Oh come on!
I don't even know what he said. I really don't care either. I would like my side to be above tossing out the race card every time someone says something that might possibly have a double-meaning that could possibly be construed under just the right light (usually artificial) as "racist", or even makes an attempt at humor. I mean, we're different in some ways. Sometimes it's funny. Big deal.
If and only if this is being used to point out the double standard ... I'd be behind it. But let's make it clear that's what we're doing here.
Update: Apparently what we're hearing in the headlines and what the way the press is portraying Michael Steele's comments is (surprise!) wrong.
What he said was that if Trent Lott is the standard, then Harry Reid should resign. He didn't call for Reid's resignation at all.
I'm good with that.
