Reid: GOP like the Jets w/no clear leader; and the Post, NYT sports sections suck

Or words to that effect.

Classic Senate floor speech from Mr. Extemporaneous this morning.

Here's a rush transcript:

 

MR. REID: RESERVING THE RIGHT TO OBJECT. I'M SORRY. RESERVING

           THE RIGHT TO OBJECT, MR. PRESIDENT. I'VE BEEN THINKING HOW BEST

           TO DESCRIBE WHAT'S GOING ON HERE ON CAPITOL HILL IN THE LAST

           COUPLE OF WEEKS. EVERY MORNING I GET UP, THE FIRST THING I READ

           IS THE SPORTS PAGE. I'M DISAPPOINTED IN THE SPORTS PAGE IN "THE

           WASHINGTON POST" IS NOT NEARLY AS GOOD AS IT USED TO BE AND

           "THE NEW YORK TIMES" IS NOT GOOD EITHER. BUT I READ THEM.

           THERE'S ALWAYS SOME GOOD NEWS ON THE SPORTS PAGE. THEN I GO TO

           THE FRONT PAGE AND GET SOME OF THE BAD NEWS. BUT I FOLLOW

           SPORTS, NO MATTER

           WHAT IT IS: BASKETBALL, FOOTBALL, BASEBALL. WHATEVER IT IS. AND

           I'VE WATCHED VERY CLOSELY. IT'S NOT ONE OF MY FAVORITE TEAMS

           BUT IT'S REALLY FUN TO WATCH, AND THAT'S THE NEW YORK JETS. NEW

           YORK JETS, YES. NEW YORK JETS. COACH RYAN, HE'S GOT A PROBLEM.

           HE HAS THREE QUARTERBACKS. SANCHEZ. HE'S GOT TIM TEBOW. HE'S

           GOT A GUY NAMED McELROY. HE CAN'T DECIDE WHO THEIR QUARTERBACK

[ram]{09:48:31} (MR. REID) { NOT AN OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPT }

           IS GOING TO BE. THAT'S THE SAME PROBLEM THE REPUBLICANS HAVE.

           WHO IS THE QUARTERBACK, MR. PRESIDENT?

           WHO IS THE QUARTERBACK?
