Harry Reid’s office responds to Palin’s “shrill and sarcastic political attacks”

During the big speech tonight, Sarah Palin took a swipe at Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid because like so many people, Reid can’t stand John McCain. Not sure if she knows who Harry Reid is, but it was in the speech that was written for her. Anyway, Reid’s office responded (via email):

Jim Manley, spokesman for Senator Reid: “Anyone who knows Senator Reid knows he never backs down when he’s fighting for what’s right and that he always stands up to John McCain when he is wrong. Shrill and sarcastic political attacks may fire up the Republican base, but they don’t change the fact that a McCain-Palin administration would mean four more years of failed Bush-Cheney policies.”

In our live blog of the Palin speech, I wrote “Thanks for telling the world that Harry Reid can’t stand John McCain, Sarah. That’s one reason we love Harry Reid. (p.s. You might want to talk to John McCain’s GOP Senate colleagues. They can’t stand him. They really hate him. His temper scares them. You’ll find that out soon enough, no doubt.)”
