Democrat Wins NY-26

If you were paying attention to New York state politics last year, you might remember a fellow named Carl Paladino.

Carl Paladino Ad Falls Short on Substance

Carl Paladino dropped tens of thousands of dollars to buy 3 minutes of TV air time to run an ad that said nothing new.

Carl Paladino Says Voters Will ‘Look at my Essence’

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… Read more »

Will Republicans Elect This guy as Their Nominee for Governor?

The available evidence is that Carl Paladino is a racist sexist pig. In April, WNYmedia.net published a treasure trove of e-mail messages Paladino sent depicting bestiality, straight up porn and racist videos portraying Obama as a monkey.
