I love the Tea Party. It’s the best thing to happen to politics since Barry Goldwater ripped the GOP to shreds over Civil Rights. Carl Paladino won as the Tea Party backed GOP nominee for governor of New York, and he’s mad as hell.
“It’s not necessarily anger, it’s an intensity,” Paladino told NY1 last night. “I am speaking out for a lot of New Yorkers and they are aggravated.”
What’s he going to do if he becomes New York’s next governor?
“We are going to take out entire agencies, we are going to take out entire departments and divisions of agencies. Government for the sake of government will end,” Paladino explained to NY1’s Elizabeth Kaledin.
He said, this isn’t a “tweak job,” he’s not going to nibble around the edges, he will gut the government like a deer that’s been shot through the neck. He didn’t mention the deer analogy, but he would have if he had thought of it.
Kaledin asked if he felt this type of rhetoric might be threatening to some people, and Paladino said, “They should be threatened. Absolutely. I want them to be threatened. … The people are going to vote for Carl Paladino. The people will look at my essence.”
