Remember that cranky, crazy candidate who won the Republican primary for New York governor? The one with the racist and horse-fucking email-forwarding? Well, he's within six points of his opponent, Attorney General Andrew Cuomo. The world's gone mad.
Thank God you guys are finally covering this.
Carl Paladino is a madman. I'm seriously frightened about this election. Even if Andrew debates him - and I'm sure he could smack him down in the logic department - televising Carl's blustering and "mad as hell" act will probably just win over a wider audience than would have seen him before. I feel like I'm living in the background pages of a dystopian novel. This is how it all runs off the rails.
As a note, the man wants to set up work camps on the grounds of former prisons for welfare recipients. I just don't even understand. I feel it's my duty to point this out every time someone outside of WNY mentions him because I don't think it's getting much press elsewhere.
Terrifying. Absolutely, bone-chillingly terrifying.
