Harry Reid, as usual, was a little slow out of the blocks in the execution of the Democrats' role in the subprime mess. So he decided to chip in late in the game with his effort to tank beleagured insurance stocks by predicting a big name was going to fail. Unlike Charles Schumer, he didn't name the name -- but he made sure to state that he knew the name, and that we all did too.
Together, of course, they are the Reid-Schumer Cabal.
