Harry Reid's Historical Stupidity

One of the reasons that Harry Reid doesn't deserve reelection is because of speeches like the following that he gave on the Senate floor on Monday:

Harry should have spent a little time researching his facts before giving such a speech. In the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, it was the southern Democrats that filibustered to block passage of that bill. In fact, the current longest serving Senator in the history of the Senate, Robert Byrd, a Democrat, occupied the Senate floor for 14 hours and 13 minutes to block that legislation. Harry would also be well-advised to remember that it was a Republican, Abraham Lincoln, who freed the slaves. Yet, despite this, the majority of the Black community continue to support the Democrats.

Harry Reid drafted his version of the Health Care Reform Bill behind closed doors and with "only" a few other selected Democrats working with him. There were absolutely no Republicans invited to this exclusive invitation only party. Why in the hell should any Republican fall in line with Harry when he did nothing but shun them. Harry is just stupid.
