Flaming Underwear Award -- G&S Editorial Board Decides: It's Harry Reid

It's been a very long time since the G&S Editorial Board has been able to set its pants on fire at the prospect of a particular candidate for public office actually getting elected.  And it's going to be longer still.  But, in the meantime, we are prepared to name the candidate whose defeat will cause our boxers to ignite:  Harry Reid.

It's not just the annoying voice, or the fact that he's the most mindlessly partisan member of the United States Senate.  It's not just that he lectures us like some particularly self-absorbed Presbyterian, while representing a state that wouldn't even rate an exit on I-80 if Bugsy Siegel hadn't invented Las Vegas.

Nope.  That's not it; it's that in a nation where most politicians treat the voters as if they were stupid, Harry treats the rest of us with such utter contempt that he must have convinced himself that we all have some diagnosable mental disability.

So here's to you Harry Reid; the man who saved the world, and became a millionaire on a government salary. On election day, after the polls close in Nevada, we hope to be able to raise a glass.  Oh!  It's going to be so sweet.
