Reid: I saved the world from a great depression

Throughout his debate with Republican Sharron Angle, Harry Reid’s contempt for her showed in every facial expression he made and in his tone of voice with every word he said. How could he be losing to this idiot?

The former boxer entered these last two weeks of the campaign looking like the prize fighter who can’t understand why his opponent wasn’t knocked out several rounds ago.

His frustration manifests itself in new gaffes. And here’s the newest one, from the Ed Show today:

“But for me, we’d be in a worldwide depression.” Problem is, if you live in Nevada, you probably feel like you are in the middle of a worldwide depression.

As John McCain learned the hard way in 2008, there is no better way to give people the idea that you’re out of touch than to say the economy is doing well when most people feel like it isn’t. And in Nevada, where unemployment is 14.4 percent, it really isn’t.
