Are you ready for a dose of injustice this morning? Ch-ch-ch-check out Obama, David Paterson and Jon Corzine’s Triangle of Racism, brought to you, straight up, from three-dimensional polygon of hip hop, RNC Chairman Michael Steele. See, Obama said that he would not encourage a certain black governor (David Paterson) to run for re-election, as David Paterson is historically unpopular with his own constituents. But Jon Corzine is just as hated by his own state (New Jersey—not even kidding), so why did Obama not include the white Jon Corzine in his grand total (1) of how many black governors he would tell to sit this one out??
The right thing to do here would be for Obama to support Paterson, because he is black, and also because what is best for all people everywhere would be to let Paterson run and be handily replaced by like, Rudy Giuliani or some non-hyperbolic equivalent. This is what would be best, for everyone really, but especially for Obama and especially for black people and Democrats.
“I found that to be stunning, that the White House would send word to one of only two black governors in the country not to run for re-election. And it just raised a curious point for me. I think … Gov. Paterson’s numbers are about the same as Gov. Corzine’s numbers, yet the president was with Gov. Corzine.”
Michael Steele… Michael Steele.
