OUCH: “RIN TIN TIN COULD BEAT PATERSON.” Obama was right to try to persuade him not to run. On the other hand, now that I think about it, I’d vote for Rin Tin Tin over a lot of incumbent politicians . . . .
UPDATE: Reader Matt Olson writes: “Paterson is neither a great candidate or an ideal governor but as a conservative I will say this: he is the only governor I’ve ever experienced in NY (I’m looking at you, Pataki) who was willing to say we are in the midst of a fiscal crisis and ACT like it, suggesting and following through on actual cuts in state expenditures even when it angers unions.” Well, no wonder they don’t want him to run.
