I could have used a better choice of words
That's part of Reid's comments/apology.

 

What would have been a better choice of words?

some things are stupid to say.

 

some things are said in confidence.

 

it was stupid for Reid to ever say those things to a reporter, off the record or otherwise.

the analysis is accurate though.

I'm sure if you have an honest discussion of the intangibles of any politician it might be awkward to have that discussion made public.

 

I'm sure how Sarah Palin looks in a skirt was factored in to McCain's decision to make her his running mate.

View PostEverything he said after "black presidential candidate" was stupid and in poor form. It smacks heartily of racism and bigotry. He'd have been fine if he'd have stopped there.

 

 

 

why?

tactically speaking he was right.

 

Obama is different than Jesse Jackson..

racism isn't an either/or proposition, it's a matter of degree,

and many people who WOULD NOT vote for a dark skinned Black man who had a lot of ethnic stereotypes in his character COULD vote for Obama who does not.

 

it's not easy to express this fact and not seem bigotted,

I was wondering about that. What did he pay for that education, do you know?
