Dark comedy runs in this family

Sure we’ve heard the stories where hidden secrets discovered over a funeral or vacation begin to eat away at an already dysfunctional family. Playwright Matthew Posey has that covered in Morphing. They just don’t usually involve live music, dancing, a video performance, and a large man-eating puppet.Let’s not even get into the morphine addiction thrown into this show.

Carl Paladino Is The Real Victim In The ‘Dysfunctional Gays’ Saga

Carl Paladino says he is the one who's owed an apology, by "The Media," for attacking him over having the words "dysfunctional homosexual" in his speech script but never actually saying them. Yeah boyyy, play that victim card!

Adulterous GOP NY gov. candidate Paladino attacks gays for ‘targeting children’, says gays are ‘dysfunctional’ – oh, and he has a love-child

UPDATE: He has a love-child?  What a freaking hypocritical ass.

Great thing to say when we’re in the middle of a gay youth suicide epidemic, you bigoted ass.

“We must stop pandering to the pornographers and the perverts [he pronounces the word "per-VERTS"] who seek to target our children and destroy their lives. I didn’t march in the gay parade this year -the gay pride parade this year. My opponent did. And that’s not the example we should be showing our children…

“And don’t misquote me as wanting to hurt homosexual people in any way. That would be a dastardly lie. My approach is ‘live and let live.’ I just think my children and your children would be much better off and much more successful getting married and raising and raising a family, and I don’t want them brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality is an equally valid and successful option – it isn’t.”

And his prepared remarks also said the following, per the NYT:

“There is nothing to be proud of in being a dysfunctional homosexual.” But Mr. Paladino omitted that statement when he gave the speech.

NY’s GOP gubernatorial candidiate Carl Paladino: gays are dysfunctional

I can usually muster something pithy with a little tact when it comes to garbage like this, but I’m cramping like a mother so I’ll just say to Mr. Paladino: “f*ck you too.” Gay City News:

Paladino, an attorney and Buffalo real estate developer, met with Jewish leaders in the Brooklyn neighborhoods of Boro Park and Williamsburg on October 10.

During the Williamsburg appearance, a journalist from WNYC Radio reported that Paladino said, “I just think my children and your children would be much better off and much more successful getting married and raising a family, and I don’t want them brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality is an equally valid and successful option. It isn’t.”

The Daily News reported that Paladino said, “I didn’t march in the gay pride parade this year. My opponent did. There is nothing to be proud of in being a dysfunctional homosexual. That’s not how God created us, and that’s not the example that we should be showing our children, and certainly not in our schools.”

Andr?s Duque at Blabbeando has more details, including video.

First came a Tweet from journalist Azi Paybarah about four hours ago:

In williamsburg speech, @CarlPaladino says: “I don’t want [kids] brainwashed into thinking homosexuality is an equal valid…option” #nygov

Then the video Azi posted on his YouTube page to back up his Tweet (above)

Apparently, according to Capital Tonight’s Liz Benjamin, upset at being snubbed by a number of Hasidic Jewish leaders today, Paladino spent the day with ultra-homophobic Rabbi Yehuda Levin, and didn’t mince words.

I’ve not been following this race closely, but does he have a chance in hell of getting elected or are New Yorkers losing their grip on reality?

Since Carl has made headlines for forwarding bestiality pornography it begs the question, is bestiality something we should be showing our children, oh, keeper of good, American values?
