Minority leader Reid thinks kissing is bad

I guess democrats think big wet kisses are bad, or atleast un-ethical. Maybe they should call for an ethic investigation then say no when the committe says ok.....sorry, a little Tom Delay reference there, read on...
Once again, thank you opinionjournal.com (Best of the Web)
The Oral Minority
A reader called our attention to a pair of strangely similar quotes from Democratic senators. On March 5, North Dakota's Byron Dorgan said of President Bush's Social Security ideas, ''This is a big wet kiss to Wall Street." Then, last Thursday, Nevada's Harry Reid, the minority leader, said of Majority Leader Bill Frist's filibuster compromise, "It's a big wet kiss to the far right."

We found several other examples of liberals referring to their opponents' actions as "wet kisses":

" 'South Park Conservatives: The Revolt Against Liberal Media Bias,' by Brian C. Anderson of the conservative think tank the Manhattan Institute [available at the OpinionJournal bookstore], gives a wet kiss to one of the funniest and most foul-mouthed series on television."--Frank Rich, New York Times


"Ron Reagan, the president's son, on a talk show wondered why [Florida's state Rep. Dennis] Baxley was giving a big wet kiss to the National Rifle Association with the 'use of force' bill."--Tallahassee Democrat


"A sloppy wet kiss to the credit card industry."--Loren Steffy, Houston Chronicle, on the bankruptcy-reform law

Naturally, we wondered if American liberals have an oral fixation. About.com describes the Freudian "oral stage," which normally lasts from birth to age 1 1/2: "Because the child's personality is controlled by the id and therefore demands immediate gratification, responsive nurturing is key. Both insufficient and forceful feeding can result in fixation in this stage."

Here are the symptoms of oral fixation:

Smoking
Constant chewing on gum, pens, pencils, etc.
Nail biting
Overeating
Drinking
Sarcasm ("the biting personality") and verbal hostility
Seems to us we may be on to something here, though as we're sure Bill Clinton would hasten to point out, sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.
