Little Davy Patterson has apparently learned that political success in a time of “crisis” actually demands more than being indolent and relying on the color of your skin to carry you through.  Unlike Obama, he doesn’t have a cult of personality to assure him that the Press will work diligently to marginalize adversaries and that union rent-a-mobs and thuggish czars will intimidate and extort corporate support that would not otherwise be freely given.  Nope, Davy thought that he had reached the political promised land where one’s disabilities and melanin content could trump skill and diligence. 

In some cases, the great political savior might have allowed him to run up the charge on his Race Card, but Little Davy forgot one important thing:  he doesn’t bring anything to the table for Obama.  Maybe if he wasn’t blind, Lil’ Davy might have taken note of the bodies that Dear Leader keeps chucking under the bus.  One would think that the constant “THUMP-THUMP” of it rolling under the bodies would have been too loud to ignore, but maybe Davy was distracted by the taxing duties he was full filling as Governor? One thing’s for certain:  the predictable play of a politician of color in political trouble.  (From the NYT)

Gov. David A. Paterson said on Friday that the chorus of people who believe he should not run for election next year want to keep him out of the race because he is black.

Yeah, I’m sure the character flaws and deep economic trouble your state is in have absolutely nothing to do with it at all, Davy.

“We’re not in the post-racial period,” said Mr. Paterson, according to an article posted on The Daily News Web site, which cited an interview the governor provided to a radio program hosted by Errol Louis, a Daily News columnist.

No No No No!  You’re doing it wrong, Davy. Have you learned nothing from Dear Leader?  You say wonderful things about a post-racial world while playing the Race Card.  No matter how cynical you might be on the subject, you never let the voting rubes hear you say anything negative yourself.  Its always your opponents who are afraid of a post-racial world who are to blame for your failure, not the lack of a postracial world.  If you let the voters know that there is no such thing because it isn’t to your advantage, then you will never be successful in using the Race Card.  Read the owners manual again.  The Wrong Reverends Jackson and Sharptongue did not go to the trouble of preparing a copy in braille for you to make such a hash of such a useful tool.

“My feeling is it’s being orchestrated, it’s a game, and people who pay attention know that,” he said.

Don’t prevaricate now, sparky.  You’re a professional politician.  You knowthat its orchestrated.  That’s how you rose to prominance in the first place.

“We have a media that doesn’t report the news. We have a media that wants to make the news.”

Conservatives have known this for years.  That’s why we’re ostracized as “wingnuts”.  Welcome to the wilderness, Davy.  Welcome to the wilderness.

Mr. Paterson — whose approval ratings and support even among fellow Democrats have dipped this year — also mentioned Deval L. Patrick, the Massachusetts governor and the country’s only other current black governor, and suggested that criticisms leveled against him are based on race.

Now that you have descended into the real world, where an honest analysis is possible, you might start to realize that faced with such monumental incompetence and arrogance in equal measure, with every charge of “Racism!”, another conservative simply laughs and says “Is that all you got?  Go ahead.  Say it again.  I can take it.  And you’re still unfit for office”.  And then another voice joins the chorus.  It isn’t enough for you politicians to put your fingers in your ears and say “Lalalalalalalala I can’t hear you!” anymore.  Each day brings new voices to our side, and soon the din will shake the ivory towers from which you deign to “rule”.

“The reality is the next victim on the list, and you can see it coming, is President Obama, who did nothing more than trying to reform a health care system,” Mr. Paterson said.

The reality is that with the audacious arrogance, and thinly-veiled contempt for the American people and America’s Heritage and birthright which he barely keeps in check, there is plenty enough for Obama to be victimized by.   The man is working up to a damn near cosmic karmic event, the kind that leaves nothing but a smoking crater.  Race doesn’t have to enter into it at all.  Sadly, since he did so much trading on it, if there is racial collateral damage, it will be his own doing, no one elses.
