Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house. Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. What should surprise us was a jolly man with a list. His list amazed all with those naughty and nice. And this night Santa did appear with not a gift from his bundle, but a reminder to one who is befuddled. Who's house was Santa visiting? Why a house in Nevada for a man not worthy of reward. Whose soul was worthy only of a lump of coal.
The American Maverick presents a annual award to highlight the most destructive political figure of the year - The Political Lump of Coal Award. With the current administration, a host of unsavory politicos were a plenty to choose from.
The American Maverick selects United States Senator Harry Reid for the 2012 Political Lump of Coal recipient.
Quite the choice you will probably agree. Reid is the perfect reminder to citizens about all that is wrong with the federal government. Reid dodged a bullet in 2012 by winning re-election in Nevada versus Tea Party candidate, Sharon Angle. Now America will receive the good tidings of political execution and party bias in almost every aspect of Harry Reid's power play in the Senate.
Reid offers a bottomless pit of qualifications for Santa's lump of coal. Here's some key factors for Reid's selection:
- Has failed to pass a federal budget for almost four years. Basically using a Continuing Resolution to kick America's fiscal health down the road for a extended and dastardly time.
- Reid has stonewalled practically every single bill advanced by the Republican led Congress. Including bills to unleash the market and job creating potential to resurrect our economy.
- Reid's mouth deserves a good soaping. He lays out scathing and baseless accusations on conservatives/Republicans without any merit.
- Reid buddies up with Nancy Pelosi to tag team a political take down of anyone opposed to his ruptured sense of reality.
Runners up for the 2012 Political Lump of Coal: U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, President Barack Obama, White House Counsel Valerie Jarrett, Senator Chris Dodd, Congressman Barney Frank, and DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
