May 1: Obama calls for more civility in politics.

May 5: Reid: Republicans ‘making love’ to Wall Street.

"The Republicans are having difficulty determining how they're going to continue making love to Wall Street," Reid said.

Reid is known for making harsh comments – like saying President Bush is a “loser” and declaring that the war in Iraq was “lost” – but his spokesman did not back down from this moment of senatorial color.

Jim Manley, Reid's spokesman, took the description one step further.

"What can I say? It's true," Manley said. "Republicans are making love to Wall Street while main street is getting screwed.”

Oh dear. How incivil of the Majority Leader. Hypocritical, too.
