Aw, how sweet. Looks like the minority dog-and-pony show for Harry Reid went off without a hitch.
Everyone sang from the “Hail, Harry” hymn book in acceptable dialect.
Bonnie Juniel, who came to the event to see Brazile, said she has been supporting Reid for 40 years and is ready to help get out the vote for him again, although she was disappointed in the language he used while speaking to the two authors of the book, “Game Change.”
“There hasn’t been anyone around that’s done a better job than him for Nevada. But he isn’t keeping up with the times. He still sounds like an old country boy,” Juniel said of the 70-year-old Reid.
Juniel said she was “utterly shocked” by his use of the word “Negro,” but she said she doesn’t hold it against him because she said other white people have said and thought the same thing.
“I think it was an innocent comment, but it shows he doesn’t have any serious dialogue with the African-American community and only knows black politicians,” she said. “If he had any real black friends, they would tell him, ‘Hey, Harry, don’t say that kind of shit.’ ”
