Harry Reid gets in on the 'clown question, bro' act6/19/2012
If you've never heard genuine laughter at a political press conference before, check out this clip, which has Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid invoking Washington Nationals player (and Nevada constituent) Bryce Harper's "That's a clown question, bro" catchphrase. Harper first uttered the now-viral quote last week, when the 19-year-old was asked by a reporter about his favorite beer (in Canada, where the drinking age is lower). Showing crack (and unexpected) comic timing, Reid parried a question from a reporter — Roll Call's Steven T. Dennis, about Republican handling of the DREAM act — with the same putdown. The 73-year-old Reid appears to have a bit of a man-crush on Harper, whom he first praised as "a good role model" all the way back in 2010.
What's the last 'clown question' you were asked?
