Senator Harry Reid Is A Racist

By Wyatt Earp | January 10, 2010

Too strong? Maybe, maybe not:

It was just last month that Dingy Harry Reid likened Republicans who oppose the government health care to proponents of slavery.

Who’s the real RAAAAAAACIST?

The top Democrat in the U.S. Senate apologized on Saturday for comments he made about Barack Obama’s race during the 2008 presidential bid and are quoted in a yet-to-be-released book about the campaign.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada described in private then-Sen. Barack Obama as “light skinned” and “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.” Obama is the nation’s first African-American president.

Question: Did Reid apologize because he was sorry, or because he is facing a difficult re-election campaign? You make the call . . .

Michelle has some interesting exit questions as well:

Tea Party-basher Janeane Garofalo and her ilk spent the last year lambasting conservatives as racists. Where are they now?

Question 1 : Will the Washington Post devote as much ink to Reid’s racial comments as they did to George Allen’s “Macaca” moment?

Question 2: Trent Lott resigned his leadership post over his birthday party pandering in praise of Strom Thurmond’s racial segregationist presidential platform. Many conservatives (myself included) put pressure on him to resign. Where are the “progressive” Democrats who will apply the same standards to Reid?

My answers?

1. Garofalo will simply tell everyone Democrats cannot be racists.

2. Considering the offender here, the Post will brush this story off and never mention it again.

3. Those “progressive” Democrats will get to Harry right after they address the thorny Senator Robert KKK Byrd issue.

    Wyatt, I’m telling you, you need to come over here and ride the Robert Byrd Expressway into Weirton, WV. I kid you not.

    You know, I was actually proud that Obama got elected, even though I didn’t vote for him. I thought it showed that this country had gotten past the ugliness that we see in history..apparently not. I have a feeling there were others who shared Reid’s sentiments.

    GroovyVic – Others . . . like Bill Clinton?? Hey, can I shout racial epithets when I drive on the highway?

    LDIV – That’s awesome! Hopefully, he’ll be forcibly retired come November.

    How about the fact that they excuse Reid for the “Negro” part, but what does it say about the Dimbulb from Searchlight, that he thinks such a thing as a “Negro dialect” exists?

    Anyone want to buy Reid a dictionary??

    He is not sorry for what he said, he is sorry that he got caught.

    Looking on the bright side for Harry, one of the few times a he didn’t lie though.

    Proof – I am still looking for a definition of “Negro dialect.”

    Ingineer66 – Of course he is.

    BZ – I suspect even Sharpton and Jackson will excuse this.

    GroovyVic – Sweet! When I drive there, I’m shouting, “BOOBIES!”

    Jon – It’s a Christmas miracle!

    Crusty – At least in the Clinton household.

    The Obamanation must have a thing for blatant racists. During the 2008 campaign, didn’t Joe “Forrest Gump” Biden say Obama was a clean-cut, well-spoken black man (or something like that)? Hell, they put him within a heartbeat of the Obamessiah!
