RENO, NV-- Fighting off allegations of racism after insensitive remarked aimed at President Obama, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) pushed back hard with his civil rights credentials.
"I was one of the pioneers of the civil rights movement in Nevada." he said, "I co-authored legislation insuring equal rights. And why wouldn't I? I don't hate Negroes. I really like those people."
Despite the fact that his chief of staff told Reid not to hold a press conference, the Senator pushed on: "The real racists are the people who call me racists. Rush Limbaugh would own slaves if he could. Sarah Palin would go back even if she had black. Hell, Michael Steele would vote against the 13th Amendment if he could."
Reid also pointed out that he once 'left a really large tip' to a black waitress and even would be 'okay' with one of his sons dating "a Negress, providing she is of the light-skinned variety, of course."
Despite calls for his resignation, Reid refused to do so. "I am proud to hold one of the front seats in the Senate. Michael Steele and all of his kind can sit in the back where they belong."
