Nothing to Lose

So, why has Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid not only made, but even doubled down on his unsubstantiated allegation that Mitt Romney has failed to pay taxes at all for the past ten years?

You'll find the answer in POLITICO of all places:  Because even if the charge is not true, no, make that especially if it's not true, it will cost him absolutely nothing.  Sure, for a little while, a few not too prominent Democrats will huff and puff, sotto voce, of course.  But even POLITICO reports the story with more amazement than disgust.  All you need to remember is that we're talking about the party of Bill Clinton after all, not to mention the legion of liberal apologists and enablers both in and out of the elite media.

Of one thing you can be sure, however.  Were Reid a Republican, there would be no end to the rending of garments and gnashing of teeth.  Also, he would already be the former Majority Leader and soon to be former senator as well.  Such are the differences between to the two parties and the people who comprise them.  (There!  I said it.)
