"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".
