Was Harry Reid out of line?

I think that he just did not know anything about Barry Obama. Saying something regarding a "Negro dialect" about Obama who is half-white, raised in Hawaii and Indonesia, has never been around many uneducated black folks, just shows how stupid Harry Reid is. Is Reid racist? Is he Democrat? Kinda proves that he is, amiright?

And you need to make the poll on the budget where you can pick every choice. All need to be slashed by half. At least. I guess the brightest idea would be to cut higher education, since we had an increase of 10% last year in enrollment, something tells me that it is much too cheap for the market.

well...it is a racial issue to live in America. dont know about all those conspiracies about Obama being a REAL american or not, but I do know that the President can do very little unless he/she invokes a national emergency like Bush did, declare war , declare victory, and retire.

As far as the budget cuts do , I agree with the previous post, except I would be cutting education in JPS by 50%, since they are doing a half ass job.

Life goes on.

Reid passed the acid test for racism.....

He supports Health Care Reform

Break it down. Reid said;

"Light skinned"? Yep.

"African American"? Well, we'll say whatever floats his election boat.. Anyway,

Finally, Reid said, "doesn't have a negro dialect unless he wanted to have one"? Um..he doesn't.

So what's wrong with what he said?? Because of the word negro? Or because he implied that African Americans have a certain dialect? Is someone REALLY trying to say with a straight face that all African Americans sound just like Obama?

Or is it because he implied our country might not be ready for a president that looks and talks more traditionally "black"? So. Perhaps that's a reasonable ponderance.
But apparently if you utter the word 'negro', you better be ready to resign from whatever rank you hold since it's now a "racial slur". I don't use it anyway, but someone should probably alert the United Negro College Fund to change their letterhead, then.

The question is, can you condemn one, (Lott), for what some view as implied racism, and ignore it from another..

MAYBE, it's all something called a freggin' opinion that's being expressed, and everyone should grow a backbone and take it. OBAMA did.

Ironghost said...

Yeah, but Lott got run out for stating his "opinion", you know.

Seems a difference between poorly stating the obvious...light skinned...doesn't have an accent which would scare white folks... and saying that we'd been better off if Strom had won the presidency in 1948...Strom being an avowed segregationist most of his political career if not in the sack. And, then, there's Trent hobnobbing with the White Citzen's Council.
Better if Republicans just attack what Reid said and not draw comparisons...it'd play better.

Kingfish said...

Agreed. I'm sick of the whole game where whenever someone says something off-color or tasteless, then its to the barricades to crucify that person, regardless of which side it is.

Harry Reid should receive the exact same treatment by both the senate and the news media that Trent Lott received. Of course he won't because it is apparently OK for Democrats to say whatever they want but Republicans get crucified for the same thing. And people really have to ask the question if we have a double standard in this country? Give me a break!

Kingfish said...

Can anyone just laugh at the damn video?

paul mitchell said...

Sorry, Kingfish, I never saw the video until I turned off the AD Block Plus on Firefox. It was cute.

KF, the video is funny...SNL is actually pretty good again.

9:03 If Trent had decided to run again, he'd have been reelected. Indeed, voters in a state tend not to like it too much when one of their own is attacked by outsiders for a " hoof in mouth problem"...especially if the attack seems excessive or unfair. He may be a dumb SOB but he's their dumb SOB.
Reid was in political trouble in his state. I expect this poorly thought out attack will help him.

"You married a black woman,[moving up] but in the past you dated white women [still moving up!]."

I laughed at the video KF.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.
