  • “It's unfair that he's being treated like a huge racist just for saying what the rest of us were thinking but didn't want to say because we were afraid we’d be treated like huge racists."”

  • “Then again, John McCain also was light-skinned and didn't speak with a Negro dialect, so maybe there's some X factor Harry Reid is missing."”
