Helpful Senator, Harmful Senator

Jon Ralston reports on a recent campaign strategy session for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. “At that meeting,” writes Ralston, “not only was the $25 million figure discussed but so was $5 million to be used by the state party to create a ground campaign.”

Meanwhile, Sen. Ensign hasn’t raised a plug nickel for the Nevada Republican Party – which still lacks a staff or headquarters – despite threatening to ride in and save it last November. However, his mom and dad DID contribute $96,000 (that we know of) to pay off his mistress.

Yes, by golly, by all means we need to save Ensign’s privates….er, I mean save Private Ensign. The party can’t possibly live without him.
