Yes. If you're a Democrat you can have it both ways

The Democrats, especially people of color, including the hypocritical Sharpton are scurrying around like rats coming to the defense of Reid.

In a private conversation reported in the book Game Change, Reid described Obama as a "light-skinned" African-American "with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one."

In 2002, at a birthday party for noted longtime Republican Senator Strom Thurmond, Lott said this: "I want to say this about [Mississippi, which Lott represented]: When Strom Thurmond ran for president [in 1948, as a Dixiecrat], we voted for him. We're proud of it. And if the rest of the country had followed our lead, we wouldn't have had all these problems over all these years, either."

Trent Lott resigned.

Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) in 2002 agreed with former Sen. Trent Lott's (R-Miss.) decision to resign his leadership role after Lott made what some felt were racist remarks at former Sen. Strom Thurmond's 100th birthday party.

"He had no alternative," said Reid at the time claiming, "If you tell ethnic jokes in the backroom, it's that much easier to say ethnic things publicly. I've always practiced how I play."

Is that rich or what?

Just imagine if Sarah Palin, Mitch McConnell, or Joe Wilson described Obama as a... light-skinned African-American with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one. I hate to think what would happen if Beck or O'reilly said it.

Or. how about this one from brain dead Biden..."I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean."

Along with the remarks he made in the book Game Change I think it fitting he will be looking for a new job when the next election rolls around.

A new Mason-Dixon survey of Nevada voters finds Mr. Reid's favorable rating at just 33%, with 60% of voters disapproving of his role in the health-care debate.

One last thing. When Lott made the off the cuff remark he was speaking at Thurmond's birthday party for the whole world to here. To show you how stupid (or arrogant Reid is) his remark comes out in a book that he could have edited it out.
