Harry Reed hopes for a third party rescue

Fat chance Harry

Harry is desperate;

Facing dismal poll numbers in his home state, Nevada Sen. Harry Reid has devised a re-election strategy: welcome third party candidates who can split the opposition in the uphill battle to hold on to his U.S. Senate seat.

The Nevada Democrat and Senate majority leader filed to run for election to a fifth term on Monday, and said he embraces independent contenders in the race.

Recall several weeks ago Dems were pinning their hopes on splitting the GOP from the Teaparty movement. Suddenly, magically, there was a third party registered in Nevada. To me, this morphing of the movement into an actual political party represents nothing less than an infection of the left which has to be cured by any means possible.

Actually till now I figured the good people in Nevada had pretty much turned their backs on that third party idea. I still think any real Teaparty group will reject this bunch as being most likely a left-backed fake.

I wouldn’t be surprised to see some Soros money headed their way soon to start really pushing this crap, it’s really the only hope Dirty Harry has.
