Creepiness, thy name is Harry Reid.

“I’m going to be very honest with you — Chris Coons, everybody knows him in the Democratic caucus. He’s my pet. He’s my favorite candidate,” Reid said.

“Let me tell you about him: A graduate of Yale Divinity School. Yale Law School. A two-time national debate champion. He represents two-thirds of the state now, in an elected capacity. I don’t know if you’ve ever seen him or heard him speak, but he is a dynamic speaker. I don’t mean loud or long; he’s a communicator. So that’s how I feel about Delaware. I’ve always thought Chris Coons is going to win. I told him that and I tried to get him to run. I’m glad he’s running. I just think the world of him. He’s my pet.”

I’ve heard politicians called a lot of things, but this…well, I’ve never heard anything quite like it. I know I’m letting down the conservative blogosphere by not having a good snarky comment or a clever photoshop at the ready, but I’m honestly flummoxed. What grown man calls another grown man his “pet” outside of a romantic relationship? And what human being who has spent more than a few seconds around politics thinks that calling another politician his “pet” is actually a complement?

This story is just bizarre. It’s time for Harry Reid and his lapdog Chris Coons to get some alone time far from public office. Harry is long past his expiration date and Coons obviously doesn’t have the kind of independent streak the voters of his state deserve.
