Here’s to you, Quentin Taranti … er, um, Rosa Parks. A 9-foot-tall statue of the civil rights icon was unveiled this morning in the U.S. Capitol building and, naturally, Harry Reid showed up to make the dedication extra special. He’s got such a knack for that sort of thing!
Don’t look now, but Harry Reid just referenced the movies “Lincoln” and “Django Unchained” during the Rosa Parks ceremony.

Let’s go to the videotape:
Ah yes. Of course! How better to highlight the quiet, peaceful dignity of Rosa Parks than to work in a little praise for a shoot-em-up revenge film? Nicely done, Harry!
Wait what? Did Reid just say Django unchained?…

Seriously? MT @rbpundit: Don’t look now, but Reid just referenced the movies “Lincoln” & “Django Unchained” during the Rosa Parks ceremony.

Harry Reid just cited Django Unchained in his speech at the Rosa Parks statue unveiling. Proceed, Majority Leader…

Yes. By all means, Harry, please proceed.
What was that about the complete and utter fusion of the Democratic Party and the entertainment industry?
