Searchlight's Dim Bulb

From Opinion Journal:

"U.S. Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid called for the resignation of Homeland Security Department Secretary Michael Chertoff on Wednesday, one day after the government dropped Las Vegas from a list of cities considered potential high-risk targets eligible for special anti-terrorism grants," reports the Las Vegas Review-Journal:

"Anyone who can't see that Las Vegas is a high-risk area doesn't deserve to serve in a position like that," Reid said. "We had more visitors on New Year's Eve than they had in Times Square and we're not a high-risk area? For heaven's sakes."

Here's the killer paragraph that I really like:

We wanted to send Reid an e-mail expressing our support for his position, so we went to the "E-Mail Form" on his Web site. The form includes a pull-down menu to select the "general topic of your message." There are 29 topics, but homeland security is not among them.

Heh, heh. I've nothing to add.
