The Democrats' love affair with Republican John McCain is never ending, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid took things to a whole different level today on the Senate floor. Reid credited and thanked McCain for killing the filibuster threat against any new form of gun control legislation.

"John McCain is a leader."

Right, John McCain is a leader for doing the politically correct thing of reaching accross the aisle to promote a piece of legislation that would have done nothing to prevent any mass shooting or mass shootings in the future. Congratulations.

As a reminder, the Senate voted 68-31 this morning to proceed with debate on new gun control legislation.
