    Yes, it's hardly unusual for Republican politicians to say racist or otherwise extreme things, but this is New York State, and not even that far from the city. I know there are actually a lot of racists here, and we had one for Mayor quite recently, who swore by a policy of systematically harassing and persecuting young black men ("stop and frisk"). But I still find this shocking. I don't think someone using such blatantly racist language is likely to be elected in Dutchess County.
