Never one to let an opportunity to say something confusing and weird pass him by, John Kerry issued a statement last night congratulating Harry Reid on his victory over Sharron Angle. Naturally, because it came from Kerry, this statement favorably compared the Senate Majority Leader to Count Dracula. Considering how hard Reid worked in recent months to convince Nevada voters he was not, in fact, a Romanian nobleman who wanted to drink their blood, Kerry's words likely fall under the category of 'unhelpful'. The full statement (complete with HuffPo bashing):
"Politico was wrong, Huffington Post was wrong, hell, all the pundits were wrong. Harry Reid isn't just Dracula, he isn't just Lazarus, he's our Leader and our whole caucus is thrilled that he's unbreakable and unbeatable."
