Carl Paladino Is 'Stepping On' His Message

Folks love a good train wreck:
Paladino has had a rocky week on the campaign trail, dating back, he said during an interview today, to a public forum on Oct. 5 in which he called the powerful state Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver a “crook.”

The situation was further complicated over the weekend when a Paladino staffer provided the press with prepared remarks for a speech that included a line calling homosexuals “dysfunctional.” Paladino did not deliver the remark, but the prepared text was reported and has plagued the Republican's campaign since.

Asked how the events have affected his campaign during a radio interview Tuesday on New York’s WOR, Paladino said, “I definitely stepped on my message in the last two weeks, twice.”
Gee Carl, you think so?

Maybe you should listen to your campaign advisers...
