Dec 16th, 2010

We are calling it here at The Hand. Harry Reid has pulled the Omnibus Spending Bill. 

It is now clear that it would have been better had Sharron Angle WON; It is always better to have an enemy you can exploit than an utterly worthless friend. We will be bringing as much analysis as possible tomorrow. 

Be sure, though... this is a disaster on so many levels it's impossible to quantify yet.

"Faced with the prospects of having to literally read the full 1924 pages of an omnibus spending bill, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) chose on Thursday night to pull the measure in favor of a continuing resolution to keep government funding.
Republicans, presented with the news, could barely hide their glee. "Did we just win?" asked newly elected Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), a rhetorical question that seemed to engender sharp rebukes from Democrats."

  1. You have to quantify "disaster," if you headline it.

    IF he has pulled it, this might be seen as an ingenious move to keep the Republicans IN TOWN to do their jobs during the last days of the month, instead of running off like school boys to loaf as their constituents slave away in Pottersville.
