Sirius XM's Madison Invites Obama, Reid To 'Bourbon Summit'
January 11, 2010 at 12:03 PM (PT)
SIRIUS XM RADIO "THE POWER" Talk channel host JOE MADISON has jumped on the controversy over Senate Majority Leader HARRY REID's comments about then-candidate OBAMA's skin color and lack of "Negro dialect" by inviting REID and President OBAMA to a "Bourbon Summit" at his studio.
Parodying last yer's "Beer Summit" with OBAMA, Prof. HENRY LOUIS GATES, and the policeman with whom GATES had a run-in, MADISON has proposed a get-together in the wake of the revelations of REID's comments in the new book "GAME CHANGE," which chronicles the 2008 campaign with headline-making stories about OBAMA, REID, Secretary of State HILLARY CLINTON and her husband, SARAH PALIN, JOHN MCCAIN, and many others. REID apologized for the remarks, and OBAMA accepted the apology, although conservatives are calling for REID to step down from his Senate majority post.
"My preference is JOHNNY WALKER BLACK," MADISON said while extending the invitation to OBAMA and REID on the air TODAY.
