WASHINGTON - (PTSD News) - Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid lashed back at Republicans for attacking him for saying in 2008 that Barack Obama was more electable as a African American because he was light skinned and did not speak in a Negro dialect. Reid said, "Republicans are once again employing their patented fake outrage. What they're really upset about is that Democrats have started using words Republicans thought they owned."

"You can't let your political opposition frame every issue and own certain key code words," said George Lakoff author of Don't Think of an Elephant. "For far too long, the Democrats have allowed the Republicans have exclusive use of a word as important as Negro, which has put Democrats at a political disadvantage."

"How dare those those unoriginal copy-cat Democrats use the words like Negro dialect," said Fox's Bill O'Reilly. "I used it first when I said I was surprised Negroes at that Harlem soul food restaurant I visited didn't say things like 'pass the MF tea' and actually used utensils to eat." "The liberals are unprecedented in their hypocrisy," said Rush Limbaugh. "The next thing you know, they'll start calling a spade a spade by stealing my way of referring to the president as the Halfrican. That will take all the magic out of the Negro, if you know what I mean."

"Unlike those Democrat racists, we Republicans are not bigots about those people," said South Carolina Representative Lynn Westmoreland, "when it comes to uppity coloreds, we treat them the same whether they are light or dark skinned. Of course, we would have preferred if McCain and Palin had run against Flavor Flav instead of Obama."

President Obama forgave Reid for his remarks, saying the senator has always been on the right side of civil rights issues. "I can't believe that macaca president forgave Reid for his insensitive remarks," said former Virginia Senator George Allen. President Obama said he was actually pleased with the respect he as received from multinational corporations and the CIA. "They seem to be color blind when it comes to controlling whoever is in the White House," Obama said.
