    Why Is Harry Reid’s Campaign Spokesman Following Me?

    Why Is Harry Reid’s Campaign Spokesman Following Me?

    Kelly Steele is Harry Reid’s campaign spokesman and one of the chief strategists.

    According to reports, Steele is credited with taking down Sue Lowden, and is in charge of the early efforts to paint Sharron Angle as an extremist and crazy:

    And that’s where Steele factors in–to help Reid, as his team puts it, “vaporize” his opponent. He came aboard earlier this year, along with Reid’s long-time spokesman Jon Summers, who now splits time between the federal office and the campaign in Nevada.

    A few days ago I posted that the difference between the Reid and Angle campaigns was that all Angle had to do to win was to tell the truth about Reid, while Reid needed to lie about Angle.

    Soon after that post, two Twitter accounts related to the Nevada campaign signed on to follow me on Twitter. The first was Angle’s Bunker, which is an anti-Angle website funded by the Nevada Democratic Party.

    The second was Kelly Steele, who uses the Avatar in the image above right.

    Not a real big deal. Anyone can follow me on Twitter.

    But I’m not sure Steele understands he will have to put up with such inane tweets as my best wishes to the nation of Ghana for further success in the World Cup, and my retweet of the following:

    And of course, my retweet of Sharron Angle’s announcement that she had met her initial $1 million fundraising goal:

    But then again, Steele probably isn’t too worried about money, since Reid is reported to have $17 million on hand, and he is expected to raise up to $25 million.

    Considering the failed Stimulus Bill, ObamaCare, the Cornhuster Kickback and Louisiana Purchase, trillion dollar deficits as far as the eye can see, crushing national debt, “the war is lost,” “the surge has failed,” and a summer of cap-and-tax maneuvering, even $25 million cannot rehabilitate Reid.

    Which is why it is Steele’s job to “vaporize” Angle instead.

    Anyway, back to the title of this post. Should I be honored, or worried?

    I think MaggotAtBroad&Wall; on June 27, 2010 at 7:28 PM, hits very near the mark … your very early recognition of the potential of the candidacy of Scott Brown put you on their “to do” list, and I think for good!

    As if your mere recognition of Coakley’s vulnerability were not bad enough, you then proceeded to keep it up . . . you even had the temerity to both practically and intellectually rally support for Brown’s cause, including by visiting and reporting back from Scott Brown’s campaign headquarters about how well things were going!

    But for many lefties, I think the real kicker is that you are a law professor, one who is cogitating and imparting knowledge under the umbrella of a prestigious eastern university, no less, and who is simultaneously quite openly and actively consorting with the "enemy!"

    That fact has to put you quite high up on their list. That would cause you to be followed!

    So, I say forget about the so-called TownHall list"The 100 Americans the Left Hates Most!"

    That is a list made up by and for some on the right. While it does not mean that many choices are not correct, it does mean that the potential for misjudgment or oversight is significant.

    I see little no evidence whatsoever that anyone on the left was consulted in the preparation of that list, for example, nor even any indication of polling of the progressive base done to find out who they really hated and feared.

    So, how did the author or authors of that list know who the left really fears and hates? It is anyone's guess.

    To me, the fact that they curiously eliminated anyone who is not an American citizen seems quite, well . . . arbitrary and capricious, to borrow a phrase. How could Mark Steyn not be on such a list, for example? Were the Marquis de Lafayette and Tadeusz Kościuszko not both great American Patriots?

    My sense is that the larboard-leaners themselves do indeed remember Tom Foley. And, they intrinsically know that anyone who goes squirrel hunting for their leader is a person to be loathed and despised, like no other! Mind you, some of those folks may themselves even harbor feelings of true disdain for dirty Harry. But that does not excuse anyone from the center or the right giving an assist in his political demise!

    So, why do they "follow you?" I say it’s because you are on "their list," both for what you "did" to the Martha Coakley campaign, and for what you might similarly be at least partially responsible for in the case of Harry Reid.

    Robert Costa at the Corner tells us:

    Later today, Angle will answer questions from journalist Jon Ralston on Face to Face, Nevada’s own version of Meet the Press. You can watch the interview live, online, at 9:30 p.m. EST, here.
