So What Really Did Happen to Harry Reid?

It’s pretty obvious from the photographs that somebody beat the bejesus out of the soon-to-be-former senator from Nevada. And yet the national media has uncritically swallowed the cover story that “exercise equipment” was to blame for the loss of sight in the former majority leader’s right eye.

      Don’t mess with the boys from Chicago. Hey that’s Obama’s adopted home town.

    I’ve often wondered what would happen if my exercise band broke, but I didn’t expect anything this bad. His ribs were broken, too?? Wow. Maybe I should stop using it.

      You’d think the arscheloche would SUE the equipment maker, like any other tru-blue-blooded American…but hahaha, he won’t…can’t…bogus…

    In the Martin Scorsese movie Casino Reid, thinly fictionalized as Senator Harrison Roberts, was played by Dick Smothers. I don’t doubt that he is mobbed up, but there are a lot of people who’d like to punch him out. Remember, he had a previous “exercise accident” in 2011:

    Among the possible suspects, one might include his younger brother Larry, who came out the worse for wear after a DUI and subsequent fight with a police officer in February:

    Yes, imagine if he were a Republican …

      Sounds like there are some “rough” characters in his life (including his brother). If he were a Republican, the media would be all over it.

      LAS VEGAS (AP) — The 73-year-old brother of Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid was arrested Monday after he was found in a parked vehicle in the dirt median of a state highway in southern Nevada.

      A Nevada Highway Patrol officer, believing a car had broken down, found Larry Reid sitting inside the Lexus SUV shortly after noon Monday.

    One wonders about the lack of a conservative investigative reporter within Reid’s Nevada. Nevada witnessed a partial takeover of its gambling businesses, by mobsters — and one wonders about the mobster-Reid link. Yet all we have his speculation. Surely there should be some conservative-media investigation into the link. And one could go further and start looking at the links between the Chicago mob and the Obama political machine.

    One obvious point: when Harry Reid had his Democratic Senate majority, Reid played a crucial role in blacking all constructive Republican bills, not allowing them to go to the floor. Then Obama would pay off his media news cartel cronies into lying that “Republicans were blocking the workings of government”. But now, with the Democrats in the minority, Reid has no power. Hence, he is of no use to Obama. This is something to be explored.

    Finally, I used to exercise with all sorts of band equipment, and there is absolutely no way that these could cause any serious injury. Exercise bans are used mostly by women, given their safe aspects. Nearly all injuries from weight-training come from free weights. Again, one would think the pro-Obama media cartel are simply looking the other way. No sane reporter would accept this elastic-band story.
