It's pretty rare that I read something and do a double take with that "do I actually see this?" kind of puzzlement. But it did happen thanks to Bridgeport's semi-retarded Mayor Bill Finch.
Bill Finch is absolutely one of the dumbest people in Connecticut politics, and man... that's saying something. It is far easier to imagine him grunting out incorrect answers to a pop quiz on shapes and colors than it is to conceive of him managing the affairs of one of the state's largest cities.
Anyhow, I am sure the excitement of President Obama coming to town was just so overwhelming. But upon introducing the president on his recent visit to the city that smells like Bluefish, Finch blurted out "guess who's coming to dinner!"
The obvious reference to the title of the 1967 Sidney Poitier movie about a white couple, played by Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn, coming to terms with their daughter's intentions of marrying a black physician. The racial implications of the charged remark were enormous. And yet, the liberal press has given the moronic Finch a pass.
Can you imagine, for just a moment, that Governor Jodi Rell had ever introduced the President of the United States in such a way? The deafening charges of racism would make headlines for a week. But the mentally deficient Finch is willfully ignored.
Remarkably, that wasn't the dumbest thing Finch said. Before Obama took the stage he actually said that (after the economy collapsed "the cavalry marched in: Jim Himes and Barrack Obama!... The stimulus is working!"
Finch should take a look around his city and the rest of the state. The stimulus is a failure. Jim Himes is a failure. Barrack Obama is a failure. And Bill Finch is still stupid.
