Sen. Reid Screws Up, Tells Truth

The leader of the Senate Democrats has a "Michael Kinsley" moment. Kinsley famously noted that, in Washington, a gaffe is when a politician says what he really thinks.

Here's Harry Reid's moment of unintentional truth: "This week we will vote on cloture and final passage of a comprehensive bill that will strengthen border security, bring the 12 million undocumented Americans out of the shadows, and keep our economy strong." [emphasis added]

Ooops. See and hear Sen. Reid's appeal on behalf of "undocumented Americans"
