Priebus drops a bomb

In news sure to reverberate around schoolyards across the nation, Republican Party Chairman Reince Priebus busted out the rare "triple down".  He was driven to such an extreme action after Harry Reid discussed on more than one occasion his accusation that Romney didn't pay taxes for 10 years, leading to multiple reports that Harry Reid "doubled down" on the accusation.  Although Reid never actually used the phrase himself, and the link of the phrase to Reid is the result only of its journalistic convenience for headline writers, Priebus felt it appropriate to adopt the time-honored one-upsmanship of who can say the highest number.

No word yet if Reid will respond with the dreaded "quad", but Ron Paul warns this loose "down" policy will inevitably lead to a Maury Povich-like hellscape of people saying higher and higher but still completely meaningless numbers.
