Does this guy have any shame? A bit of it?
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid today suggested Republican opposition to Debo Adegbile, President Obama’s nominee to lead the Justice Department civil rights division, was race based, indicating they opposed Adegbile because he is “an expert in civil rights” – and they want to deny civil rights:
I think that it’s a good time to have a discussion on civil rights. Republicans have done everything they can for a number of years now, trying to stop people from voting . . . Among the things that this good man was expert in is civil rights.
Reid excused the seven Democrats who opposed Adegbile, saying some of them voted against him because they saw he was going to lose.
