Of course Paladino is pissed off...he could barely put together a coherent sentence during the debate; he stumbled, bumbled, and wandered through his usual meaningless rhetoric without any semblance of a real plan or direction. He sat, slumped in his chair with an expression of cluelessness on his face, as though he suddenly realized that he isn't qualified to be Governor.

Paladino even got up to take a leak during the debate! He just got up and left while the other candidates were talking. What a chooch!

Now, Paladino blames his abysmal performance on the debate's-format, as though he would've cleaned Cuomo's clock had the debate been run differently.

So what if he stumbled, bumbled, and wandered throughout his answers. It was no surprise. That's what he's been doing throughout his campaign. But, Cuomo has refused debates over and over again. Doesn't that make you scratch your head and wonder why he refuses to talk about the issues. Just the same old thing - a bunch of rehearsed speeches, a few town hall meetings, public appearances, and that's it. They should have more debates. Paladino's right, for the 1st time...

I'm no great fan of Andrew Cuomo, but he clearly demonstrated that he is the only one on that stage with the temperment and experience to be Governor.

We don't need to sit through the painful process of watching Carl Paladino search for words and ramble on without making a coherent point.

Hey, don't steal my name!

And the only one up there who might be able to both bring change to Albany (Cuomo isn't going to do it) and be reasonable that I saw in that debate was the Libertarian, Warren Redlich. Cuomo will be more of the same, and if he runs the state like he ran HUD (I was consulting there when he was running the place for Clinton) we are all in a lot of trouble.

I didn't steal your name. It's the truth. The truth hurts, doesn't it?

Your last post was dead on. I couldn't agree more. With Cuomo, we're not going to see any change. It's still going to be same political game up there with him - I scratch your back, you scratch mine. Too bad my fiance doesn't agree to that game. We need a fresh face, a game-changer, in a big political seat. Warren Reldich sounds like he would be that guy, but there is no way in hell he's winning anything.
