A swear word might have otherwise found its way into the title of this post were it not for the fact that this is a “family-friendly” website. As I skimmed Drudge a short bit ago, I came across this little beauty over at Politico:”Michelle Obama: Harry Reid doesn’t owe me an apology”, and my head exploded:
First lady Michelle Obama told reporters Wednesday that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid doesn’t owe her an apology over his racial comments about her husband’s electoral chances because she knows Reid so well.
“Harry Reid has no need to apologize to me because I know Harry Reid. I measure people more so on what they do rather than the things they say,” said Obama, in a roundtable with several media outlets, including POLITICO.
Let’s say that again, to make sure we heard her right: “I measure people more so on what they do rather than the things they say.”
So, we elect her husband because of all that he said (and none of what he actually did)..we give him a Nobel prize-again-because of all that he said, and none of what he did. And now, vis a vis white elitist Harry Reid, we forgive what he said because of all that he did?
Again-my head just exploded.
