Harry the Weasel
To paraphrase an old saying, if you’re going to accuse someone else of being a weasel, it’s probably not a good idea if you’re a major weasel yourself. Senator Harry Reid called attention to himself last week, accusing Mitt Romney of not having paid taxes for 10 years. The basis of his allegations? Depending on the day of the week, it was one person: “As I said before, I was told by an extremely credible source that Romney has not paid taxes for ten years…,” or more than one: “I am not basing this on some figment of my imagination,” Reid said in a telephone call with Nevada reporters. “I have had a number of people tell me that.” Asked to elaborate, Reid declined. “No, that’s the best you’re going to get from me,” he said.
