Paladino Calls Senator Gillibrand ‘Schumer’s Little Girl’
NY Times ^ | October 28, 2010 | MICHAEL BARBARO and DAVID W. CHEN

Posted on 10/29/2010 7:12:14 PM PDT by neverdem

There he goes again.

Carl P. Paladino, the Republican candidate for governor, promised he would be politically incorrect.

He wasn’t kidding. On Thursday, during a rally in Hicksville, N.Y., he called the state’s junior United States senator, Kirsten E. Gillibrand, “Schumer’s little girl.”

It was an apparent reference to Ms. Gillibrand’s close relationship with Senator Charles E. Schumer, but Mr. Paladino’s dismissive description of the only woman to hold statewide elected office in New York jolted the political world. His comments were reported on the Web site of Newsday and by NY1.

Mr. Paladino, a businessman from Buffalo, has previously landed in hot water for calling gay-pride parades “disgusting” and for forwarding racist emails to his friends.

His comments came as Mr. Paladino was campaigning for Ms. Gillibrand’s Republican opponent, Joseph DioGuardi. “It’s time to get some real representation in the New York delegation,” Mr. Paladino said on Thursday, “and you know Joe’s going to do that.”

A spokesman for Ms. Gillibrand declined to comment. MICHAEL BARBARO

Aiming at Virginia Guns

The last time Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg inserted himself into Virginia politics, he got branded a mobster. That hasn’t stopped him from getting involved again.

A year after Mr. Bloomberg, an independent, got into a spat over gun control with Bob McDonnell in Mr. McDonnell’s bid to become governor, Mr. Bloomberg’s nonprofit group, Americans United for Safe Streets, has produced an advertisement attacking another Virginia Republican. This time, the object of ire is Keith S. Fimian, who is challenging Rep. Gerald E. Connolly, a Democrat, in Northern Virginia, in a close race.

The ad is part of a push to press candidates or elected officials who have voiced opposition to or reluctance over closing a loophole allowing some vendors at gun shows to sell firearms without conducting instant background...

I knew (and agree) about the former, but I hadn't heard about any racist emails. Does anyone know about or have a link about the latter?

only woman to hold statewide elected office in New York

Hillery Clinton was elected, right? National senator is a statewide elected office?

There goes Paladino again, being a little loose with the truth. Gillibrand is anything but little.

I can remember the ceremony after Gov. Paterson picked Gillibrand to replace Hillary Clinton, Schumer said on stage w/Gillibrand, that Gillibrand would change her position on guns when she became U.S. senator.

She was AGAINST gun control as congresswoman, and I naively thought she was sincere, and was even going to call her office, and tell her not to let Schumer pressure her.

Schumer declared “her views would evolve” on gun control.

YES, Kirsten Gillibrand is surely Charles Schumer’s little girl!

Sorry for the lack of decorum. He should have called her a whore, a bitch, a witch and then stormed off the set of his own television show.

“Transcript: Sen. Schumer on ‘FOX News Sunday’
Sunday , January 25, 2009
snip

WALLACE: The new senator, Kirsten Gillibrand, gets a 100 percent rating from the National Rifle Association. She was the only Democrat in the New York delegation, congressional delegation, to vote against the $700 billion bailout. Is she really the best choice to be the senator from New York?
snip

SCHUMER: Her ADA rating, I think, was in the high 90s, strongly pro- choice, strong on gay rights. There are some issues where she would disagree with the majority of New Yorkers. Certainly with me, gun control is one of those. As you know, I was the sponsor of the Brady law and the assault weapons ban.

But let me say this. As Kirsten begins to represent the whole state, and she’s already downstate listening, you learn that the — you learn the damage that gun violence, for instance, causes in cities and that many of those guns come from out of state. So nothing the city or state can do on its own can stop that.”

Tell the NRA this is why the donations into their coffers have dropped off like one of the poor souls jumping out of the Twin Towers never to return. May God have mercy on their souls, the victims of 9/11, not the NRA.

I’ve had my doubts about Mr. Paladino for a while, but after hearing him on a teleconference townhall meeting today. I LOVE THIS MAN. He is us. He is straightforward, outspoken (which has gotten him in hot water) and a true conservative. I have never in my lifetime been excited about living in New York State. Often I have wondered why my family decided to move to New York State. . . Dutch settlers in the late 1600’s. . . owned lots of property.

Regarding the racist email. It seems early on in his campaign Paladino received an Obama cartoon or anti-Obama comments and forwarded them to his email list. (I believe that was the story out at the time. . . not 100% sure.) But, if it was really important and could have hurt his campaign, everyone would know exactly what was in the email. His emails, like Palin’s emails were hacked.

Paladino has given tons of money to a Christian soup kitchen (St. Luke’s in Buffalo) for over 10 years. He also employees over 400 people both black and white. The man is not racist.

The NRA also endorses incumbents, if both candidates have the same NRA rating, so the Dem incumbent, Scott Murphy, who won Gillibrand’s seat, got the NRA endorsement, even though his Republican opponent, Chris Gibson, also got an A rating.

People who don’t know that the NRA endorses INCUMBENTS will think that Chris Gibson, a decorated veteran, is not as strong on our 1st amendment rights.

Thankfully, though, Chris Gibson is 9 points ahead in the polls, and Bill Clinton is coming to the area to support Murphy. lol

Here's a clue, dweebs: He's not calling her a little girl out of misogyny, he's calling her that because she's Chuck U. Schumer's lackey. If she was a man and acted the same way the phrase would be "Schumer's little boy."

You are right. What’s more, it is actually a feminist comment on Paladino’s part, since women are supposed to act like women and not like little girls.

While Kirsten Gilliband’s opponent Joe DioGuardi supports hunting, he knows that the 2nd amendment is not ONLY about hunting. From his website:

“2nd Amendment

The Second Amendment clearly protects an individual’s right to “keep and bear arms,” and as such, grants law-abiding citizens the right of gun ownership. In upholding the Second Amendment, we preserve the inalienable right to self-defense as well as protect the numerous hunting traditions so many New Yorkers enjoy.

I will always defend the Constitution and make certain that the commonsense provisions enshrined by the words of our Founding Fathers are diligently and properly upheld in the U.S. Senate”

DioGuardi gets it!

Paladino should do well with my family and friends. I don’t know about my neighbors, we only wave to each other. Not much talking as we don’t live close. I live in a WNY suburb and there are a lot of Paladino signs and I’d say he has a lot of support around this town.

dont even waste your time- it does not matter in the grand scheme- Carl received some admittedly racist jokes in the email and forwarded them to some so-called ‘friends’. He admitted it and apologized. I mean it’s not like he raped a campaign supporter or anything (that would be Bill Clinton) or caused the $800 billion dollar housing melt down (andrew Cuomo)

I dont even want to bring up that issue again when ANDREW CUOMO is getting away with hiding his involvement at HUD, with 3 days left in this election

It’s crunch time, and if you don’t have time to volunteer, another way to support Paladino, DioGuardi and other pro-life, conservative candidates, might be to post about them on the posting boards in your home-town newspaper. That’s what I do.
