image This is uber-creepy, from The Hill:

"I’m going to be very honest with you — Chris Coons, everybody knows him in the Democratic caucus. He’s my pet. He’s my favorite candidate," Reid said.

"Let me tell you about him: A graduate of Yale Divinity School. Yale Law School. A two-time national debate champion. He represents two-thirds of the state now, in an elected capacity. I don’t know if you’ve ever seen him or heard him speak, but he is a dynamic speaker. I don’t mean loud or long; he’s a communicator. So that’s how I feel about Delaware. I’ve always thought Chris Coons is going to win. I told him that and I tried to get him to run. I’m glad he’s running. I just think the world of him. He’s my pet."

He said it not only once, but twice.  Does anyone else find it strange that the Senate Majority Leader refers to the Democrat candidate for Senate in Delaware as “my pet.”  It’s reminds me of a certain former Senator out in his neck of the woods.  Definitely has a man-crush thing going on here.  Meredith Jessup at The Blaze coined a new Christine O’Donnell campaign slogan – “Christine O’Donnell – NOT Harry Reid’s pet.”  Michelle Malkin has the perfect campaign poster idea.
