Harry Reid Wins Coveted Slave/Union Boss Endorsement

by Sara K. Smith

You know who likes Harry Reid? A “slave boss” from Dubai, who used slave labor to build Dubai’s architecturally adventurous hospitality industry edifices, so Harry Reid is basically Simon Legree! Which makes sense, when you consider that unionized African slaves built the Luxor casino two thousand years ago. [YouTube]

Suddenly the Republicans are now on the side of Big Labor! That changes my vote. Harry, time to wax you up, shove you in a gold-trimmed box, and bury you under the nickel slots.

Mr Blifil March 17, 2010 at 10:14 am

[re=532136]The Huffington Pogue[/re]: Personally I can never get enough dick smothering. Neither can Harry Reid, which is why he must be EXPOSED!111!!1

JMP March 17, 2010 at 10:15 am

Sometimes the Republicans confuse. Why have they put all this effort to take down the Senate Majority Leader whose constantly bending over backwards and spreading his cheeks to give them whatever they want?

Come here a minute March 17, 2010 at 10:15 am

“Hospitality Industry” means whores, in Nevadaese, so this is a big win for Harry.

bitchincamaro March 17, 2010 at 10:16 am

Yeah, whatever. Slaves may have mastered the pyramid form in the desert, but they need to go back to the drawing board on that helix thingie.

With any luck, anyone looking for a website called ‘expose harry’ will quickly get sidetracked.

Used to be a member Local 2739 of the Amalgamated Indentured Servants of Egypt. Yeah, the work rules were tough, but the retirement benefits were awesome: eternal afterlife. And you didn’t want to get cattywampus with the shop steward, or he’d call a walkout.

[re=532138]Chickensmack[/re]: Not only for big labor, but against unfettered capitalism! Dubai is a model for the world of the glories of unequal wealth accumulation as mounted on the backs of the poor, something you would think republicans could get behind.

user-of-owls March 17, 2010 at 10:46 am

[re=532181]JMP[/re]: You should be proud of Sen. Santorum (R-Man On Dog), he’s a crusader against giving homophones the right to marry.

[re=532176]Mad Brahms[/re]: Never thought I’d see the day when Republicans would assist in the cause of labor over management, and on the side of skiing Muslins.

Ducksworthy March 17, 2010 at 10:48 am

The Republicans have gone back to being anti-slavery? When will the new Lincoln emerge?

One Toke Over The Line March 17, 2010 at 10:52 am

Hmm? A naked Harry Reid or a Drano eye wash? Tough choice.

Sweet Baby Cheeses March 17, 2010 at 10:58 am

I am already tired of hearing what goes on in the Capitol showers.

Republicans are for social justice now? Glenn Beck will not be amused.

Jesus is this the best they have?

Cause I have to believe that Tark the Shark’s boy is probably on tape with some hookers at a scab hotel.

The hookers won’t hurt him in NV but the scab hotel will.

[re=532149]bitchincamaro[/re]: Uhm, no snark here. But this building *literally* does not exist in Dubai. Us Arabians like us some flashy slave-labor buildings but this here crystal dildo isn’t one of them.

AngryBlakGuy March 17, 2010 at 11:33 am

…as a blak man I resent anyone other than a white man being referred to as slave master!

Sussemilch March 17, 2010 at 11:34 am

How do you say ‘hairy reed’ in Arabic?

rottenart March 17, 2010 at 11:36 am

Still no comment from them on the Saudi Prince who owns Fauxnews, eh? One might be tempted to call them hypocrites…

JMP March 17, 2010 at 11:38 am

[re=532184]Chickensmack[/re]: To be fair, they’re only supporting labor in foreign countries; the ad then screams about “union labor in Las Vegas” as if it’s somehow sinister.

Also, good stretch there; the businessman who’s donated money to Reid’s campaign is part CEO of a company that’s also part-owned by another businessman who’s also a part owner in companies that do work in Dubai. We can probably connect Reid to Kevin Bacon in less steps.

[re=532149]bitchincamaro[/re]: That’s an old, longstanding misconception; archeological evidence has shown that the pyramids were built by skilled, paid laborers, not slaves.

