So the end of David Paterson's candidacy requires a meeting of black and latino politicians to do exactly what ?.......And if you read Liz' story you will see Harold Ford showed up and got 'em all mad by not joining Reverand Al's 'amen corner."
And look who is sitting next to Rev. Sharpton....Rep. Charles Rangel, with his freshly minted rebuke from the House Ethics Committee.
These are camp followers....they were all greasing the skids under Governor Paterson because they care not about the state's first black governor nearly as much as their desire to be close to power and not antagonize Andrew Cuomo.
Kudos to Harold Ford for going and pointing out the hypocritical orthodoxy of New York's master of identity politics.
