"He's Got Big Balls!"

So sayeth Bon Scott.

And it certainly applies to Senator Harry Reid. After numerous threats from the conservatives to pull the trigger on the nuclear option, Sen. Reid says "bring it on."

In other words, "Whip it out, fucker! Let's see what you've got!"

I may not agree with Sen. Reid on every issue (abortion), but he has been a fighter since the word go. Between Reid and Howard Dean, I think the Republican party has been back on its heels lately. For so many years the Democratic Party has been one of acquiescence. If you need any proof of that look at how John Kerry handled the Swift Boat attacks. Look at how easily the Democrats rolled over on the Patriot Act or the war in Iraq. We gave in. But no more. Sen. Reid and Howard Dean have decided that the best defense is a good offense.

Obviously Reid is convinced that Frist doesn't have the votes. Either that or he's playing the biggest bluff in politics. Either way, he's clearly got a pair and he's not ashamed to whip 'em out when he needs to.

It will be interesting to see how Frist reacts to this. Will he take Reid up on his challenge or will he be forced to admit defeat? The way I see it, the balls in his court now. The longer he delays the weaker his position becomes.

Kudos to you Sen. Reid. You just took the upper hand.
