Reid Gets a Pass for Racist Remarks?

Comments that are nothing but ignorant and racist seem to have little affect if you are in the right party it seems. I know this is being commented on ad nauseam, but in the new book, Game Change by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin, many bombshells explode. In my opinion, Sen. Harry Reid should no longer carry the title of Senator after reports have surfaced and he has admitted to calling President Obama a "light-skinned" African American with "no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one." That absolutely sounds like something an ignorant old white guy would say. Test out the theory of substitution with these comments. Imagine if a conservative had said they same thing. Imagine if McCain had said that in his concession speech on election night last year. Imagine if a tool like Glenn Beck had said that. He might as well commit suicide at that point. This is not about me defending conservatives, though, because they are idiots as well. It is about a double-standard and bullshiat hypocrisy. This is the kind of thing that brings down political careers and this guy is shaking it off like a polaroid picture. Look at the conservative political scandal trail of dead, Newt Gingrich, Trent Lott, among others. Then look at Democrats shaking off their scandals. Some people think our current president was not even born in this country, but that issue is never dignified with a response so I assume no one with any sort of power is even checking on it.
Why is it never addressed if there in nothing to hide on his birth certificate? The avoidance is the only thing that even raises my eyebrow about an out-there story like that. Another example of the bulletproof democrat is Bill Clinton, but that may change when the heat moves from Reid to other quotes cited in Game Change. They authors allege that Bill Clinton was quoted as saying that "a few years ago he would have been getting our coffee" in reference to Barack Obama. Wow. I might have to read this book. It sounds juicy.

To sum up, Harry Reid is a racist-ass cracker peckerwood.
