Senate majority leader Harry Reid has taken time away from the rigors of not passing a budget and calling Mitt Romney a tax cheat to comment on the uniforms of the United States Olympic team.

If the senator had his druthers, “they should take all the uniforms, put them in a big pile and burn them and start all over again.” 

The uniforms were designed by Ralph Lauren and made in China.  Except for the ties and shoes, which come from Italy.

The House minority leader, Nancy Pelosi, doesn't like the uniforms, either. Nor does Speaker Boehner.  

So, is foolishness okay so long as it is bipartisan?
