Here in our fair state of New York, there are two individuals nominated to take over as Governor this fall once Governor Patterson's term comes to an end: Democratic candidate and State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, and Tea Party Republican Candidate Carl Paladino. Now this cat Paladino has been known here in New York for sending e-mails using the word "nigger" in a disrespectful way (is there really any other way?); telling an entire classroom of Black students that a certain Black professor only got his job "because he was black" even though the professor in question is highly educated and well qualified for the position, and has been quoted as saying "Obamacare will be so horrific that it will kill more Americans through deteriorating health care than were lost on 9/11," and the list goes on and on. Not exactly a guy you would expect to be in charge of one of the most culturally diverse states in America. (For a more in-depth take on Paladino from New York's Black Leadership CLICK HERE).
In any event, this guy Paladino apparently has somewhat of a hot temper as well. A New York Post reporter confronted him recently about a daughter Paladino has from an extra-marital affair and Paladino went off and told the reporter that if he sent any more reporters to his (Paladino's) dauther's house that Paladino would "Take [him] out, Buddy!" (BTW, for those of you outside of NY, the New York Post is not exactly a liberal publicaion - in fact you could say the Post is effectively the Fox News of NY Newspapers). See video after the jump:
