LAS VEGAS, Nev. / A viral video on YouTube that features about 70 demonstrators mocking Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) outside an invitation-only fundraiser in upscale Greenwich, Conn. is sweeping the Internet thanks to email, Twitter and repeated posts on Facebook.  

“I love it! I live in NV and can’t wait to reject Reid in November,” commented one person who goes by the name “macrotrax.”

Writes ‘iconaclastor’:  “I am a Nevadan and Harry Reid will not get my vote. It’s great to see others in another state voicing their opposition to him since he has sold out America for the extreme left wing of the Democratic Party which is socialistic and out of the main stream and spent us into historic deficit spending.”

The seven-minute video features Tea Party and other activists who mimic Reid along with Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.), co-host of the fundraiser held at the home of a wealthy Wall Street banker.  The event took place as the U.S. Senate happened to be debating Wall Street reform.

“I feel very strongly that Harry Reid and the Democratic Party are destroying our country and destroying our way of life,” said Leora Levy, who lives nearby and was quoted in the Greenwich Time newspaper. “My family escaped the communist revolution in Cuba and through hard work made a great life for ourselves in this country. Harry Reid is trying to deny that opportunity to others.”

An invitation suggested a minimum donation of $1,000 per person to attend the event featuring Harry Reid, who is trailing three Republican opponents by double digits in recent Nevada polls.  

The viral video featuring the protest is the first of three produced by the website RejectReid.com (http://www.rejectreid.com).

The proliferation of viral videos in the 2008 campaign provided evidence that people increasingly turn to the Internet for news.
