New Reidisms: Colon snips up your ... and pink football helmets

It's hard to prioritize the many "Reidisms" committed by Sen. Harry Reid in his debate with Sharron Angle last night.

Certainly, the colonoscopy soliloquy belongs right up there. Who can forget Reid saying "if you do colonoscopies, colon cancer does not come cause you snip off the things they find when they go up ... and no more." Glad he had the foresight not to complete the sentence about where they "go up" during a colonoscopy. And was I the only one who cringed when he said "snip off things"? I bet not.

But my favorite Reidism came when he said we have to force insurance companies to cover mammograms because "That’s why you see breast cancer awareness month, you see the baseball players wearing pink shoes and you see the football players having pink helmets."

Ala Norm Crosby, as he said "pink helmets" as he touched his shoulders.

But more importantly, someone ought to ask Sen. Reid when was the last time he actually watched a football game, and precisely what team is he watching that wears (or as he says "having") pink helmets?
