Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi Use United States Capitol to Screen Anti-GOP Attack Ad


This is tacky even by the standards of the modern Democratic Party, but then again the modern Democratic Party has no standards.

The two congressional Democratic leaders will appear at a screening in the Capitol of “Koch Brothers Exposed: 2014 Edition” — a documentary that Senate Majority Leader Reid (D-Nev.) participated in. Both Reid and Minority Leader Pelosi (D-Calif.) will participate in a question and answer session as well.

The screening will be held on Tuesday evening in the Capitol Visitor Center. The movie is directed by Robert Greenwald and is a midterm update to a 2012 film of the same name.

So Reid and Pelosi don’t even have the excuse that this is a new documentary. It’s an old attack ad that’s been tinkered with a bit.

Robert Greenwald is basically the guy who stands on the corner yelling things, except he makes attack ads that he tries to pass off as documentaries. There was The Real McCain  (guess when that was released), an attack piece on Rupert Murdoch, an attack piece on the Iraq War, right when the Democrats had turned against it, an attack piece on the War in Afghanistan, ditto, an attack on Wal-Mart… you get the idea.

If you want an angry editorial in documentary form, you can Robert Greenwald. And Harry Reid will show up to mumble something about the Koch Brothers stealing his pants.

    Those evil Koch brothers provide employment for around 47,000 folks in this country at an average (straight) of $85,000 per year total compensation. Dingy Harry and Nasty Pelosi hate it when a private sector employer pays more than 4 times their proposed $10.10 minimum pittance.

    The Koch brothers are good solid citizens, hence the Democrats fear of the brother’s influence. Period.

    Pelosi, Reid, and the Democrats are all unhinged. They know their end is in sight, since Obama scandals are popping up like weeds, and they’ve gone berserk.

    This pitch could only be swallowed by ignoramuses… or Democrats, but I repeat myself, eh.
