Oh, no bigots or racists here.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) apologized today for referring to President Barack Obama as “light skinned” and “with no Negro dialect” in private conversations during the 2008 presidential campaign.
“I deeply regret using such a poor choice of words,” said Reid in a statement. “I sincerely apologize for offending any and all Americans, especially African Americans for my improper comments.”
This is the majority leader in the Senate. I’ll wait patiently for the calls of resignation from the rank and file Democrats, who showing no hypocrisy will denounce this man who certainly doesn’t represent them. Right? They’ll do that, won’t they?
Oh, wait. Two words tell me what they’ll really do: Joe Biden.