Flanders March 17, 2010 at 11:44 am

[re=531535]ForTheTurnstiles[/re]: Yeah, me too, now. Ever since last night. Pah-nah-maaa!

AngryBlakGuy March 17, 2010 at 11:48 am

@SUSSEMILCH: the same way you say it English “if I wanted your opinion I would pull my dikk out of your mouth and ask for it!!!”. It is a bit of mothful but harry is use to it!

OzoneTom March 17, 2010 at 12:16 pm

[re=532186]One Toke Over The Line[/re]: After the first, you’ll need the second.

Also, I thought that Moses’ people built the pyramids. So [re=532206]yeah[/re], they got paid I’m sure.

Magnus Maximus March 17, 2010 at 12:36 pm

Harry Reid! Nancy Pelosi!

(laugh track, applause)

JMP March 17, 2010 at 12:41 pm

[re=532226]OzoneTom[/re]: Hee, that old myth. Even disregarding the fact the all evidence shows there were never Jews in Egypt (in fact, there’s nothing in all the Exodus myth supported by archaeology; and the Egyptians kept meticulous records), the time the story was supposed to have happened according to the Bible was about a thousand years after the pyramids were built.

But, most people never let pesky inconvenient evidence get in the way of what they want to believe.

SayItWithWookies March 17, 2010 at 12:46 pm

[re=532226]OzoneTom[/re]: Well, insofar as the Hebrews probably weren’t enslaved in Egypt ever, and modern archaeology tends to show that Judea was populated by seminomadic peoples from the south and west who just decided to settle down, and most of the Bible before King David was just a bunch of stories told over a few drinks one night, sure. Anyone from a big family of drunks, as I am, would be familiar with such forms of history.

gurukalehuru March 17, 2010 at 12:51 pm

[re=532206]JMP[/re]: Harry Reid knows President Obama who was supported by Scarlett Johansson who was in He’s Just Not That Into You with Jennifer Aniston who was in Picture Perfect with Kevin Bacon.
I’d call it about a tie.

WadISay March 17, 2010 at 1:00 pm

[re=532164]wendykat123[/re]: Well, if you’re 10 and your BF is 18, this is certainly news, though maybe not in the Ukraine, there.

user-of-owls March 17, 2010 at 1:18 pm

[re=532239]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Well the Chosen People may not have had their hands on the Egyptian pyramids, they most certainly responsible for Teotihuacan, Uxmal and Chichen Itza!

Visitor: Whose pyramid is that?
Rabbi: Oy, it’s Mayan of course!

Why have they put all this effort to take down the Senate Majority Leader whose constantly bending over backwards and spreading his cheeks to give them whatever they want?

It’s because no matter how right-wing things are, they could always be MORE right-wing. And, yes, someone could be more right-wing than Harry Reid. Brigham Young, for example.

lawrenceofthedesert March 17, 2010 at 1:40 pm

I like the story about how baby Harry was discovered in bullrushes behind a casino in Parumph by Debbie Reynolds and raised as one of her own, or something like that. I think it’s in the book of the Bible called Exandoh’s, when my landsmen tic tac toe to the Promised Land, Beverly Hills. Bob Marley wrote a song about it!

zenferret March 17, 2010 at 1:44 pm

[re=532237]JMP[/re]: Well the pyramids were built centuries before Moses lived. And there is evidence of Hebrews in Egypt but not for centuries after that.

But Charleton Heston movies are the best history so they were.

SayItWithWookies March 17, 2010 at 2:15 pm

[re=532249]user-of-owls[/re]: That explains why the Mayans didn’t eat pork. Also how they got to Florida so quickly.

JMP March 17, 2010 at 2:30 pm

[re=532290]zenferret[/re]: There’s evidence of Hebrews in Egypt, but ones who came from the Kingdom of Judea, long after it had been established & the time of King Davis.

gaystorm March 17, 2010 at 2:38 pm

[re=532243]x111e7thst[/re]: It all started when you libruls elected that Kenyan Muslin for Preznit.

I prefer Gayrabs for my people. Even San Francisco can’t provide you with hordes of swarthy men in dresses and strict gender segregation to keep the wimmin from messing with our fabulousness. Buttsecks also!
