"It's unfair that he's being treated like a huge racist just for saying what the rest of us were thinking but didn't want to say because we were afraid we’d be treated like huge racists."

"Then again, John McCain also was light-skinned and didn't speak with a Negro dialect, so maybe there's some X factor Harry Reid is missing."
