Paladino's Stink

Don't live in New York State? Be glad. In a survey NY ranked at the bottom of the list for happiness.

And really be happy that you're not on the mailing list for GOP gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino.

As I mentioned in a previous post, Paladino wants to revamp closed state prisons into education camps for welfare clients where they can learn new job skills and, just as importantly, good personal hygiene. For we all know that social services clients don't know how to bathe.

Apparently Paladino is on a roll with the bad smell motif because he recently sent out a mailer with the message, SOMETHING STINKS IN ALBANY. And to back up his point, the enclosed material gives off an unpleasant odor.

Paladino says he wants to clean up Albany, not with a broom but "with a baseball bat." Great. Al Capone's management style will really fix all the problems.

Need I add that Paladino is a Tea Party favorite?

Sometimes it seems like the Tea Party forget that their eponymous historical incident was merely protest and not actually governing. And then there's times when they make it clear that's all they have in mind.

Back in the old days "tea party" meant something else. Maybe the Tea Party should tea party and mellow out.

I've always thought they should have called it the Tea-Smoking Party.
