"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.
