Wiener of the Month - February

By rights, the WotM should be ME, for realizing more than a week into March that I hadn't done a WotM for February. But me pillorying me would be about as interesting as a Rosie O'Donnell after-school special.

No, I've got bigger fish to fry. And, speaking of "fish", it's that pompous-ass fish faced phony Harry Reid who is on my hook today.

First, there was the little matter of the "Obama" stimulus bill, which consisted of His Royal Holiness throwing a command over the wall to Congress to present him with a bill. Oh, they sent him the bill, all right. Harry and Little Nancy (Pelosi) saw to it that every Congressman and Senator had his or her slab of pork delivered up and made to order. They essentially strong-armed the President and had their way with him.

But, more recently, there was this.

The Senate's top Democrat is proposing special power lines to carry renewable energy — like solar and wind power — from remote places.

The Federal government would be able to override states and direct where the lines would go and who would pay for them.
Wait? Did I read that correctly? The Federal government would be able to override states? Would direct where the lines would go? Would dictate who would pay for them?!?!? Where I come from, that's called Dictatorship. But that's Harry. Apparently he's in charge now.

Harry Reid, you're the Wiener of the Month.
