Our prickly president has added Frank Caprio, the Democrat running for governor of Rhode Island, to his snub list. Caprio’s opponent is Independent Lincoln Chafee, a serial snubber of his own former party – the Republicans. One such snub was Chafee’s endorsement of Obama in ’08. The President returned the favor on Monday by refusing to endorse Caprio. Hurt and humiliated, Caprio blurted that Obama can “take his endorsement and really shove it“.
Fear not, the unrequited candidate is already on the rebound. Politico reports this morning that Bill Clinton has swooped in with smooth and soothing words of endorsement. Caprio will now be making the rounds with the president the Donkey Party really loves.
