Wow.

It’s going to be amazing to watch this guy go down in flames come November.

Feingold First Dem to Criticize Reid

Well, points for consistency for Russ.

Sen. Russ Feingold (Wis.) became the first Democrat to openly criticize Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) use of racially insensitive language and declined to endorse Reid’s continued tenure as Majority Leader.

In an interview with ABC affiliate WISN, Feingold criticized Reid’s characterization of President Barack Obama as “light-skinned” without “Negro dialect.” Feingold called those comments “unfortunate and racially insensitive.”

When asked whether he would call on Reid to step down, Feingold said he was still considering that option. “I’m thinking about that and we’re going to be getting together as a caucus next week and the topic will come up. I have not decided whether these comments merit that or not.

“They’re very unfortunate. They should have never been said. So, I need to think about it,” Feingold said.

Feingold is the only Democrat to criticize Reid, and his comments could severely undercut claims by Reid’s office and other top Democrats that the Majority Leader enjoys the full support of his Conference.

No word from the HerB.O.T. 5000 yet.

What “No Negro Dialect” Really Means

As always, from the genius of Chris Rock.  (NSFW, if speakers are loud)

Ironic, in the sense that Chris Rock is a huge Obama supporter.

Since He Keeps Asking…

The Chief, over there in Oshkosh has a series — now in its 6th part — asking “When are Wisconsin Conservative Bloggers Going to Finally Admonish Reince Priebus for the Way He’s Captaining the U.S.S. Micheal Steele?”  I’ll save him the time and trouble by simply saying:

Likely Never.

Here’s why.

Mr. Priebus and Mr. Steele are two different individuals, only one is RNC Chairman and only he can be responsible for his actions.  What you, “Mr Chief,” are asking would be akin to a conservative blogger in Wisconsin asking the liberal bloggers to admonish Mike Tate for all the dumb things he’s said in his term so far.  Or another liberal, like say this one…

On page 37, a remark, said “privately” by Sen. Harry Reid, about Barack Obama’s racial appeal. Though Reid would later say that he was neutral in the presidential race, the truth, the authors write, was that his

encouragement of Obama was unequivocal. He was wowed by Obama’s oratorical gifts and believed that the country was ready to embrace a black presidential candidate, especially one such as Obama — a “light-skinned” African American “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one,” as he said privately.  Reid was convinced, in fact, that Obama’s race would help him more than hurt him in a bid for the Democratic nomination.

Reid has since apologized and doing all he can to put the fire out on a Saturday (There’s even a statement from Al Sharpton telling us that saying all is forgiven.).  No word on if he’s said that Strom Thurmond would have made a good President.

I hear that sort of thing will cause a guy to resign his Senate Majority Leadership.

Though in all seriousness “JB,” you’re in Oshkosh, could you ask my brother’s old roommate  (That’d be Democratic Party of Wisconsin Vice Chairman Jef Hall in case you didn’t know) what he or DPW are going to say about the Reid remarks?

Senate Majority Leader Reid in Trouble in Nevada

Guess this is what you’d call ‘being Daschled.”

It’s the highest stakes ever for a Nevada election, and former boxer Sen. Harry Reid is on the ropes early. Either Republican Danny Tarkanian or Sue Lowden would knock out Reid in a general election, according to a recent poll of Nevada voters.

The results suggest the Democratic Senate majority leader will have to punch hard and often in order to retain his position as the most accomplished politician in state history, in terms of job status.

Nevadans favored Tarkanian over Reid 49 percent to 38 percent and Lowden over Reid 45 percent to 40 percent, according to the poll.

Reid’s status makes him an icon of the Democratic Party and ties him to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and President Barack Obama, both of whom are losing ground among centrist and right-leaning voters in the country.

Winning “becomes more difficult when you are actually the one having to carry the water for the president,” said Richard Davis, a professor of political science at Brigham Young University in Utah. “He (Reid) has got to get something out of the Obama administration that he can claim as his own.”
