By Charles Murray's logic, that is. The UFC, one of the cultural touchstones mentioned in Murray's dumb, dumb opinion piece, has endorsed Reid, a former boxer, in the Nevada Senate race:
Some of the biggest stars in the mixed martial arts cage-fighting world have come out for Reid, most recently Randy Couture, aka Captain America, aka The Natural, Ultimate Fighting Championship Hall of Famer, six-time heavyweight champion and registered Republican.
Also in Reid's corner: Two-time champion Frank Mir, who once vowed to break an opponent's neck in the ring, has taped a television ad for the senator. Chuck "The Iceman" Liddell, the sport's elder statesman, appeared at a rally for Reid earlier this month, alongside UFC President Dana White.
I guess this gives him a fighting chance at success, heh heh heh.
