Really? Do Demos give repubs that kind of leeway when they have a "slip of the tongue"???
Senator Mary Landrieu
"...it's up to Senate Republicans to decide whether Lott should give up his leadership job. 'I can tell you if a Democratic leader said such a thing, they would not be allowed to keep their position...."
Senator Barbara Boxer
"His apology does not take away the sting of his divisive words, nor the pain inflicted on millions of African Americans under segregation...."
Senator Hillary Clinton
"Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York, said the GOP must decide whether Lott 'represents the views of the majority of Republicans in the Senate and in our country."
Senator Dianne Feinstein
"When connected to past comments and votes, this statement casts a dark shadow over Sen. Lott's ability to be a credible party leader..."
That is just a few as seen here, Reflections on Dem statements about Lott when Trent Lott made his statement and demo's jumped with both feet to get him thrown out of the leadership.
Should repubs start saying such things? Should we be questioning whether or not Reid's statement, and as of yesterday his declaration that was all he was going to say on the matter, does that reflect the sentiments of the demo senate as a whole? Doesn't Reid now cast a "dark shadow" over the ability of him to be a credible leader? Or is it just one giant double standard.
Stephen A. Smith said yesterday:

I think repubs should take a page out of the liberal playbook and hang this around their necks in neon!
is it racist to say that an American of Arabic descent would have a hard time getting elected to president if they looked very Arabic? Is it true?
That would depend on who is saying such things? Obviously as we saw with Joe Biden:
"In Delaware, the largest growth of population is Indian Americans, moving from India. You cannot go to a 7/11 or a Dunkiní Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. Iím not joking."

But if it were say Cheney that had said that, My goodness, the earth shattering whale would have been heard around the world......
Give us a break.
