"Community Organizers" Come In All Colors

New York Governor David Paterson lashed out yesterday at the Republicans, calling them "racists" for making fun of Senator Barack Obama's vacuous "community organizer" entry on his resume. Since when has being called a "community organizer" become a code for racism, as Paterson asserts? Indeed, as pictures of the demonstrators at the Republican National Convention demonstrate, "community organizers" can come in all shapes and sizes -- and colors too. They just need to be left-wing and out to "organize" people to vote for Democrats -- hardly a qualification for a presidential candidate who claims he is a "unifier".

Please note: The postings of "G. Morris", written by John K. Bush and which end in 2016, stated his views as of the dates of posting and should not be understood as current assertions of his views. The postings, which have not been altered since they came to an end, remain on this blog to preserve the historical record. In 2017, Mr. Bush took a position that precludes further public political comments or endorsements. He will no longer be contributing to this blog.
