McCain Campaign Fumes Over Paterson's Racism Claim
N.Y. Governor Says Palin's Repeated Use Of 'Community Organizer' Is Another Way Of Saying 'Black'


ALBANY (CBS) ― On Monday, Gov. David Paterson angered some state lawmakers by comparing them to vampires, calling them a bunch of "blood suckers." On Tuesday, he raised eyebrows again, and tempers, by accusing the John McCain campaign of veiled racism.

I watched the video.

The Governor's assertion is ridiculous and will further hurt Obama.

Things are looking real desperate.

You know, that's about the stupidest thing I've heard this year, what that Governor said about "Community organizer" and "black". The only thing even more stupid I've heard was in a Dallas city council meeting when one councilman used the scientific term "black hole" (yes, the same as a collapsed star) when describing the city's budget and one of the other council members, a black man, demanded an apology saying that the use of the word "black" in "black hole" was racist.

It'll be interesting to see if Obama hangs on to this governor's endorsement or not.

You have got to be kidding me! So repeated use of Community Organizer is being racist?

Community Organizer's come in all shapes and colors maybe someone should tell that to the Governor of NY

Before Obama was in the state senate in IL. he was a Community Organizer How can this moron of a governor possibly take that as racism?

After all Governor Palin was only firing back at Obama for his belittling of her executive experience.

This sticks of desparation By the Dems
