It makes me happy.
A second source, said to be “close to Senator [Harry] Reid,” has told CNN’s Dana Bash that Reid’s original source for the claim that Mitt Romney “didn’t pay any taxes for 10 years” exists, is a “Bain investor” and a “credible person.” Dana Bash reported on this source, and the person’s willingness to corroborate the allegation to which the Senate majority leader repeated on Thursday’s airing of CNN’s AC360.
As Bash told the show’s host, Anderson Cooper:
“I did speak to one source who is very close to Senator Reid who claims to also know who the Bain investor is that Reid spoke with, and insists that it is a credible person and this person if we knew the name we would understand they would have the authority and the ability to know about Romney’s tax returns.”
This is terrific. You People can’t get any closer to Mitt Romney than you can the Reverend Moon at a human sacrifice. He’s secretive, armor-plated and remote. You’re more likely to see a photo of the braided hair on Osama Bin Laden’s balls than any one of Romney’s tax returns. That’s why I enjoy this. Harry Reid is making the mysterious presidential candidate squirm over his own squirming paranoia. It’s nitro-irony.
“By the way Harry, I understand what you are trying to do here,” Mr. Romney said. “You are trying to deflect the fact that jobs numbers are bad, that Americans are out of work, and you’re trying to throw anything up on the screen that will grab attention away from the fact that the policies of the White House haven’t worked to put Americans to work, and the policies of the Senate haven’t even got a budget in place.”
“Now let me also say categorically: I have paid taxes every year, and a lot of taxes, a lot of taxes,” Mr. Romney added. “So Harry is simply wrong, and that’s why I’m so anxious for him to give us the names of the people who have put this forward.”
So you can release your bug-eyed jerks on someone and ruin his life? I’m sure Harry will oblige you real soon. You’ll also be releasing those normal average tax documents momentarily, and Harry’s partisan lying will blow up for everyone to see. Any minute now. Because you’re one brave sonuvabitch.
