Did President Obama Cause Spousal Abuse? Ask Harry Reid

So I finally figured out what makes Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid so intriguing: He's a big stupid-face.

Example: On Monday, during a Senate debate over the job creation package, he suggested that unemployment causes men to beat their wives:


SENATE MAJORITY LEADER HARRY REID, D-NEV.: I had met with some people while I was home dealing with domestic abuse. It has gotten out of hand. Why? Men don't have jobs. Women don't have jobs either, but women aren't abusive, most of the time. Men, when they're out of work, tend to become abusive.


What Reid seems to be saying is that the difference between a man who beats his wife and a man who doesn't is simply a paycheck; a brutal indictment implying all men are capable of abuse and only a "jobs bill" can stop them. This is a view of men that only Janeane Garofalo could love.

But Reid is from Nevada and he maintains the state's domestic crisis shelters are "jammed." If he's right, he has two people to blame: President Obama and Reid himself for voting for President Obama. After all, it's Obama who twice told people to stay out of Vegas, the equivalent of taking work out of the hands of those who live there. And because liberals always believe correlation is causation, President Obama's attacks on Vegas have no doubt lead to an up-tick in spousal abuse.

Of course, I don't really believe that. I'm just showing you where a Harry Reid opinion inevitably ends up, if you happen to believe it yourself. It's a place called Idiotland; population: idiots.

And if you disagree with me, you probably beat your spouse with a sharpened griffin rib.
