On Friday, Harry Reid had a stroke or something and claimed that what the people of New Orleans went through with Hurricane Katrina was "nothing in comparison to what happened to the people in New York and New Jersey" with Hurricane Sandy. After being called an "idiot" by GOP Louisiana senator David Vitter, Reid apologized today, explaining that he "simply misspoke." Vitter, on the other hand, is perfect and has never made a mistake ever.
