“Dirty” Harry Reid’s Insane Idea Factory

A few little items in the news recently are noted below in two cartoons. One references Harry Reid’s recent statement about the Republicans “getting favored treatment from the media.” I’m not sure he actually said such a ridiculous thing, but it certainly sounds like him. It’s off the “dumb chart” and is, in a way, worse than saying “Romney hadn’t paid taxes in ten years.” Both statements are the sort of info Harry couldn’t possibly have access to. Even if Romney had lost his mind temporarily at a Washington party and had personally whispered this in Harry’s droopy ears, Harry couldn’t possibly verify the truth of the statement. But he still passed it off as Gospel. The statement about “Turtles and Chi-Comms” could be true if Harry has entered the early stages of Alzheimer’s (strong possibility), but no one would believe his story unless they are Kool-Aidies of the card-carryin’ liberal/socialist/Nazi/Commie ideologue type. Of which there is no shortage. But the last statement about Republicans getting nice-nice treatment from the media is truly silly. But, if it were true, it would explain a lot. It tells me why the Commie/socialist/democrat/Greenie/Kool-Aidies are generally perceived as fat, cigar-chompin’ industrialists who are intent on destroying the environment, getting obscenely rich, making everyone else obscenely poor, baby-seal clubbing, whale hating, shale-frackin’ fools. They are the same guys who are avidly portrayed by the media as being wasteful of tax dollars because their main guy spends $40,000,000 of our money on vacations in five and a half years …wait a minute…no one in the mainstream media has talked about that…so I’m a little off base on that issue. Harry doesn’t comment on things involving large amounts of money. Like billion dollar deals with the Chi-Comms or when he is preparing his own tax returns.

Get your news from Harry and your head will stay screwed on tight.

Besides, if my cartoons (unintentionally) aren’t based on reality, where’s the harm?   They are cartoons and some leeway must be allowed. No one thinks they are an attempt to comment on factual stuff, do they? Do you think Wiley Coyote can really survive being squashed by a big safe which fell from a (passing airplane)? Or even several safes? Or that Harry Reid has a dead elephant hanging in his “Idea Factory?”  (Well…maybe that one is true.)

if you don’t think my cartoons are fair and that I should do more careful “fact-checking” before I attack my drawing pad, venting my frustrations, just remember…some guys are so trivial and frivolous they don’t deserve careful fact-checking. Does Harry check his facts when he attacks the Republican presidential candidate a few days before the national election? Or when he engages in some other form of pachyderm lynching or turtle rustling?

About the author

Stephen Bowers

I am an attorney in Las Vegas who has always wanted to draw political cartoons, partly because I like drawing, but mostly because I enjoy ridiculing pompous know-nothings. Verbally debating them gets nowhere. They don't know they're beaten. But poking fun at them in a drawing leaves them without recourse or rebuttal. What can they do...? Call me names, whine, cuss me ... or maybe draw a witty riposte? Unlikely.

    I think the democrats are embarrassed Harry Reid is on their side.
    Wouldn’t you be?

    • TheTexasCooke

      Which one? Name one that’s better. The Dims don’t have a party…the have a religion and Harry’s ONE of their Popes. He barely stands out from the crowd.

    • Beckah

      First of all, demoncrats can’t be embarrassed. Secondly, I think they all worship the ground he walks on. They would never bad mouth one of their own, that’s 1 thing they never do (no matter how bad they mess up)!

      • Taking care of business!

        And that’s a shame–because embarrASSED with be the perfect modifier.

  • jarhead

    Overdue at the nut house…why isn’t this idiot lib-TARD in an asylum where he belongs?

    • Taking care of business!

      Then they could bring him out for “Dancing with the Stars.” Or how about leading him around like the Frankenstein monster–“Smoke good.”

  • Taking care of business!

    Methinks Prince Harry took too many punches back when he was a prizefighter. “Yuh know. Adrian!”

  • Taking care of business!

    He gives the animals weasel and skunk a bad name. He wouldn’t give “a little-dodo ball” a bad name, though.

  • Gramma76

    Just think dirty harry will be with us until 2016! Frightening thought! dirty harry must go! One of the most corrupt politicians in DC, right up there with bozo and piglosi!!

    • patsy1715

      Not if the Repubs take back the senate.

      • Sunshine

        They will need a veto proof majority to take care of business. That includes impeaching Obama

      • TheTexasCooke

        And then what will we have? At the national level we only have one party…it just has two names….

        • DanielAllison

          At last! Someone else that sees the truth.

    • bbarnicle

      The Senate of NV can recall or impeach him before 2016. I encourage it.

  • greyhound44

    This A$$ Whole needs a large caliber bullet in his ear!!!

    If you wish to know one of the many factors contributing to the reelection of this corrupt, senile, and demented old man from searchlight, nevada, the following statement by a nevada establishment RINO republican at the website “republicansforharryreid(dot)com” will enlighten you:

    “”Nevada needs to understand at this perilous time in our state’s history, why would your ever think about getting rid of the majority leader of the U.S. Senate?” – Sig Rogich appearing on “Face to Face with Jon Ralston”. Sig Rogich is a member of Republicans for Reid.”

    If you follow the link above to the still active website, click on the members tab where you can view a partial list of the 400+ RINO’s who threw a collective temper tantrum when their fair-haired girl, the squishy RINO Sue Lowden lost the primary in 2010 to Sharron Angle. So turning traitor to their own party, they threw their financial and vocal support to the successful reelection effort of the slimy corrupt politician, harry “pinky” reid, all at great cost to nevada and America.

  • AnnaGraceS

    dirty harry should be the poster child for birth control… he is a sissy voiced weasel at best!!

  • 2War Abn Vet

    I don’t think many people will fall for the line that Republicans get favored treatment from the media. Some 93% of those in the media self-identify as liberal. By doing so it means that there is absolutely nothing “liberal” about them. It means they support the Leftist’Socialist goals of the Democrat Party.

  • Progressive Republican

    Not a lot of time so I’ll just hit a few things:

    So far as the Rethuglicons getting favored treatment from the corporate media goes…duh. No [poo] Sherlock. Only an idiot or a liar would dispute something so clearly obvious.

    The over-inflated vacation-cost estimate?

    Aw, is that too much money squandered for you widdle boy? Howzabout the over eighty million squandered by the House’s ridiculously pointless “repeals” of the healthcare act Rethuglicons brought to the friggin’ table?

    And so far as the hanging elephant goes, one can only hope he hanged himself for the good of America. It would be the first thing the GOP has done for the country instead of, as usual, to it.

    Oh, one more thing: It’s “Wile E. Coyote”.

    Not only a liar, but an idiot as well.

    And on a discredited FRWNJ disinformation propaganda site too. What are the odds?

  • bbarnicle

    I think at one point the German people were embaressed by Hitler…but who was to say anything?

  • ABBAsFernando

    Reid just has to be a COMMUNIST AGENT.

  • curmudgeon VN Veteran

    I realize that Reid is one of the more disgusting pieces of turd the democRATs have gifted us with, but doesn’t he seem to be exhibiting many of the signs of Dementia or even Alzheimer’s? No sane person would be making some of the bazaar claims and statements that he has been constantly spewing.

    He and Pelousi both have lived too long to build up that kind of venom for all who disagree with their extreme leftist views. Not just partisan, but at least borderline insane!
