Quote du jour

What was often left unmentioned in Reid’s now much-publicized racial gaffe was not just his editorializing on skin color and dialect, but his allegation of cynicism on the part of Obama, highlighted by the qualifier in “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one,” which suggests that Reid thought the Hawaiian-raised Obama inauthentically switched dialects to fit his audience.

-Victor Davis Hanson
