Skip to comments.EDITORIAL: Colorblind Harry Reid continues to divide

Harry Reid is the da Vinci of distraction. The moment any scandal, policy failure or political defeat crashes down on him and there have been plenty the past few years the Senate majority leader unleashes outrageous rhetoric thats better suited for a sandbox than what once passed for the worlds greatest deliberative body. Worse, the Nevada Democrat has become especially fond of slinging race cards just to crank up the outrage.
Last week, Sen. Reid was in rare form following the U.S. Supreme Courts decision to overturn part of the Affordable Care Acts contraception mandate. The 5-4 ruling declared that closely held for-profit businesses, such as craft retailer Hobby Lobby, do not have to provide some forms of birth control to female employees if doing so violates the owners religious beliefs. Sen. Reid eviscerated the decision. The one thing we are going to do during this work period, sooner rather than later, is to ensure that womens lives are not determined by virtue of five white men, Sen. Reid said.
That Sen. Reid would inject race into criticism of a ruling with gender-based ramifications was bad enough. What made the comment far worse, however, was that it was completely false. Justice Clarence Thomas, who happens to be black, sided with the courts majority in the Hobby Lobby case.
Sen. Reids slip was no accident. He believes racial and ethnic minorities are ideologically monolithic constituencies who are incapable of independent or gasp! right-of-center thinking. In the majority leaders mind, Mr. Thomas is not an African-American because the justice doesnt blindly subscribe to liberal orthodoxy. . .

The Koch brothers made him do it!
Reid is a corrupt, slimy, old, diaper wearing little liar with no redeeming qualities.
And now here are some of his bad qualities -———
