Harry Reid Flubbing Senate Appointment Battle

Give Rod Blagojevich credit, he knows politics. His back is to the wall, so he pulls out a big ol' race card and appoints a black man to the open Senate seat vacated by Barack Obama. This puts the Senate and its leader Harry Reid in the position of having to deny a black man a Senate seat. Add on Bobby Rush saying that to do so would be akin to George Wallace. Awesome.

Now we find out that Harry Reid was doing some lobbying of his own with the corrupt governor, pushing two candidates for the seats, two white candidates.

This is what happens when you make identity politics job one. Lucky for Dingy Harry he's a Democrat and he'll get away with it.
