Thoughts from a Yellow Dog Democrat living in Olympia, in the great BLUE state of Washington

I am a liberal because it is the political philosophy of freedom and equality. And I am a progressive because it is the political path to a better future. And I am a Democrat because it is the political party that believes in freedom, equality and progress. -- Digby

Harry Reid Should Shut Up

From Politico:
The Majority Leader thinks former Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens shouldn't face jail time for his seven-count federal conviction last year, telling our Manu Raju, who was also in the room, "My personal feeling, you guys, I don't know what good that [would do]... He was a real war hero too, you know. He's been punished enough."

Members of Congress, he added, had long been used to not disclosing gifts until the rules had been tightened. And he said the 85-year-old Stevens simply did not adapt to those changing rules.

"It's a different world we live in, and Stevens did not understand that," Reid said.

What kind of entitled class are these Senators? Harry Reid obviously has no respect for the laws. I guess laws and ethics are only for us little people not for those privileged few who live in the ivory tower of the Senate. Shut up, Harry. You are an embarrassment.
