So, Harry Reid had One. Job. at the Nevada Asian Chamber of Commerce.

Did it happen?


The Asian Chamber of Commerce on Thursday endorsed Republican Mark Hutchison for lieutenant governor, spurning U.S. Sen. Harry Reid’s Democratic choice, Lucy Flores, after the senator spoke to the group and praised it as a “significant part of what Nevada is all about.”


Reid left the luncheon after his speech and missed the formal endorsement announcements. But organizers had placed before each diner a one-page list of the chosen candidates with their photos included. Flores had RSVP’d for the event the day before, according to the chamber, but was a no-show Thursday.

But… why? Besides the fact that Flores skipped it entirely and Reid bailed early, of course.  It’s a mystery

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid drew laughter from an Asian audience Thursday with a pair of Asian-themed jokes.

“I don’t think you’re smarter than anybody else, but you’ve convinced a lot of us you are,” Reid, a Nevada Democrat, told the guffawing crowd at the Las Vegas Asian Chamber of Commerce. Video of the remarks was recorded by the Republican opposition research group American Rising.

Later, before walking off stage, Reid quipped: “One problem that I’ve had today is keeping my Wongs straight.”

…a complete mystery.

  1. Eh, you say traumatic brain injury, I say congress with the wrong elder god, same net net… This ol’ dodderer has logjammed the U .S. Senate and is within a few heartbeats of running the whole enchilada.

      1. Harry “Azathoth” Reid, Harry “Wong Way” Reid …
        I will say I’m happy to see Harry’s consistent .. he couldn’t get his own kid elected in 2010.
