Harry Reid: Working With Republicans Like Wrestling A ‘Greasy Little Pig’

Senate Democrats Speak To The Press After Weekly Policy Meetings

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) described working with Republicans as wrestling a “greasy little pig.”

In a speech opening up the Senate Tuesday morning, Reid described rural Nevada rodeos where organizers cover a piglet in grease and send children out to grab it. “The organizers get a little pig, piglet, and they cover this little animal with tons of grease. It’s a greasy little pig,” Reid said.”

“Pigs are a little slippery to begin with, but when you cover it in grease they are really slippery,” Reid explained, noting that it was “a painless ordeal for the pig but it’s a lot of fun.”

“Mr. President, the reason I mention this, ofttimes working with my Senate Republican colleagues reminds me of chasing one of these little pigs in a greased pig contest,” Reid continued. “Regardless of all of our efforts, any time we get close to making progress, it seems as though we watch it slip out of our hands, and the Republicans scamper away.”
