Tagging DE’s Chris Coons as a "Harry Reid Democrat"

It certainly won’t be hard to do, thanks to the politically astute Harry Reid (via Wizbang):

"I’m going to be very honest with you — Chris Coons, everybody knows him in the Democratic caucus. He’s my pet. He’s my favorite candidate," Reid said.

"Let me tell you about him: A graduate of Yale Divinity School. Yale Law School. A two-time national debate champion. He represents two-thirds of the state now, in an elected capacity. I don’t know if you’ve ever seen him or heard him speak, but he is a dynamic speaker. I don’t mean loud or long; he’s a communicator. So that’s how I feel about Delaware. I’ve always thought Chris Coons is going to win. I told him that and I tried to get him to run. I’m glad he’s running. I just think the world of him. He’s my pet."

If you’re in DE and don’t have a reason to vote for O’Donnell yet, but you’re dissatisfied with the track the country’s on as is over 60% of the country, then perhaps this acknowledgement that Harry’s “pet” will reliably vote for whatever Harry wants in the Senate (assuming Reid is successful in retaining his seat) should provide one.  Lapdogs for unpopular political leaders pushing unpopular agendas are always people you want in high places (talk about a tone deaf “endorsement”. It should be worth at least a minus 5% for Coons.). 

So, if you want amnesty, cap and trade, even more taxation, higher spending, a bigger deficit and more government, vote for Harry’s “pet.”

  • buenas dias senor bruce!
    your premise is all wrong again.  *harry* is the pet.  and the democratic party owns harry.  they’re  akin to a hippie commune, all disorganized, arguing over who ate the last granola bar, and having their mellow harshed by that mary from louisiana who’s not pulling her weight.   but it’s not all bad, at least they neutered harry so he can’t breed anymore.   cat people see the analogy right away,  takes dog people a little longer to flip the image over.
    but to be serious for just a second, do these endorsements carry any weight at all?  does someone from delaware care what some milquetoast from the other side of the country thinks, i suspect half the voters don’t have a clue who harry reid is.  (they’ll be the ones who smile a tad more often. ignorance IS bliss.  and yes, pedro always wears a muy grande idiotic grin on his mug)

    • It’s not the “endorsement” but rather the “endorsement”.
      Truthfully, endorsements are like the Jedi Mind Trick, they only work on the “weak minded.”
      The more important “endorsement” is the one that no body wants, like from Serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer.
      Harry Reid has given Chris Coons such a “kiss of death.”

    • do these endorsements carry any weight at all?

      I would guess that it depends on who is making it.  If we consider it outside of the context, you’d figure that an endorsement from a national party leader is a good thing.  But Reid isn’t popular these days (as far as I am aware) and an endorsement along the lines of “vote for Candidate X, he’s totally my b*tch” probably isn’t what Coons would have hoped for.  Then again, is anyone surprised that a congressman would be that tone deaf?

    • “do these endorsements carry any weight at all? ”

      Palin’s do.

  • People who run PR campaigns…which includes all trial lawyers…LIVE for a statement as tone-deaf as Harry Reid’s.
    Could the man have said anything more stupid?

  • Isn’t this Coons guy called a “bearded marxist”?

    If the people of DE pick a marxist over a conservative, they deserve what they get

    • Actually, shark, I think he called himself that.  He reported that his trip to Kenya as an undergrad changed him.  He was an unthinking Republican.  Now he’s an unthinking Collectivist.  “Change That Matters”.
