In Conceding, David Krikorian Tries To Remain A Worst Person In The World

That is Democrat David Krikorian conceding in the OH-02 Democratic primary last night. Krikorian is now predicting that Jean Schmidt will win the race and even goes as far as to accusing his opponent of pulling the race card.

Let’s talk about that “race card” for a moment. The opponent Krikorian is talking about is Surya Yalamanchili, an Indian and former contestant on The Apprentice. Last week it was discovered that Krikorian said to a VFW crowd “do you think a guy with a name like that has a chance of ever being elected?” This led Krikorian to one of the harder feats in politics – being named Worst Person in the World by Keith Olbermann.

The story didn’t die there last Friday night. Instead Krikorian, who ran as an independent in 2008 as a “Reagan Conservative”, went into a full right wing style conspiracy defense:

KRIKORIAN: Keith Olbermann is a buffoon for not checking his sources, for not even bothering to check. But here’s one thing I will state for the record: Last night’s program was sponsored by Procter & Gamble’s Oil of Olay brand, which is the exact brand that Surya Yalamanchili worked for. So how did they cover that story last night? Because I’m sure that Keith Olbermann is not reading the Cincinnati press. So our folks think that the Oil of Olay brand people – Procter and Gamble in particular – were advancing their former employee. And that’s how it got in there. […]

I think [Olbermann] was reading from his script. So somehow that got put in there. And how did it get put in there? Well, look at the relationship between the story and the show’s sponsor. I think it’s pretty clear how it got in there.

This even led Proctor and Gamble to issue a statement denying the allegations and landed Krikorian another spot on Worst Persons Monday night.

Krikorian doesn’t think Yalamanchili can be elected to anything because of his last name. Well guess what David? He just won an election and the person he defeated was you!
