...out of time.
"Who's a Twitter?"
"What's a Facebook?"
These are questions, of course, we imagine U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Slot Machines) poses when the subjects of technology and social media arise. And while his office has established various accounts in his name with the usual venues, no one in their right mind believes the guy has ever "Tweeted" or posted a "status update."
Following his debate with Republican challenger Sharon Angle last night - where the GOPer called Reid out on his infamous, "...the Iraq War is lost" comments, the Silver State's senior senator posted this on his Twitter account:
(As you can see, Reid also posted his response on his "fact check" website.)
Unfortunately for Reid, audio and video that make their way to the Internet do not die. Watch and learn:
From the venerable blog, Hot Air: "This comment came on April 19, 2007, more than a month after the comment Reid claims Angle is misrepresenting. In it, one can get the impression that Reid wants people to think that the war in Iraq had already been lost, because he says:
'Now I believe, myself, that the secretary of state, the secretary of defense and you have to make your own decision as to what the president knows:that this war is lost, that the surge is not accomplishing anything.'"
Poor old Harry - he's out of touch...and out of time.
