Kasich's Awkward Trip To Queens

John Kasich's folksiness doesn't play as well in the city.

All that "folksy charm" might not play in Queens the way it does in Ohio, but Kasich did his best to pander to Latinos during a visit to a pizzeria.

A young boy slid into Kasich's booth for a photo. Kasich struck up a conversation with his mother, who told him she was from Paraguay.

"I've never been to Paraguay," he said. "You're not going to believe this, but I've actually been to Uruguay. I went body surfing with the President of Uruguay!"

The governor, who had just proclaimed his love for hispanics, glanced around. "We got any more Latinos around?" he asked.

Just like that. Sort of like asking for some more peppers or cheese or something.
