After taking very strong offense at the New York Post trying to photograph the ten-year-old daughter he fathered during an extramarital affair, Carl Paladino whined, complained, and threatened, arguing that his love child should remain part of his private life and wasn't fair game in his race for governor.
And just to show that he believes what is good for the goose is good for the gander, we have complete faith in Carl Paladino that he will refrain from bringing up opponent Andrew Cuomo's two daughters during...oh wait, too late, he just did.
Paladino criticized Cuomo for taking his two daughters to the Gay Pride Parade, calling him a bad father, and according to the New York Post statingg that Cuomo "has already displayed his lack of interest in being a good father."
Of course, as usual with Paladino (remember the proof he had that Cuomo had an affair), he doesn't really offer any other examples of how Cuomo has displayed his lack of interest in being a good father other than taking his two girls to the Gay Pride Parade. However, we here at Pol Position have no option other than to believe him because why would Paladino make an outrageous statement like that without the facts to back it up?
Because he's Crazy Carl Paladino, that's why! Just when you think this race couldn't get any more unbelievable, it goes and gets a little more unbelievable.
The latest controversy surrounds comments Paladino made before a group of Hasidic Jewish leaders over the weekend, in which he stated that he didn't support gay marriage because he didn't want kids "brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality is an equally valid and successful option."
Those comments immediately drew denouncements not only from Democrats, but many of Paladino's fellow Republicans, many of whom called on him to apologize, especially given the recent rash of anti-gay attacks in the city.
Speaking of, politely put, “politically incorrect” comments (we had originally called them “screwball comments” but got overruled) delivered by Paladino since he won the Republican Primary, not you can get them in condensed format. Somebody, and of course by “somebody” we mean New York Democrats, put all of Paladino's greatest sound bites together in one 50-second video that you can watch on YouTube.
We have a feeling that Carl Paladino is going to be a frequent visitor to the pages of Pol Position for the next couple of weeks.
