Carl Paladino: Still "Not Intimidatable", In striking distance of Cuomo



Poll shows a surprisingly tight race for Governor between Cuomo and Paladino
By Dave Bullard/WRVO (2010-09-22)

WRVO (WRVO) - Surprising. Shocking. Amazing.

Those were the reactions to Wednesday's Quinnipiac University poll that shows Democrat Andrew Cuomo holding only a six point lead over Republican Carl Paladino.

In fact, those were the reactions of the pollster.

Quinipiac's Mickey Carroll told reporters that when he first saw the numbers, he asked the staff to check them again.

The poll shows each man carrying his party's voters easily, but showed Paladino doing better than Cuomo with independent voters.

"People might have sort of inferentially thought, 'Hey, he's the incumbent'", Carroll said. "They know he's not but he had the aura of an incumbent. And the one thing you do't want to be in a throw-the-bums-out year is an incumbent"

Carroll believes Paladino will keep on trying to get under Cuomo's skin with intentionally provocative remarks and insults and thinks Cuomo is smart enough to figure out how not to fall into a trap.

Siena College's Polling Institute issues its poll on the Governor's race tomorrow. Marist College is also preparing a poll.

  2. Paladino faces backlash over racist emails, anti-abortion remarks

    CBS/6... a coalition of pro-choice and women's organizations released its own email blasting Paladino for his remarks on CNN last Wednesday in which he said he opposed abortion even in the cast of rape and incest. [CNN]

    "New York is an overwhelmingly pro-choice state and Carl Paladino's victory in the Republican Primary is deeply concerning for the women of New York," reads the open letter, signed by various Planned Parenthood leaders and CEOs, state Senators, state Assembly members and other activists. "During his interview it became clear that Mr. Paladino is one of the most anti-woman candidates for governor - either Democrat or Republican - that the state has seen in a generation."


    Carl Paladino is against legalized abortion in ALL cases, including rape and incest.
    Pro-Life, the corner stone of the Tea Party movement.

    Bloomberg backs Cuomo

    NEW YORK -- New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has endorsed Democrat Andrew Cuomo in the New York governor's race, and Cuomo says he is taking a new poll with "a grain of salt."

    Bloomberg says that Cuomo, the state attorney general, is best equipped to fix problems in Albany. The popular billionaire mayor is a Democrat-turned-Republican-turned independent.

  4. Lazio mulls GOP leaders' pressure to quit

    ALBANY -- State Conservative Party Chairman Michael Long says he's discussing whether Rick Lazio, the party nominee, will drop out of the governor's race to consolidate forces behind Carl Paladino, the tea party Republican who won last week's primary.

    Long says he doesn't know if Lazio will announce his decision Wednesday when he speaks at a gathering of newspaper editors during the New York Associated Press annual meeting near Albany. He says he expects more discussions with Lazio later in the day before they decide.

  12. "The conduct of the Israeli military and other personnel towards the flotilla passengers was not only disproportionate to the occasion but demonstrated levels of totally unnecessary and incredible violence. It betrayed an unacceptable level of brutality. Such conduct cannot be justified or condoned on security or any other grounds. It constituted grave violations of human rights law and international humanitarian law."

    The panel concluded that there was "clear evidence" of wilful killing, torture or inhuman treatment and wilfully causing great suffering or serious injury to body or health – all crimes under the Geneva Convention.

  18. (CNN)- According to a CNN/Time/Opinion Research Corporation poll released Wednesday, 55 percent of likely voters in Delaware say that they are backing Democratic Senate nominee Chris Coons, with 39 percent saying they support GOP nominee Christine O'Donnell.

  22. My first girlfriend is now on her fifth husband, according to latest reports.

    And in heaven, just whose husband shall she be?

    Perhaps mine? As I had her first? Even though unmarried. What a chukar she was.

    There is no marrying or giving in marriage there, Jesus said, but rather they are like the angels in heaven.

    Blake however contradicted this, and maintained that relations there were not like here, in this fallen world, where a Pompous High Priest enters by a Secret Place, but rather sex is a comingling from head to toe, face to face. I like the sounds of that. These old tunes bring about such thoughts.

  27. Early in her career Whitney Houston was criticized for her lack of 'vocalization'. In her case, she has a powerhouse voice but sterile, lacking in The Spark. Last I heard the jury is still out, but Houston has made progress. She'll never be Frank Sinatra, but progress.

    Anyway here's the group that made Last Kiss a hit:

    J Frank Wilson and the Cavaliers

    The original is not bad, but I think Pearl Jam wins on vocalization - and musicality.

  28. I remember lying flat on my back at the bottom of a sailboat with my first real bad experience with back pain. All these old folk (I was at a yacht club) came up full of pity and with a mitt full of pain killers. I was astounded by 1.) the reflexive sharing of prescription drugs and 2.) the "Only those who have experienced the debilitating pain of a bad back can really appreciate the grief you are going through" meme.

    Quirk, I'm guessing, is off receiving treatment for his fall. Just my guess, but there ya go.



    p.s. My primary defense to back pain is to really work hard on core strength - sit-ups (well crunches) being my first attempt to fight the first glimmer of lower back pain/strain. Ideally one does regular exercise all the time. Oh, ya, tight hamstrings also contribute mightily to lower back troubles.

    Stabilty, doug –the lower the plug, the less chance of expanding gas migrating upward and at some point in the future possibly contaminating lower pore-pressure permeable strata above, or even erupting again in the vicinity.

    They could have produced it, but no production infrastructure was in place or even planned yet –indeed, the rig was in process of a p&a when it blew. The system of transpoirt to shore on a wildcat can’t be determined in ocean offshore drilling until one or several offset wells are drilled and the strike is confirmed a ‘field’ and the reservoir is ‘mapped’.

    Takes years, often.

    That’s the point the lefty don’t get –they think the whole process is like an on-off switch, with all the heavy talent and experience needed just standing around in a union hall waiting. Hint –they ain’t.

    The dispersant, a surfactant and penetrating solvent named “Corexit 9500″ or somesuch –is scaring the living daylights out of a lot of coastal residents. Reports of skin lesions, Morgellon’s Disease, all sorts of crazy stuff. The company that makes it, Nalco, from a Chicago burb, was started up only in 2005 or so, with the far and away two biggest investors, Berkshire and JPM, also far and away the biggest beneficiaries of the financial crash of 08, –friends of Obama, warren buffet and jami dimon. I dunno what’s far fetched anymore, but the Nalco bit probably qualifies –but the point is, the stories are going around in the GOM zone, destroying trust, destroying trust in the ‘English’ –as the old cajuns call us.
