Harry Reid: Totally In Touch with the 1960s

That Harry Reid is fairly out-of-touch with modern politics and the needs of the country and his party has been evident for awhile. Still, suggesting during the 2008 campaign that Obama had "no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one" really shows an offensive anachronism that makes his other outdated understandings of politics and culture seem harmless. Nothing will come of this, but it does serve as yet another example of why the Democrats need a newer, more in-touch leader at their helm to accomplish the things the party and its voters are by-and-large demanding.
