Harry Reid Snips Beard Baiting in the Bud (VIDEO)

It took  a week. But Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has finally come clean about why he’s not partaking in the hairy contest Nevada Republican Dean Heller floated via the local press.

Per an interview given to the Reno Gazette-Journal, Reid has officially bowed out of the collegial beard-growing challenge after taking it on the chin during a previous family vacation.

“I don’t want to, anyway,” the smooth-cheeked Nevada Democrat said of his presumably whiskerless future.
