Since the media will ignore the connection, we’ll point it out for them.
The Nevada senator and Pacquiao are friendly; the boxer even campaigned for Reid during his tough 2010 re-election race.

We wonder how long it will be before Dingy Harry sends that down the memory hole?
Eight-time world boxing champion Manny Pacquiao has apologized after sparking outrage in the Philippines by saying gay people are “worse than animals.”
The 37-year-old, who is running for a seat in the country’s senate, made the remarks on a television program broadcast by Filipino station TV5.
Campaigning to secure one of 12 national seats he said: “It’s common sense. Will you see any animals where male is to male and female is to female?
“The animals are better. They know how to distinguish male from female. If we approve [of] male on male, female on female, then man is worse than animals.”
So the media’s going to mercilessly hound Reid about this now, right?
“I’m sorry for everyone who got hurt due to my comparison of gay people (homosexuals) to animals,” he said. “It was my mistake. Please forgive me for those who I’ve hurt.
“But this does not change my position against same sex marriage. That’s what I believe. My only mistake is comparing gay people to animals.”
Good luck with that.
