New York Governor Paterson Sees Through Caroline Kennedy!

By John W. Lillpop

Just when it seemed as though the world had gone completely wonky what with Barack Obama occupying the White House and Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid polluting Congress, New York's Governor David Paterson rushed in to save the day.

The legally blind Democrat (what in Hades is "illegally" blind?) let it be known that despite her name and money, Caroline Kennedy would NOT be replacing Hillary Clinton in the U.S. Senate.

Thus, we have the blind leading the sighted out of the wilderness of Liberal Lunacy into the sunshine of rational judgment.

As reported in the New York Post (1), in part:

"Caroline Kennedy tonight withdrew her name from consideration to replace Hillary Clinton in the U.S. Senate after learning that Gov. David Paterson wasn't going to choose her, The Post has learned.

"Kennedy's decision removes the highest-profile name in the ring to step into Clinton's now-vacant seat, as she departs after getting confirmed today as President Obama's Secretary of State."

So, who has Governor Paterson got his defective eyes on to fill this important seat?

In the Obama post-partisan era, this might work: George Allen, former U.S. Senator from Virginia, could become a carpet bagger, like Bobby Kennedy and Hillary Rodham Clinton from previous years, by moving to New York just to represent the state in the most deliberative body in the world.

Allen's conservative profile would counter-balance the leftist extremism coming from New York's remaining liberal menace, elitist Senator Charles Schumer.

A plea to Governor Paterson: Take this opportunity to bring real CHANGE to New York state by breaking free from the bondage of partisan bickering and pettiness.

In the name of tolerance, heed the clarion call and new vision from the brother in Washington, D.C., and deliver unto the United States Senate a healthy dose of new age diversity.

Do it in the name of Obamamania!
