I said, ‘What we’re gonna do is turn Detroit into an Indian reservation, where we herd all the Indians into the city, build a fence around it, and then throw in the blankets and the corn.’” – Michigan GOP official L. Brooks Paterson, in an interview with the New Yorker. Paterson now says the reporter was out to get him.
