This opening paragraph of a Politico story about Harry Reid’s career possibly ending tomorrow speaks volumes:
RENO, Nev. – If Harry Reid loses this election, it will be a crushing end to a storied political career. The majority leader of the United States Senate will have been defeated after four terms by an opponent he doesn’t respect or even take seriously. He will be the victim, in his view, of an electorate gone mad, taken down in his prime after rising higher than anyone from his state ever has.
Reid, as with most Democrats, can’t bring himself to think maybe he’s done something wrong. No, it’s us to blame. We just don’t get it.
