Harry Reid Cracks a Joke About Mosque Position, World Does Not End

The Las Vegas Review-Journal today reported that Harry Reid stands by his position on the mosque near Ground Zero:

Sen. Harry Reid on Wednesday morning stuck with his position that Muslims have the First Amendment right to build a mosque near ground zero, but that the project should not go ahead because its construction could further divide the nation. […] “I’ve said that there’s a freedom of religion,” Reid said. “It’s time to bring people together and it’s not a time for polarization. And I think that everyone would be better off if it were built somewhere else.”

And then made funny:

Asked if he was disappointed by the rifts in the party on the topic, Reid quipped, “Which party?”

Reid’s remarks followed a news conference announcing the opening of a USO lounge at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas.
