The Party of Neigh?

Originally they called themselves teabaggers, until they found out what teabagging was. But now they might get an even worse name: “the party of neigh”. It turns out that Carl Paladino, the Republican candidate for New York governor who is running as a Tea Partier, has been sending out off-color emails to a long list of political and business associates. One of those emails features a woman having graphic sex with a horse. Others have racist themes.

Paladino, who says that he is “the only Republican in the race who agrees 100 percent with conservative values” also fathered a child during an extramarital affair he had a decade ago with an employee.

However, his emails show he values stable relationships, and he was just feeling his oats with a cute filly.

In his own defense, Palatino claimed of the emails he sent, “few represented his own opinion” and that his critics should saddle up and ride off into the sunset. I might just laugh myself hoarse.

UPDATE: It turns out this isn’t the first political mention of equine relationships. Here’s a pretty funny video from (believe it or not) former maverick John McCain, about his Republican primary challenger:

    Many people have sent me derogatory e-mails. I object. “I’m just forwarding them.” I block the “forwarder” on my e-mail.

    I am amused by his response to a person who asserted that the video showing Obama doing tribal dances during the inauguration was racist: “…”I’m not sensitive to ethnic humor.”

    Like you’re racist only if you KNOW that what you are saying is racist. The stupidity excuse?

    And what kind of excuse is “I’m just forwarding them”? Is that like “I didn’t put the bullet in the gun, I just forwarded it into his body”?

    Iron Knee – I like that! I forwarded the bullet into his body. I am definitely going to use that.
