Harry Reid-isms; the Hickenlooper divorce isn’t ‘awkward’; and Obama’s Natitude (read-this roundup)

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is no shrinking violet. (J. Scott Applewhite - Associated Press)
Here’s what the Loop is reading Wednesday morning:

Reidisms — Here’s your “Treasury of Shocking Statements by Harry Reid.” Critics say they’re gaffes, but some are just more blunt than we’re used to hearing from the Uppah Chamber. (The Loop would like to nominate his statement about how tourists in the Capitol smelled bad for inclusion).

Attention, party planners — Our favorite line from the announcement issued by Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper and his wife on their divorce: “Please feel free to include both of us in social gatherings as we will not find it awkward.”

Bandwagon, much? — More evidence that President Obama is developing some Natitude.
