The above photo of current Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid reminds me of Pat Geary, the fictional U.S. Senator from Nevada portrayed by G.D. Spradlin in the movie Godfather Part II.
Reid’s effusive praise of Obama “his heart is bigger than any heart in the world” calls to mind Geary’s defense of the Corleone crime family at a Senate committee investigating organized crime.
The committee had subpoenaed the crime family to answer charges of criminal activity. Geary attacked the committee, calling its questioning of the crime family deplorable, and accusing it of perpetuating Italian American stereotypes.
“Organized crime cannot operate without corruption. So … who do they need to corrupt? They need to corrupt public officials.”—Joe Pistone, aka Donnie Brasco, FBI agent who infiltrated the Bonanno crime family
