While addressing the NAACP in Cincinnati, Ohio, New York governor David Paterson suggested that “the defeat of Senator Obama by Senator McCain in the presidential contest would be a victory for racism.” You can find the story here. Governor Paterson, doesn’t that also suggest that voters who don’t support Senator Obama are racist? Come on! Do you really think that the citizens of this country are ignorant enough to only vote based on color and not on policy? If that isn’t enough from the great state of New York, their “distinguished” newspaper The New York Times has refused to in turn publish an op-ed piece for Senator McCain as they have done with Senator Barak Obama. You can link to that op-ed piece via my wife’s blog here.
New York, what gives?
