Harry Reid, king demagoguer, let his hypocritical mask slip a bit. Mark Arminder reports the following revelation found in the soon-to-be released book Game Change:

On page 37, a remark, said “privately” by Sen. Harry Reid, about Barack Obama’s racial appeal. Though Reid would later say that he was neutral in the presidential race, the truth, the authors write, was that his “encouragement of Obama was unequivocal. He was wowed by Obama’s oratorical gifts and believed that the country was ready to embrace a black presidential candidate, especially one such as Obama — a “light-skinned” African American “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one,” as he said privately. Reid was convinced, in fact, that Obama’s race would help him more than hurt him in a bid for the Democratic nomination.

While what Harry Reid said is offensive and, in fact, truly racist (as opposed to the race card-y Racist) it shouldn’t surprise us. I’m just surprised he wasn’t chosen as the Vice President! Joe Biden must be patting himself on the back for going even further and calling Obama surprisingly “clean and articulate.” Silly me; I didn’t realize that Post-Racial actually meant making absolutely everything about one’s race. I really need to study my Newspeak Dictionary! Hey, at least Reid never attended one of those racist Tea Parties, huh? He’s not Racist-Racist since he promotes that sweet, sweet liberal policy and isn’t that all that matters?
