Lock up your livestock folks. Today, 'Kinky' Carl Paladino paid a visit to Batavia, NY to accept an endorsement from the Genesee County Republican Committee. For those who don't know, Palamino's..err....Paladino' previous 15 minutes of gubernatorial candidate fame came when wnymedia.net 's Alan Bedenko broke a story about one of 'Kinky' Carl's favorite pastimes. You see, Paladino derives some amusement from forwarding emails to just about everyone in his address book.
Now he's not your typical stupid joke/chain letter forwarder; no, he likes to send his friends videos of women performing sexual acts on horses. Go ahead, think about it for a minute. I'm not interested in describing the videos in detail, but I'm sure you can imagine.
My question today is simple: Why the hell would anyone endorse 'Kinky' Carl the Horse-Porn Man? Local republicans will tell you that he's a militant fiscal conservative who has promised to 'bring a baseball bat' with him to Albany. OK, I get it, folks around here want lower taxes and smaller government and they think that Tea Party candidates will bring it to them, but was there really no one else? Are you telling me that there isn't a single other rich white guy in the great state of New York willing to run for governor who wouldn't ogle your livestock with lascivious greed in his eyes? What does this all say about Rick Lazio's popularity?.
Well, the moral of this story is that Genesee County Republicans are continuing to marginalize themselves ideologically and that's fine with me. Soon enough, even the shithouse rats will be running for cover.
