N.Y. Gov Patterson Says He's Disliked Because of His Skin Color
The NY Daily News:
New York Governor David Paterson blamed a racist media Friday for trying to push him out of next year's election - launching into an angry rant that left even some black Democrats shaking their heads.
"The whole idea is to get me not to run in the primary," Paterson complained on a morning radio show hosted by Daily News columnist Errol Louis.
He suggested that Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, the country's only other African-American governor, also is under fire because of his race.
"We're not in the post-racial period," Paterson said.
"The reality is the next victim on the list - and you can see it coming - is President Barack Obama, who did nothing more than trying to reform a health care system."
Paterson said the campaign against him is being "orchestrated" by reporters who would rather make the news than report it.
But critics said the governor should blame his own blunders.
I don't pay that close of attention to NY politics, but does anyone know if Patterson has ever played the "Blame The Previous Administration Card?" That would be the very pious, religious, law-toeing Eliot Spitzer who resigned in disgrace after the news broke that he'd been patronizing prostitutes for nearly a decade. Well...you know...Those Good Olde Fashioned Democrat Family Values!
If what Patterson says is true, and if Pbama Cultists say it's true - that their political opponents dislike Patterson and the Cult Leader His Excellency Barack Hussein Obama, Junior , that it's because of their skin color - then it must also be true that The Left is racist for not liking Colin Powell (until he endorsed the Cult Leader), and Condoleezza Rice and Michael Steele, to name a few Black Conservatives, right? The Left also must be a collective bunch of racists because they don't like Black Conservatives. Or Black people who aren't Pbama Cultists.
What other explanation could there be?
Also, Kleagle (recruiter) and Exalted Cyclops of the KKK.
You know why people dislike Patterson? The truth?
It's because HE'S FUCKING BLIND!
That's a joke.
My bad. So bad....
