Paladino Reveals It's the Speedos and Grinding at Gay Parades That Upsets Him

After his idiotic comments Sunday, New York GOP gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino tried to explain himself this morning, and just kept digging a bigger hole.
Carl Paladino says it's the bumping and grinding he finds disgusting.

Appearing on NBC's "Today" Monday morning, the Republican gubernatorial candidate Paladino said he has nothing against gay people in his work or personal life - he just doesn't want to be exposed to their culture.

He specifically signaled out gay pride parades, with marchers wearing "Speedos and grinding against each other."

Paladino reiterated his opposition to same-sex marriage and said children shouldn't be exposed to gay culture.

But Paladino, who has a gay nephew who works for his campaign, said he would have no problem hiring gays in his administration. He called discrimination that his nephew and others face a "very ugly experience."

His comments came a day after he told Orthodox Jewish leaders he doesn't want children "brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality" is acceptable.

Paladino ignited a firestorm Sunday when he declared that being gay is "not the example that we should be showing our children."
There is a way to avoid being offended by what goes on a gay pride parades. Ignore the coverage.
