Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid had an unusual form of praise for New York’s junior senator, Kirsten Gillibrand, this morning at the fundraiser Mayor Bloomberg hosted for him at his townhouse – referring to her as “the hottest member” as she sat just a few feet away, according to three sources. The comment prompted Gillibrand to turn red, according to the sources, and created a bit of stir among the small crowd there. “It was pretty shocking when he said it,” said one source familiar with the remark and the reaction.
"We'll, you see, Harry is a very sweet man who sees himself as Hugh Hefner, smoking jacket and all. He's tried recruiting me to be his Holly Madison and wants me to be called his sweetie, but I'm too old for that now and want to be taken serial. I'm like, a Senator. You know? Why should I have to buff the Majority Leader's lobby, as Harry requested me one night? Anywho, I kept a poem he dropped by my desk - or was it slipped down my blouse? - which I then interpreted as a proposition. It reads:

But she never left her bed
Even when she was giving Harry head.She says, Hey babeTake a walk on the wild sideI Said, Hey babyTake a walk on the wild sideAnd the New York girls goDoo do doo do doo do do doo...
