Harry Reid makes another call to Robert Iger of Disney

[Ed. note: I'm changing the date on this post to 9/12. It seemed even dumber than it actually is when it was sitting right underneath my 9/11 post.]

Sen. Reid: . . . so, ya know, in Cinderella, when the prince shows up with the glass slipper, right? And Cinderella tries it on, and it fits, and she leaves with the prince, and they live happily ever after?

Robert Iger: Yeah. Great story, huh?

Sen. Reid: Like hell it is. You Disney guys are just lyin' about the poor and siding with the rich. You have the evil stepmother and stepsister, they're poor, and the hero, well, he's rich. Where ya gettin' that wingnut Republican fascistic Laffer-Curve kinda s--- from?

Robert Iger: But . . .

Sen. Reid: Don't "but" me. Here's what ya gonna do: Cinderella tells the prince if he wants her, first he'll raise the minimum wage in the kingdom, then he'll raise taxes on the rich and super-rich. If you value your broadcast license, you will, if ya know what I mean.

Robert Iger:

Sen. Reid: Yeah, and don't even get me started on Winnie the Pooh.

Robert Iger:

Sen. Reid: F---in' Straussian allegories. * *

UPDATE: This was in the hopper for a couple of days, for reasons I don't want to talk about, and I feel a little funny with the Sept. 11 date up above. But if you can't be despondent about the five-year anniversary, and at the same time be crude and immature, the terrorists will have won.
