Obama like the Chilean miners?

Ralph Alter
Americans have been treated to a rare taste of Harry Reid's eloquence this week. For starters, our cadaverous Senate majority leader mumbled and whined his way through a debate with his Republican opponent, Sharon Angle Sunday night. Reid wobbled like the punch-drunk former fighter he is, as Angle thoroughly dispatched the dingy one. Reid should have closed his remarks with a Duranian "No mas."
After licking his wounds, however, the Searchlight Palooka came back with perhaps the best analogy yet to describe the position Reid, Nancy Pelosi and their grand exalted leader, B.O. find themselves in after nearly two years of giving the federal government their personal best. President Obama's situation, Reid said:

..was like the Chilean miners, but he, being the man he is, rolled up his sleeves and said, "I am going to get us out of this hole."

However painful it might be, watching these Fantasy Land liberals at rock bottom with their shovels ready is actually proving to be rather fun to watch. As they continue to dig the hole they have rent in the American social, economic and political landscape, it would seem like overkill at this point to remind them of the first rule to follow when you find yourself at the bottom of a big hole.

Unlike the Chilean miners, Obama and his pals just don't know enough to stop digging.
