Harry Reid is really, REALLY tired

Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was diagnosed with exhaustion during his stay at the hospital Friday.

Reid went to the hospital early Friday morning because he was not feeling well. The trip was merely a “precaution,” his spokesman Adam Jentleson said in a statement Friday evening.

“Senator Reid has been released from the hospital and is back at home with his wife, Landra,” Jentleson said in a statement.

“The doctors diagnosed him as exhausted, not anything more serious, and have cleared him to go back to work,” Jentleson said. “He spent today resting, talking to family, friends and colleagues, reading the news and discussing Senate business. He appreciates the kind words and thoughts sent by so many, thanks the doctors at George Washington University Hospital for the excellent care he received, and wishes everyone a Happy Holidays.”

The Senate concluded its business for the year on Friday morning, and will not return until 2014.
