Quoted: Harry Reid on Ben Nelson’s spectacular hair

Ben Nelson. (Melina Mara/The Washington Post - The Washington Post)
“I mean, that is a mop of real hair. . . He’ll pull it for you anytime just to show you that it’s real.”

Sen. Harry Reid in a farewell tribute to retiring Sen. Ben Nelson and his remarkable crowning glory — a mane so enduring that some voters, Reid said, “believe he has a toupee.” In his speech on the Senate floor, the majority leader digressed further on his hair envy: “My wife has said on many occasions how handsome Pat Leahy is and she’s so glad he doesn’t do a comb-over.”
