(Newser) – "Many senators are known for many things," Harry Reid told a New York fundraiser yesterday. Let's see, here's noble Chuck Schumer, who runs the DSCC ... and here's Kirsten Gillibrand, who ... is just plain smokin', reports Politico. "We in the Senate refer to Sen. Gillibrand as the hottest member," he said, as a mortified Gillibrand turned red beside him. Cough, cough. Harumph.

"What can I say, she made The Hilll's Most Beautiful list," a Reid spokesman tells Politico. "Of course he also went on to praise her skill and tenacity and described her as an effective member of the New York delegation as well."

These elitists in DC think they can say whatever they want. They feel immune to our wrath. How wrong they will be proven to be in November.
