Krauthammer Says He'll Be 'Unrestrained' in Commenting on Harry Reid's Retirement, Lives Up to That Promise Immediately

News

"Now I know you're not supposed to dance on the graves of the newly-dead, but this is only a political death so those rules don't apply and I will be unrestrained."

Charles Krauthammer said on Friday he would be "unrestrained" in commenting on Harry Reid announcing he will retire from the Senate in 2016. And he lived up to that promise.

"Harry, we hardly knew ye," Krauthammer began on Fox's "Special Report." "And what we did know, we didn't like." It only got more fiery from there:

Now I know you're not supposed to dance on the graves of the newly-dead, but this is only a political death so those rules don't apply and I will be unrestrained. I'm not against the fact hat he was a partisan with sharp elbows and all that, but I do think he was a disgrace to his own institution because he emasculated it in the name of protecting the president and trying to re-elect Democrats. He didn't succeed because he essentially shut down the Senate as soon as Republicans took the House in 2010. He failed as a partisan because nine senators of his party lost re-election, but he succeeded in protecting the president from having to exercise the veto. And in order to achieve that he killed his own institution.
