Harry Reid: ‘I simply misspoke’ when I wrote off Katrina victims

Anyone up for some backpedaling? After managing to tick off people across the political spectrum for his asinine remarks about Hurricane Katrina being “nothing” compared to Sandy, Harry Reid is attempting to do damage control:

Wow: Sen. Reid says in statement he “misspoke” when he said Sandy was worse than Katrina. twitter.com/rebeccagberg/s…

Ah. He misspoke, you see? It’s all well and good to spew garbage when you’ve got that trusty (D) after your name:

Yes, (D)’s are allowed to. RT @ralstonreports Reid now says he “simply misspoke” on disaster relief comments comparing Sandy and Katrina.

Now, Dingy Harry says he “misspoke” when he dissed Hurricane Katrina victims. Gotta love that D-immunity. ICMYI ==> is.gd/dvzlOw
