This just in: Harry Reid is an idiot

Via David Freddoso, we read in wonder as the Majority Leader of the United States Senate has an out-of-reality experience of almost Biden-esque proportions:

In a recent Senate floor speech, Democratic Leader Harry Reid likened Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan to another woman who sat on the court, Sandra Day O’Connor.

“One of my favorite Supreme Court Justices in recent years has been Sandra Day O’Connor, not because she’s a Republican, but because she was a good judge. I think one reason she was a good judge is she had no judicial experience,” Reid said on May 11, 2010.

Um, not quite, Pinky. From the same article:

In 1975, O’Connor was elected a judge of the Maricopa County Superior Court, where she served until 1979, when she was appointed to the Arizona Court of Appeals, according to her biography on the U.S. Supreme Court Web site. In 1981, President Ronald Reagan nominated O’Connor to be an associate justice of the Supreme Court.

Want to try again, Harry?

Dear Nevada, do the nation a favor and elect this woman.

        They both knew their choice was a good person ;-)

        But if you look at their backgrounds, there is a range of eerie similarities.
