It’s good to be Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Sure, all the establishment whiners are like, OH, HOW RUDE, Harry Reid is positing terrible things about poor Mittens Romney, who has no possible way to clear himself of Harry Reid’s terrible charges! Worse, Reid refuses to say who his source is, and we ALL KNOW you are always supposed to give up your source, immediately, because that is how sources work! Jon Stewart especially, in his role as Defender of Civility and the Faith, is most dismayed by the Ethics of it all. But, hrrrm, now CNN’s Dana Bash is doubling down in defense of Harry of the Mighty Balls, with her own source, who also knows the source, and who says if we knew the source we would all be like DAYUMM, yeah, that source WOULD be in a position to know that Mitt Romney, despite his heated avowals that he has paid taxes and a lot of them every year forever, could actually have been telling the truth and lying at the same time, because he never said “income” tax. Haha, gotcha stupid media. Where were we? Yes, Dana Bash says that her source says that the first source is like a super famous person or something that we would all know, and who would know. Here, since the HuffPo video player is being rather cunty, is a transcript:
Bash: But I did speak, I just have to tell you, that I did speak to one source who’s very close to Senator Reid who claims to also know who this Bain investor is that Reid spoke with, and insists that this is a credible person and this person if we knew the name we would understand that they would have the authority and the ability to know about Romney’s tax returns. Whether we’ll find it out ever, who knows. But they’re doing this on purpose so that this is the discussion.
Which can mean only one thing:
the source is Ann Romney. You guys, it was staring you in the face THE WHOLE TIME. (And by “it,” we mean “Ann Romney’s nipple.”)
