Frank Caprio (D CAND, RI-GOV), racist.

Well… if by ‘racist’ you mean ‘insufficiently respectful towards the President,’ which I understand is how the Democrats define the term these days.  Caprio is a little upset that President Obama isn’t endorsing him in what is turning out to be a very close gubernatorial election between him and ‘independent’ Lincoln Chafee.  So in classic sour-grapes fashion Caprio has decided that he doesn’t want Obama’s help, after all: “[Obama] can take his endorsement and really shove it as far as I am concerned.”

…which is, of course, utter nonsense: the race is currently in free-fall, and the Democrat needs all the help that he can get.  Caprio’s problem is that the President would rather have a reliable ‘independent’ in RI to burnish the President’s ‘centrist’ street credit in 2012; and Chafee’s certainly more reliably Obama’s creature than he ever was a reliable Republican.  Actually, Caprio has two problems: the second is that Obama’s traveling to Rhode Island to fundraise for the DCCC (and maybe try to keep John Loughlin from taking RI-01)… and in the house of a Chafee supporter, no less.

I’d be sympathetic, except that Caprio’s a Democratic politician, so I don’t feel like it.  Still: regretting those Clinton connections yet, Frank?

PS: John Robitaille is the Republican nominee in this race, and he could use your help.  And it’s surprising that more national-level Chafee-loathers aren’t helping out John, here…
