Reid versus Blagojevich, a heavyweight battle in stupidity

OK, at least the former governor of Illinois admits it, but still, I can't believe it.
Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nevada, apparently discussed Obama's skin color and accent in assessing the then-candidate in a private discussion, something that has come up in a book.
Nowadays, letting anything about race come out of your mouth is a bad idea, so I'm not saying Reid was right. 
However, in terms of stupidity, I think the former governor wins this one, partially giving him the victory based on his prior problems and figuring that saying such a thing makes him more reality TV personality than a true political player.
