Skip to comments.Liar in state: Harry Reid, master of corruption, finally dead
Posted on 01/13/2022 9:11:17 PM PST by RandFan
Nobody in American history is more deserving to lie in state inside the Rotunda of the United States Capitol than former Sen. Harry Reid.
He spent every day of his 35-year political career in Washington lying. Why shouldn’t he continue to do so now that he is dead?
Big things. Little things. Irrelevant political things. Profound matters of life and death. Reid lied about everything.
In 2003, Reid was among 29 Senate Democrats to vote for the war in Iraq. Just as soon as it became politically expedient, however, Reid abandoned the troops in battle — just in time for the next election.
Is there any lie more grave than to send men to die in a war you don’t really believe in? A special valley in hell awaits such people.
But Reid didn’t just lie to send American soldiers to die for no good reason. He also lied about his political opponents.
When Republican Mitt Romney ran for president, Reid waged a crusade to smear Mr. Romney with the lie that he had not paid any taxes over the previous 10 years. He told the lie to any reporter who would listen and claimed to have “extremely credible” evidence. He even told the lie directly to the American people from the Senate floor.
Years later, when Reid was retiring and after Mr. Romney had lost, a reporter asked him about the lie.
“Well, they can call it what they want,” Reid shrugged. “Romney didn’t win, did he?”

My good buddy spotted Harry and Elvis today waiting for the bus on the Las Vegas Strip.
I get it. “Lie” in state. Even dead he still has influence in vegas.
The late great El Rushbo frequently referred to him as “Dirty Harry Reid”.
Rush was infinitely more deserving of the Rotunda...
That can’t make satan happy ... another competitor for most evil.
I never met Harry Reid or anyone that knew him, but suspect when a person becomes completely corrupt and consumed by power and greed, lying becomes second nature.
Part and parcel.
Bread and butter.
Most the pity.
I thought the Washington Times liked Harry?
Finally. Waiting for others.
Nancy Pelosi next? She’s showing signs of health issues to say the least.
I think she’s retiring next year because she’s hoping for a great send off.
Reid is like many other democRATS.
Senator Robert ‘Sheets’ Bird was a high-level KKK operative. Chuck You Schumer is another creepozoid. Honor, character, rules, laws, and regulations are for ‘others.’ RATS cannot make an honest dollar, so they have to lie and cheat their way to riches.
Reid should lie there until it stinks so bad no one can step into the building.
Fitting to remember him that way. Fitting aroma for his colleagues who wish to honor him.
I thought he died months ago...
“I thought he died months ago..”
Yes, but this will prove to be only a minor encumberence for his vote to be cast in the next several elections.
>I thought he died months ago
Finally planted him in Searchlight NV. Should have tossed him in one of the nearby abandoned mine shafts. Slimy bastard
Or left him out in the desert for the buzzards.
despicable traitorous humans, let us celebrate and hope for more
“The late great El Rushbo frequently referred to him as “Dirty Harry Reid”
I heard Rush also call him Dingy Harry
He purposely avoided calling him Dirty Harry.
