"The Nevada Democrat, in a sweeping set of accusations on the Senate floor, also compared health care foes to those who opposed women's suffrage and the civil rights movement -- even though it was Sen. Strom Thurmond, then a Democrat, who unsuccessfully tried to filibuster the Civil Rights Act of 1957 and it was Republicans who led the charge against slavery.
Senate Republicans on Monday called Reid's comments "offensive" and "unbelievable."
Unbelievable? Hardly, based upon Reid's tinhorn weasel history. He alluded to this same scurrilous slander back in November when the Senate voted 60-38 to start the debate on healthcare.
And speaking of history, Reid apparently is ignorant. The democrats were the party of slavery, the KKK, institutionalized racism and are currently the "bigotry of low expectations" party. Not to mention frequent torturers of logic.
