Headline of the Week

From the Washington Examiner: "Harry Reid carrying Wall Street's love child".
If Republicans are "making love to Wall Street," as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., puts it, one wonders if there's a printable description for Reid's torrid affair with the financial sector...

Reid has raised more money from Wall Street than any Republican House or Senate candidate, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. In fact, among senators seeking re-election, Reid has raised more than the top three Republicans combined. As far as the parties go, it's not even close -- Wall Street has given 60 percent of its cash this year to Democrats, and seven of the top 10 recipients of Wall Street political action committee money are Democrats.
Which gives the lie both to Harry Reid, and to the left's claims that Big Business is the natural ally of the Republican Party.

Update - Haw! From Jeff S. in the comments: "Somehow, I doubt that Reid knows who the father is."

Big govt, big business, and big unions all work quite well together, as mutually supporting. I think it was the basis of Mussolini's system.

Exactly right; all of them ganging up on the individual taxpayer. It is the essence of what I believe is called "corporatism".

Sixty percent and seven out of ten. You reap what you sow.

It would be a symbiotic relationship if they weren't so similar. Time to revive the "octopus" analogy.
