Reid, al­lies epit­o­mize Adams’ quote

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters -

Se­nate Ma­jor­ity Leader Harry Reid, the sec­ond-most pow­er­ful Demo­crat in our fair land, has a ten­u­ous re­la­tion­ship with the truth.

His se­rial false­hoods, of­ten is­sued from the well of the world’s great­est de­lib­er­a­tive body, amaze even me, an old cur­mud­geon who de­faults to cyn­i­cism as fre­quently as I draw breath.

Al­most as dis­con­cert­ing as Mr. Reid’s fevered imag­i­na­tion and con­science­less bab­ble is the ab­sence of any crit­i­cism from his bud­dies in the Demo­cratic Party. Their si­lence puts me in mind of an ob­ser­va­tion by John Adams, our sec­ond pres­i­dent: “In my many years, I have come to a con­clu­sion that one use­less man is a shame, two is a law firm, and three or more is a Congress.” PAUL BLOUSTEIN Cincin­nati
