Apparently the Democratic Party is going all out to defend Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. No smear to nasty or fantastical, no standard too doubled.
I think that’s fine. Not only does it show the true nature of the MAL but it’s good for the GOP in a tactical sense for the same reason that Senator Chris Dodd’s retirement was not. The situations aren’t completely equivalent as Dodd was replaced by another politician who is very popular in the state. As far as I can tell there’s no one like that in Nevada with which to replace Reid. But even an unknown would probably do better than Reid will.
