Without a doubt, the unholy marriage of the Republican Party and the Tea Party means the extremists have more power and influence than at any time since the heyday of Barry Goldwater and I suspect even he would be bothered by how far out there some of these folks are.
It’s not enough to have a Rand Paul in Kentucky saying the 1964 Civil Rights Act was a mistake because private businesses should be allowed to racially discriminate or Christine “Bewitched” McDonnell who crusades against masturbation and admits that while she doesn’t put out on the first date, a little witchcraft is okie-dokie. Paul and O’Donnell aren’t even the biggest nuts running under the Republican banner. Last week, pictures surfaced of Rich Iott, some asshole here in Ohio who likes to dress up as a Nazi for WWII re-enactments. Aw, and it turns out John Boehner’s PAC had contributed to Iott’s campaign. Whoops. That’s embarrassing.
Then there’s Carl Paladino, the Tea Party candidate for governor in New York and one stone-cold crazy ass futhamucker.
At a speech where he denounced homosexuals and criticized his Democratic opponent, Andrew Cuomo for marching in a Gay Pride parade, Paladino said, “We must stop pandering to the pornographers and the perverts who seek to target our children and destroy their lives.”
It came out later that Paladino used to rent space in two of his buildings to–wait for it–gay night clubs.
It gets better (or a lot worse depending how you look at it).
Paladino told his wife he has a 10-year old love child. She said she was okay with it. Try that one on your wife and see how well that goes over.
Paladino forwarded racist and pornographic e-mails he received. How racist and pornographic? One picture featured President Obama and wife, Michelle as a pimp and prostitute. That one I can show you.
The other stuff, I wouldn’t dare unless I want Word Press to shut me down cold.
From Talking Points Memo:
• A December 2008 email showing a video of African tribesmen performing a traditional dance. The video is entitled “Obama Inauguration Rehearsal.”
• A September 2009 email entitled, “Easy Steady Big Fella….XXXX,” with a photograph that graphically depicts a horse having sex with a woman.
• A January 2010 email, containing a hardcore pornographic video entitled “Miss France 2008 Fucking.”
• A July 2009 email showing a photograph of an airplane landing directly behind a group of black men. The caption reads: “Holy Shit. run niggers, run!”
What kind of sick bastard do you have to be that you get off to a video of a woman copulating with a horse? Apparently, the kind of sick bastard that wants to be the next governor of New York. There is a website that has censored reproductions of some of the photos and videos Paladino has forwarded to his friends, but I’m not going to hotlink it. I don’t want to get anyone fired by going to a site that is NSFW in every sense of the word. Let’s just say if you’re really curious, plug in “Paladino” and “WNY Media” into a search engine and you’ll probably find out exactly what kind of kink and raunch Paladino likes to spank it to.
Crazy Carl shrugged it off saying, “Let he who has never opened a graphic image on their Internet cast the first stone.”
Sure thing, Carl. After all, what’s a little bestiality between friends? Except I don’t have any friends that creepy and sick and don’t want any.
Crazy Carl is down by 10 to 20 points to New York attorney general, Andrew Cuomo, the son of former governor, Mario Cuomo.
That’s all? A crank like Paladino should be sucking hind teat by at least 30 to 40 points!
Come on, New York! What the hell is your problem? Wake up and kick this bigoted pervert to the curb. I know Republicans want to win, but Jesus Christ, does that mean they’ll nominate and support a twisted little creep like this? Are they that hard up?
Somewhere, Ronald Reagan is shaking his head and thinking, “What happened to the Republican Party I knew and loved?”
It’s gone, gone, gonzo, Ronnie. Your party has been hijacked by bozos, sickos and weirdos. With the scurvy likes of Carl Paladino running under the Republican banner, the G.O.P. now stands for “Gross Old Perverts.”
