Harry Reid: Redskins should change name

By Bob Cusack
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said Wednesday that the Washington Redskins should change their name.
In an interview with The Hill, Reid said, “I think [Washington Redskins owner Dan] Snyder is so shortsighted on this.”
He added, “We live in a society where you can’t denigrate a race of people. And that’s what that is. I mean, you can’t have the Washington Blackskins. I think it’s so shortsighted.”
Earlier this year, Snyder said he would never change the name. Asked for comment, a spokesman for the Redskins referred to the letter Snyder wrote to the team's fans earlier this year on the name controversy
The three most powerful Democrats in Washington — President Obama, Reid and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) — have now urged the Redskins to rethink their mascot.
Pelosi told The Hill in October that it “probably would be a good idea if they change the name.”
Obama, meanwhile, told The Associated Press this fall that he would think about changing the name if he owned the team.
Reid noted that other sports teams have changed their controversial monikers, including the Washington Wizards. The professional basketball team used to be named the Washington Bullets.
Other members of Congress who have called for the Redskins to change their name include Reps. Tom Cole (R-Okla.) and Betty McCollum (D-Minn.) and Dels. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) and Eni Faleomavaega (D-American Samoa).


Whenever I hear the name “Harry Reid”, I get offended.  I bet a lot of other people do too.  It not only sounds like a porn star moniker, it causes images of stupidity to flash in my mind.  Here’s a few suggestions for what his new handle could be.  Feel free to add comments with your suggestions.

  2. Yeah... Hey, let's start a petition. I would bet it would get a ton of signatures. I think wonder britches sounds good. (I'm serious about the petition) I know there are a lot of free sites to do it.

    1. That's sounds interesting. Wouldn't it be funny if millions of people, more than the number that want the Redskins to change their name, demanded that Harry Reid change his name to something like Fairy Dweeb?

    1. Oh! There's the catch! I'm gonna have to do something. Even worse than that, I'm going to have to try to find out HOW to do something. What we have here is called "A glitch in the plan". Well, maybe, if I have time, I'll look into it, but I can't promise anything. Oh, wait! I can promise something. "If you like this idea, you will be able to use this idea." I'll have the petition up and running, and have 7 million people signed up by March 30th.
