Atwater Village 'Community Organizer' Takes on Palin

ATWATER VILLAGE Neighborhood Council rep (and Atwater Village is for Lovers blogger) Leonora Gershman slaps back:
"One of the most infuriating aspects of watching the Republican National Convention, and there were many, was hearing the dripping and sour disdain that Sarah Palin and Rudy Giuliani apparently have for Community Organizers. I am a community volunteer here in Atwater Village. To hear Sarah Palin say that community organizers don't have responsibilities was a slap in the face to every public servant in America."
Leonora politely allows Republicans to maintain their glaring inconsistency of preaching smaller government while praising government positions ("mayor of my hometown") over nongovernmental activism ("community organizer").

and don't forget that, as the blogosphere has been saying many times over, Jesus was a community organizer and Pontius Pilate was . . . a governor.
