You Stay Classy, George!

Former New York governor and still-a-huge-buffoon George Pataki, who I hadn't seen in public since he blamed Bill Clinton for 9/11 in his '04 RNC address, spoke at an RNC event this week and had this to say:

Do we have anybody from Tennessee here?” Pataki said as he opened his speech. “You know, you beat Al Gore in 2000. And if you beat Al Gore in 2000 you sure as heck can beat Os …” The former governor paused, seemingly for effect. “… Oh … Obama in 2008.” The line, delivered in Pataki’s familiar deadpan, appeared to be meant as a joke, and the audience took it as one, laughing, whistling and clapping.
Obama/Osama jokes? Really?
