Meet Sen. Harry Reid (D-Stupidville) poster-boy for the Left-wing media’s double standard

Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele today called for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to resign his leadership position after it was revealed he had made racially insensitive remarks about then-candidate Barack Obama, saying that an apology was not enough. Steele, speaking on Fox News Sunday and NBC’s Meet the Press, said the same standard should apply to Reid as was applied to former Majority Leader Trent Lott in 2002 when Republicans controlled the Senate. Lott lost his job after praising former Strom Thurmond’s segregationist campaign for President in 1948, saying if he had won, “we wouldn’t have had all these problems over all these years.” Lott made the remarks at a 100th birthday party for the late senator.
