming retirement from politics. 

21WIRE reported on last year’s federal stand-off at the Bundy Ranch in Bunkerville, Nevada – an incident which Harry Reid inserted himself into by declaring local cattle rancher Cliven Bundy and his thousands of supporters as “domestic terrorists” because they would not accept the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) theft of livestock and the federal paramilitary takeover of the land surrounding their ranch.

“Those people who hold themselves out to be patriots are not. They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists,” Senator Reid told the Las Vegas Review Journal. “… I repeat: What went on up there was domestic terrorism.”

Speculation is rife as to what has prompted Reid to call it quits so suddenly. A Democratic Party stalwart, Reid has his share of detractors, and as a former Gaming Commissioner in Nevada, Reid certainly was at the center of the ‘action’ – rubbing elbows and greasing the skids of commerce in a mafia haven like Vegas. Biz Pac Review believes it might have something to do with the recent Visas Scandal, stating:

Reports surfaced this week that the deputy secretary of the Department of Homeland Security pushed through visas for foreigners investing in a Las Vegas casino project at the behest of Reid whose son, Rory, was the lawyer on the project.”

He’s been a little worse for wear lately. It’s still a mystery how he recently acquired his black eye and broken ribs over New Years Eve (“I fell”).

Meanwhile, the compliments just keep on coming….

Nevada Senator Harry Reid announced early Friday that he will retire at the end of his term.

The Senate Minority Leader said in a video message and press release that he will not seek re-election next year.

“I want to be able to go out at the top of my game,” he said. “I don’t want to be a 42-year-old trying to become a designated hitter.

If the Twitterverse is any indication he won’t be missed by many…
