— DrewM Maine? Fuggetabout it. NY is the place with a crazy candidate starting a fight.
Apparently this has something to do with Paladino charging that Andrew Cuomo has an illegitimate daughter or was unfaithful to his ex-wife (more on that here). Paladino has acknowledge he has a 10 year old daughter with a woman other than his long time wife.
I knew Dicker a bit back when I was in college and interned at a TV station that he appeared on regularly. He's an old school reporter who doesn't really like anyone, though if anything he seemed to lean a bit to the right (at least on spending and open government issues). Plus, he writes for the NY Post, not exactly a hotbed of liberalism in NY.
Dicker pretty much takes on whoever is in power. The idea that he's a shill for Cuomo strikes me as pretty silly (maybe not, see update). That said, he's not going to go printing unsubstantiated crap on a Republicans behalf either.
I know people love Paladino's fighting style but it's a thin line between that and an irresponsible loose cannon. I think if you are going to charge someone else with the sin you committed, you better provide the evidence at that time.
UPDATE: I have to admit, I haven't read Dicker much lately but after going through some of his recent columns, he does seem to be backing Cuomo.
I wouldn't cross the street to piss on him if he was on fire.

The reporter was over the top, but I'm not gonna defend every thin-skinned pol with an R next to his name.
Better to watch this from a distance.

Something the state media tends to do a lot to conservative politicians.
Remember when Letterman was "joking" about Palin's younger daughter being raped?

I'll take a loose cannon over an Obama lovin', card carrying Marxist any day. If he's a bit quirky, I'm OK with that.
I simply detest Democrat/Alinsky/Stalinists. If you're into witchcraft and you're not the wicked witch of the west, and by that I mean San Francisco, I'm your wingman.

A lot of people in NY are intimidated by the Dem machine into saying what is expected. I know a lot of them, including some union ones who say what needs to be said but will definitley vote republican. It's a shame to have to be that fearful of taking Cuomo on. Paladino is one who is NOT afraid of anything. Some that I know who would say different, feel he'd be a relief after all the beat downs the Dems have inflicted on New Yorkers. We may just catch a break this time. Fingers crossed.

Just a thought: maybe the NY-MFM is even worse than the national MFM, such that it hides what the NY electorate is thinking even better? Such doesn't make Paladino the idea candidate, but it may set up a surprise on 11/2?

Let's review. Paladino has an illegitmate child. Cuomo is a sleaze bag and probably has an illegitimate child.. Dicker is an unscrupulous reporter who believes he is PLAYER but not a REPORTER.
Pretty fucked up. No winners here.

This Dicky guy, he's jumped into the ring on Cujo's side against Padladidno like the unexpected tag team guy on TV wrestling, right?
And that means the families are like the other tag team people standing next to the audience who get attacked outside the ring.
Okay it makes sense now.

So when Paladino saw Dicker and knew he was the guy from the Post, he saw no reason to be polite, and I don't know any fathers of daughters who would. Dicker claimed that he had nothing to do with it, but who believes that? Dicker is the Albany/chief state politics editor for his rag.
As for "loose cannon" status... I can easily see any mature man with a business and a family who responds differently depending on whether he's negotiating a deal for a building, or addressing a $%%$%#%# reporter who had your 10-yr-old daughter stalked.
I live in Carl Country; his margin in the primary at the west end of the state was 93 to Lazio's 7%.
