Democrats love them some light-skinned negroes
The awesomeness of the Democrats is neverending:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) apologized today for referring to President Barack Obama as “light skinned” and “with no Negro dialect” in private conversations during the 2008 presidential campaign.
And the real first black President Bill Clinton, too:
[A]s Hillary bungled Caroline, Bill’s handling of Ted was even worse. The day after Iowa, he phoned Kennedy and pressed for an endorsement, making the case for his wife. But Bill then went on, belittling Obama in a manner that deeply offended Kennedy. Recounting the conversation later to a friend, Teddy fumed that Clinton had said, A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee.
There is however, no truth to the rumor that Senator Reid refers to the President as “boy”.
See, what Clinton and Reid really meant to say, was that Obama is truly a clean and articulate negro. Not like the rest of them thar negroes. Got that, boy?
Imagine if George W. Bush or Sarah Palin had uttered any of this nonsense? There would be a public firestorm, riots in the cities, demands for hearings, breaking news stories in the MSM. It would be all over the Sunday morning shows.
