Suddenly Harry Reid’s “Negro dialect” remark seems par for the course:
The Senate’s jobs bill, which passed a key procedural vote last night with the help of five Republicans, could do more than help people get back to work, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid suggested Monday — it could bring down the rate of domestic violence.
“I met with some people while I was home dealing with domestic abuse. It has gotten out of hand,” Reid said on the Senate floor, the Hill newspaper reports. “Why? Men don’t have jobs.”
Even though women are losing jobs as well, “women aren’t abusive, most of the time,” Reid said. “Men, when they’re out of work, tend to become abusive.”
Obviously Nevada ought to reelect the guy, just out of concern for the well-being and safety of Mrs. Reid.
