'Something STINKS in Albany'

Well, this is sure to help attract voters. Or flies.
Something stinks in about 200,000 mailboxes around New York — a flier from the new Republican nominee for governor.

A garbage-scented mailing by nominee Carl Paladino features the photos of seven Democrats, six of whom have been investigated and two who have resigned in scandal in the past four years.

“Something STINKS in Albany,” the mailer says. Paladino spokesman Michael Caputo told The Associated Press on Thursday that the mailer is scented with a “landfill” odor.

He says the smell will get worse the longer it is exposed, just like Albany.

The mailer doesn’t name Andrew Cuomo, Paladino’s Democratic opponent. But Paladino has been trying to link Cuomo to the Democrats who control every statewide office and both legislative chambers.
Unlike many other Tea Party candidates Paladino is almost sure to get blown out in November. But he's at least giving us some chuckles.

Expect the television outlets to lead with Cuomo's victory on election night. It'll likely be the only time you see any of the babbleheads smiling.
