Vote for him or the wife gets it!

Yesterday Politico reported that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid pushed for a $15 billion jobs bill Monday by suggesting that unemployed men are more likely to abuse their wives:

“Men when they’re out of work tend to become abusive,” Reid said as he argued in favor of a cloture vote on the jobs bill. “I 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. Our domestic crisis shelters in Nevada are jammed.”

Standing for reelection this fall, Reid of course faces the prospect of joblessness himself. Now comes R.H. Potfry to report that Reid has launched a bold new “Vote For Me Or The Wife Gets It” effort to try and save his flagging campaign.
