Did Reid Really Insult Pace?

Quoting bloggers who were in Reid's audience, TPM Cafe says they cannot recall Harry Reid calling Gen Pace and Petraeus "incompetent". The Washington Post says Reid neither confirmed nor denied he made the remark. Glenn Reynolds notes that Reid has confirmed calling Pace "incompetent". "Politico 1, Lefty Blogosphere 0"

Nothing follows.

Reid says he said it.

That's what you get for quoting Lefty bloggers.

The Wapo says:

When asked about that in the news conference, Reid did not confirm the use of the word but he did not appear to dispute it, either. He said he told Pace "to his face" that "I felt that he has not done a very good job in speaking out for some obvious things that weren't going right in Iraq." Asked if he thought Petraeus was incompetent, the senator said, "No, not as far as I'm concerned."

But my guess is that Reid probably said it. He's just too whatever to come out say it to their faces. But it's an interesting "fourth wall" look at what people say to each other in private. Interestingly enough,if Reid did say it and confirms it, that means all those bloggers quoted by TPM need a hearing aid or whatever.

I would suggest that the "whatever" they all need is a brain. Or a heart.

If the Texas Air National Guard memos were fake but accurate according to the left leaning blogs, what does that make the story about Reid insulting Pace and Petraeus, accurate but fake?
