Just a quick weigh-in on the Reid controversy when he used the term “negro” during the last campaign (a word which is in this year’s census, I believe). Trent Lott was run out of town by making a poor choice of words. He shouldn’t have been, and it was embarrassing. Harry Reid’s policies are the real problem. If he spoke poorly, join the club and move on.
Many on the Left have a fixation with Politically Correct speech. It is a joke and hypocritical. Speak your mind and take your lumps. Then, move on — not as in Moveon.org — they represent the hypocrites.
