He had a fundraiser in New Orleans that he rather badly needed to do, and never mind the rhetoric on how important it is to pass health care rationing.
The GOP mocked him, as was only fitting. The GOP is, in fact, using it as local campaign fodder; and so Senator Reid doesn't get to go to New Orleans. He's quite upset about it, too*: it's unclear to whether it's from being done unto as he has done, or simply because Reid needs all the help that he can get.
*I don't know: is he about to cry? I think that Reid looks likes he's about to cry.
