Reid calls a spade a spade

Sure this is old news already, but this is my first crack at it.
"Dingy Harry" described Obama during the 2008 presidential campaign as a light-skinned African-American "with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one."
Those reflections appear in a new book, "Game Change," by Time magazine's Mark Halperin and New York magazine's John Heilemann.
Obama, asked about the controversy in a TV One interview, said Reid "used some inartful language in trying to praise me."
And don't forget, Joe Biden publicly shared his own similar insight into Obama's popularity during the campaign, and it didn't keep him from getting selected to be Obama's running mate. Biden omitted to note, however, that in addition to being clean, Obama was only Negro when he wanna be.
Were these comments out of line or offensive? perhaps. But you must admit there lies some truth in those statements. There's more white-boys lustin' after Halle Berry than Lawanda Page... and Barrack do change his voice when he speaks in "tha hood".

Bottom line: Should Harry Reid resign? Yes....but not because of the Obama race comments. He needs to go because he's an incompetent boob that continues to ass-rape the constitution.
