Pataki for Senate

Brother Geraghty notes that George Pataki might be running for the Senate. I’d rather he win than a Democrat — or at least any Democrat I can imagine New York State producing these days. But that won’t stop me from reiterating my view that he’s one of the dumbest politicians in America. I refer you (again) to my favorite idiotic quote from the former governor:

“It is conceivable,” George Pataki, declared in 2000 when he signed a hate-crimes bill into law, “that if this law had been in effect one hundred years ago, the greatest hate crime of all, the Holocaust, could have been avoided.”
