Damn You, Harry Reid...

(Also at Daily Kos)

For ruining my "mini staycation" with family. Just as I was enjoying a lovely day with the loved ones on the always fabulously sinful Las Vegas Strip, you had to open your mouth and say this crap about not wanting an Islamic cultural center in Lower Manhattan. Seriously, Mr. Leader, WHAT. THE. FUCK??!!

First off, this is happening in New York City. Last I checked, this is nowhere near our fine State of Nevada. What right do we have telling New Yorkers what to do in their city?

Secondly, speaking of rights, we're intruding on other people's constitutional rights and religious freedom by intimidating them out of doing something that's perfectly legal and totally harmless. Come on, how are we in Las Vegas affected by an Islamic cultural center in Manhattan? However, our bone-headed insensitivity and irrational fear has caused many Muslim New Yorkers a whole lot of pain and heartburn that they really did not deserve.

Look, Harry, I'm not abandoning you. The fact of the matter is that I can't. Sharron Angle scares the living daylights out of me. She doesn't believe I and other queer folk should be able to exist as human beings. She wants our fine state to become a massive radioactive garbage disposal. She doesn't believe we Nevadans deserve jobs if they happen to be in renewable energy or hospitality or anything else that doesn't fit in her radical right ideology. Scary Sharry is just plain batshit crazy, so I really have no choice but to support you and all the good you're doing for Nevada and America.

So I forgive you... But I can't forget, not just yet. What you did today was really beneath you. I know you're better than this. I know deep down you're a good person, and you don't want to slander Muslim Americans. This was just a calculated political move, but nonetheless a calculated political move that is morally wrong and Constitutionally inadvisable.

Don't do this again... And please get back to serving ALL the people of this great State of Nevada.

Now if you could please excuse me, I'd like to get back to my quality family time tonight.


  1. I support building this and also support how a Fox News host wants to open a gay bar next to it.

    I think we should have a nice, classy gay bar next to one of the megachurches out in the bland HOAville area of Vegas.

  2. Joe Scarborough just summed this up:

    "Harry Reid decided that because he's in a Nevada Senate race, he should comment on this happening thousands of miles away."
