Dems launch defense to save Reid - Yahoo! News By throwing the racecard back at the GOP. How embarrassing. So instead of just owning up and doing the right thing, calling for Reid's removal, they are going to play the racecard like children. Pathetic. This is what the democrat party has turned into. Lets recap. 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." What this actually means is that according to a racist lib like Reid, a dark skinned black man (or woman) that has a "negro dialect" could never get elected. And they defend this.
