"Harry Reid is a worm"

Today Rich Galen is on fire with his column which is "right on":

"The other day Democratic Senate Majority Leader said the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Marine Corps General was "incompetent" and, according, he "made similar disparaging remarks about Army Gen. David Petraeus, the top U.S. commander in Iraq."

Ok. Harry Reid is a worm. We know that. He once told a group of high school students in Nevada that President Bush was "a loser." And just a couple of weeks ago he proclaimed the war in Iraq to be "lost." ....

If you are looking for a true political leader, you can just pass right over Harry Reid. He is perfectly willing to give aid and comfort to the enemy - likely putting American soldiers at greater risk by his comments - for political gain....

Last week the Senate made a big deal about trying to bring a vote of "no confidence" against Attorney General Alberto Gonzales to the floor - at which Reid also failed, by the way.

Republicans should attempt to bring a similar vote against the Democratic Majority Leader - no confidence in a man who would put politics ahead of national security."
