Two ‘Wongs’ don’t make it right, Harry

Well, there he goes again — Harry Reid caught on tape making another racial cringe-worthy statement.

This time he’s at the Las Vegas Asian Chamber of Commerce saying: “One problem that I’ve had today is keeping my Wongs straight.”

Let’s give Harry Reid a slow clap. I think I speak for most Nevadans when I say: “What the hell is wrong with you, Harry?”

Within an hour after the posting of this blog item and Reid’s video went viral, the senator’s office released this statement: “My comments were in extremely poor taste and I apologize. Sometimes I say the wrong thing.” Wrong thing? Hell, he almost did it again.
