Unless you're born under a rock then you know that until last week Harry Reid was sort of a closet racist, but just in case you missed it here is a passage from the new book "Game Change" about the 2008 presidential election...
He was wowed by Obama's oratorical gifts and believed that the country was ready to embrace a black presidential candidate, especially one such as Obama -- aAfrican American "with no dialect, unless he wanted to have one"...

3. The measure of George Will's knowlege of what this word means
Now liberals are circling their wagons around Reid because race isn't a four letter word in the Democratic party (usually because Biden gets to spell it).
Even conservative DC bubbleheads like George Will are going to bat for Reid on George Stephanopoulos's show saying there wasn't even a "scintilla" of evidence of racism.....
Not even a scintilla? Does Will even know the definition of that word? The whole thing is ONLY about race, and it denigrates "real" black....ahem....."negro" people!
Honestly, if that isn't racism then I'm starting to wonder if that word actually has less to do with the color of people's skin and more do do with prefering Nascar over golf. At least then we can try to begin to make sense of George Will, who has obviously been drinking the DC establishment water for way to long now. Being a conservative on any network political program is like being a permanent pledge on the most elite fraternity on campus (in their minds only).
Of course what Reid said is loaded with racism! Next to figuring out how to steal other peoples money for themselves all liberals think about is how to be better race pimps....they've been vote counting to it for decades.

But just because someone utters something that smacks of racism does not a racist make, right? Its not like Reid or other Democrats are supporting institutions that oppress, rob liberty, or even enslave the constituents they are marketed to in ways that make them scared to vote for Republicans lest they loose access to the "stash".
Hmmmm...studies have shown that homophobes are really just lashing out in an effort to quell their own latent gay sensibilities.....maybe Reid isn't racist so much as he is trying to....express himself.
