Carl Paladino Is Backtracking

...because he kind of has to. After the video of him, errr, chatting, with a New York Post reporter surfaced, and given the, errr, conversation, that took place, Paladino is making some much-needed clarifications:
The Buffalo News reports that Paladino now says he wasn't threatening Dicker. The term "taking out," he explained, is part of his campaign slogan, as in he's "taking out the governor . . . taking out the trash."

Paladino also said he is not accusing Cuomo of having had an extramarital affair. He said that he has been subjected to so many questions about his personal life that he wonders whether the media is posing the same questions to Cuomo.
Rrrrrright. I suppose it all depends on what the definition of "taking" is...
