Mark Halperin‘s and John Heilemann‘s new book Game Change

about the 2008 Presidential campaign is full of hilarious revelations.

Among these is the news that Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry

Reid listed among Barack Obama‘s electoral advantages that he was “light skinned” and had “no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.”

Reid quickly apologized for the comments and President Obama just as

quickly accepted his apology. Rightbloggers were less forgiving, which

is understandable: Obama’s race has been a sore point for the

anti-Obama movement, as was recently seen when a photo surfaced of Tea

Party activist Dale Robertson holding a sign with the word “Niggar” on it. The opportunity afforded by a top Democrat’s racially insensitive remarks to turn the tables was just too good to pass up.
