Scurrilous Harry: “It is a fact”: The highest-ranking Dem in Congress is a malicious hack

 
There’s something liberating about not caring about your reputation, your institution, or the truth.

By those standards, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is a blissfully free man.
The Nevada Democrat maintains that Mitt Romney didn’t pay taxes for ten years. Reid’s charge is an intellectual and moral mess that makes the notorious question “When did you stop beating your wife?” seem rigorous by comparison.
Reid has a super-double-secret source he says is an investor in Bain who called to tell him, “Harry, he didn’t pay any taxes for ten years.” Ordinarily, before repeating such a charge publicly, one would want a little proof, especially given that there’s no more reason that a Bain investor would be familiar with Mitt Romney’s tax returns than a Facebook investor would be familiar with Mark Zuckerberg’s returns.
Harry Reid, though, is liberated from all such mundane evidentiary standards. Not to mention logic.
