Washington- Frustrated by plummeting poll numbers and facing tough reelection campaigns this November, several senate Democrats have proposed waterboarding Harry Reid.

Apparently, a fair number of his colleagues consider Reid the very face of the public's ever-increasing disdain for their elected officials.

"Well, we talked it over and chose Reid because he'll be the easiest to hold down," said one congressional Democrat requesting anonymity. "Of course, Nancy's name came up too," he added, "but we wouldn't want to screw up her makeup. She does wear makeup, right?"

Others suggested Reid was chosen on the merits. "The guy is (a) a dweeb and (2) a dolt," said one unnamed Democrat. Said another, "Harry Reid smells." Said yet one more, "Every year we lose the annual Republicans versus Democrats softball game because Reid insists on batting cleanup- and he totally sucks!"

When informed of his colleagues' plot, Reid shrugged it off as mere venting. "Look, this sort of thing is predictable. The high unemployment numbers make men, particularly southern men and men of Irish descent, more likely to engage in violence against the stunningly intelligent. But I'm not worried. Reason will prevail."

Others were not so sure. "Oh, he's going down."

Perhaps best summing up the mood of fellow Democrats, one disgruntled congressman asked, "If what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, what's Harry Reid doing in Washington?"
