    Readers of Rupert Murdoch's New York Post could be forgiven this week for wondering what happened to the paper they thought they knew: For two days in a row, the tabloid used its front-page to take aim at Carl Paladino, the Tea Party-backed Republican gubernatorial candidate, for his recent anti-gay remarks.

    Suddenly, gay-baiting offends Rupert Murdoch - 2010 Elections News | Midterm Elections: Senators, Governors

    Carl Paladino likes to point to his gay nephew, Jeff Hannon, as evidence that he’s no homophobe. That’s funny, because Jeff Hannon seems to think Carl Paladino is a homophobe, as the 23-year-old has stopped showing up to work at the Paladino campaign

    New York Republican gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino, who has spent the week fending off accusations that he is anti-gay, once collected rent from two gay clubs located in buildings he owned in downtown Buffalo, according to a published report.

    Cobalt, one of the two clubs, operated as a gay bar in 2004 and most of 2005 and was run by Paladino’s son, William, the Daily News reported Wednesday, citing state liquor board records. It was housed in a building owned by one of Paladino’s many companies, Huron Group LLC, the newspaper said. The club was run under another corporate name.

    ---------------------------------

    I love these right wingers on the USMB. "WE ARE NOT ANTI-GAY AND YOU CAN'T PROVE WE ARE!".

    Then you get one Republican Politician after another making anti gay statements. Do they know who represents them? Is it denial? Can someone explain it?

    Democrats are gay out of their minds.

    Please provide the quote from Paladino stating that he 'hates' gays. 94% of scientists agree that disapproval does not equate to 'hate'.

    6% of scientists believe that rdean is an intelligent poster.

    In observing Paladino, it appears he hates everyone

    I haven't seen anyone this continually angry since Nancy Grace

    I'm not interested in 'appearance', I'm interested in fact. Honestly, all this constant whining about who 'hates' who is beyond pathetic.

    Calling names and insisting we block civil rights for the good of the nation is not showing love.

    Does everything have to be "explained". You would think the obvious is, well, obvious.

    It's like a right winger saying "I don't hate that person, I just want them lynched". Ooh, he just wants them to be second class citizens. He didn't say he wants them dead. Rdean, you are over the top.

    If Hannibal Lecter were the Dem candidate, Paladino would only have a slim chance at best.

    "Sure he eats people, but he's a Democrat and that's good enough for me and every one else in this section of St Raymond's cemetery!" -- Betty Shannon, loyal Democrat voter for the past 165 years.

    Paladino may be an idiot but look at the mess the Dems have made of the state all by themselves

    Yep.

    That damn Democratic Governor George Pataki and Damn Democratic Mayor Rudolf Giuliani. Those suckers really screwed the pooch. And then New Yorkers..elected ANOTHER democrat..sheesh...Michael Bloomberg. If only the Republicans had a lock on the state..it would be fiscally sound. [/sarcasm]
