While Team Rove and Team Palin butt heads on how the Republican party should handle Christine O’Donnell, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid offered his thoughts on her opponent, Chris Coons: “He’s my pet.”
The senator from Nevada added, “He’s my favorite.”
Sen. Reid, evidently unable to contain his enthusiasm, then rattled off the reasons he’s so into Delaware’s Democratic candidate for Senate:
Let me tell you about him: A graduate of Yale Divinity School. Yale Law School. A two-time national debate champion. He represents two-thirds of the state now, in an elected capacity. I don’t know if you’ve ever seen him or heard him speak, but he is a dynamic speaker. I don’t mean loud or long; he’s a communicator.
Reid continued in this manner for some time, before giddily concluding:
I just think the world of him. He’s my pet.
The media have yet to confirm whether or not Senator Reid has carved “HR <3 CC" into any D.C.-area trees.
