Harry Reid is guilty of having been alive during a time when the word "negro" was in common use. He is also guilty of being bone-headed. I know the man isn't a racist given his life's work and I'm a firm believer that all people are imperfect, but let's just level hereL Harry Reid needs to, at the very least, step down as the Majority Leader in the U.S. Senate.
The biggest reason for this is that he always kind of sucked at being the Majority Leader. I don't know about you, but I'd prefer a Majority Leader Schumer or even Durbin over Harry Reid.
Another reason is because he'll never quite live this one down. Seriously. Again, he's obviously not a racist- this just speaks to how inarticulate he can be. See; the Iraq War is "lost".
Another reason is because he looks to be getting absolutely killed in Nevada right now. How the heck is he going to come back and win in November? Granted, if he is stepping down as Majority Leader that might not help him win in November either. But that's if Reid can even possibly win. I don't think he can, especially after bone-headed comments like that. Then again, I also don't know if there's another Democrat that could have a serious chance of winning statewide in Nevada this year.
So there's my half a cent. What's yours?
