Paladino and O'Donnell must go away: For these two Tea Partyers, amateur hour just drags on and on
Paladino's campaign was a parody of a disaster. At least Rick Lazio would have tried to run a race. The biggest arguement against him was the ton of money he wasted on consultants.
Given that many Democrats who know him don't like Andrew Cuomo and many were willing to say so and further given that Cuomo was present at the creation of the Community Reinvestment Act subprime mortgage fraud that melted the economy he should have been vulnerable in this of all years. The Republicans in NY are trapped in a cycle of older self funding vanity candidates and underage resume builders content to get 20% of the vote.
Christine O'Donnell never struck me as that bad. The very vulgarity of the offensive against her, a cable comedian charging her with having been a High School student?, made her seem sympathetic to me.
