Paladino Catches Break: "Rent is Too Damn High" Party Splits Demo Vote in NY
In case you missed the eloquence on display at the N.Y. gubernatorial debate, check out this:
Good thing they had the RITDHP in there, and the madam, and the Greens, and the Libertarians, the Freakerations, the Black Panthers, I mean, really, because Cuomo just skated. It was good comedy, but that's what deep blue insane asylums like NY do. Did Levi Johnson not get his NY residency in time to run? You have to laugh to keep from crying.
I see this as more fallout from what Sig was recently talking about -- a culture that values fame or notoriety for its own sake. People of substance need not apply ... the circus has come to town.
For sure, Paladino has made some campaign mistakes, which is too bad. It would be great to have him knocking heads in Albany. Lightning may strike, but it appears he is going down. In this year, though, where the conservative loses it will be because of turnovers, foibles, the Demo masquerading as a conservative, etc.
That is, again, we are winning the battle of ideas, and long-term the "Government is Too Damn Big" Party is going to be on the ascendency.
Make it happen.
