That's What Friends Are For
March 30th, 2006

In an effort to reach out for more voters, Democratic candidate for Governor Tom Suozzi posted on his Web site pictures of him and his ethnic friends. It even has a picture of Suozzi helping make matzohs in Brooklyn in the Jewish Friends section. Other friends included in the gallery are African American, Greek, Irish, Italian and Latino, most of them in the kind of outfits that people only wear in parades.

Missing from the list are the Asian friends. But it is common knowledge that Asian friends are difficult to find, especially for a political photo op. Just ask last years mayoral candidate, C. Virginia Fields.

    Hilarious. It’s apparent he doesn’t care much about the Asian vote.

    This is so exceedingly stupid, I’m going to vote against him just out of spite.

    Yeah, for a republician that’s understandable but for a democrat that is not wise. That is why the democratic party is goin down the toilet in NY.

    He’s a WASP wannabe. Check out his family photo album. Thinks he’s some yacht club heir.

    ROFLMAO! Good one Tommy! You nailed it. The guy is trying too hard. But not enough since he glaringly ignored the Asian community.

    I’m surprised he doesn’t have an Asian wife. Now how jacked would that be? Typical east coast racist white pandering to all minorities exept Asians.

    Ha, stupid suozzi still views us Asian-Americans as invisible people. I don’t live in New York, but I really pray that nobody in the Asian-American community vote for this bimbo. How can he leave us out? Shows what kind of committment this moron has for our community.

    Apparently he went to an APA meeting consisting entirely of South Asians, but he didn’t label it as “Asian Friends.” Oversight?

    What a tool! Eventhough, I’m a democrate, I still wouldn’t vote for this fool.
