That's Carl Paladino, with one "L" -- and boy is he pissed!
A reader gently notes that we gave Buffalo businessman and Republican gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino too many L's in his name. So we went to double check. And boy, are we glad we did.
For one thing, we caught his latest video, which gets an R -- as in RAGE -- rating on the political tempers meter. For another, One-L Paladino has got a natural, lip-curling sneer that scares the bejesus out of you. Also, as he wastes no time letting you know, he's mad as hell. Some hi-lites:
- "There comes a time when enough is enough. We've allowed the unchecked growth of a parasitical ruling class in New York."
- "We empower, and even sacrifice, for a self-serving despicable government in Albany."
- "I will turn Albany upside down and take out the trash."
- "I'm prepared to spend up to $10 million of my own money to return control of our government to the people."
That last bit is the sweetest sound since the dinner bell was invented. Our advice is to stay safe -- don't get caught between this guy and the great many political consultants now storming toward his door.
