Harry Reid, Senate BROjority Leader
Thanks to Gawker‘s tyrannical hold over my work day, this little gem featuring Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid just came about my desk. Check it out, bro:
For those of you who never thought they’d live to see the day when Harry Reid used the word “bro”, you can now go kill yourself. Not just because that was painful to watch, but because someone clearly scripted that line for Harry Reid. And the fact that someone as part of their job wrote this line for Harry Reid points us to one inescapable conclusion: someone is trying to coach Mormon politicians to be hip.
Think about it, Mormon’s and their deeply unhip religious views have never been more high profile. To even begin to compete for the attention of today’s youth, there must be some guy out there who is at this very moment lecturing a group of anti-choice activists about the stars of the movie Twilight. Plus, you know that in one of his briefings someone has to be updating Mitt Romney about all the pop-cultural events since he last was aware of a fad (someone find that video of Mitt doing the Macarena STAT).
How far is Reid is gonna go with this? How much deeply-practiced “cool” can he sustain? All I’m saying is that I’m not sure you can get into Mormon heaven in skinny jeans…
