I was listening to a Fox News interview this morning with Rev. Al Shakedown-Sharpton this morning as he tried to justify the pass provided to Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) It’s so obvious there is a double-standard between the way conservatives and liberals are treated when it comes to race.
I’m not going to say when then-Sen. Trent Lott (R- ) was acceptable, but don’t you dare try to justify when Vice President Biden or Reid said as “no big deal.”

I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” Biden said. “I mean, that’s a storybook, man.
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.
President Bill Clinton said…
[A]s Hillary bungled Caroline, Bill’s handling of Ted was even worse. The day after Iowa, he phoned Kennedy and pressed for an endorsement, making the case for his wife. But Bill then went on, belittling Obama in a manner that deeply offended Kennedy. Recounting the conversation later to a friend, Teddy fumed that Clinton had said, A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee.
Why is it always about race with politicians. Especially with the liberal ones?
