The one thing that struck me about similar observations of Sen. Reid's comments (i.e., impolitic, but accurate) was how one day during the O.J. Simpson murder trial, a witness testified that he heard someone (presumably Simpson) speak but didn't see the person; however, the witness testified that it was an African-American male from his "accent." Defense lawyer Johnnie Cochran was outraged and accused the witness of being a racist, because Cochran said there's no black accent.

Of course, I realize Cochran was just representing his client (and did so quite well), but still . . . .

Thanks Tung. I had forgotten all about that incident.
