Guy Who Wants to Run New York Likens Health-Care Reform to 9/11


Carl Paladino, a millionaire real-estate developer from Buffalo, plans to formally announce his Republican candidacy for governor on April 5. Today he said this on the radio about health-care reform:

Well, that was a fun campaign while it lasted. [Daily Politics/NYDN]
