You probably heard all about it: the Republican nominee for the governor of NY made a nasty remark about gays. NY Times and NPR can't stop reporting about it. Predictably, Andrew Sullivan reacts to Paladino's rant with his own typical Sullivan rant. I take one look at Intrade and Pollster and say: who gives a shit. In all seriousness, the chances of him being elected are pretty slim, and clearly rants like this are not particularly helpful. Yes, it is infuriating for a serious candidate for political post to be saying these things .. but honestly, maybe his slim chances of being elected are a testament to how marginal and extreme his views are? So instead of wasting time and energy on him, can we all please get more sleep or run for 10 minutes?
