When I was 13, I went to the airport with my parents to pick up a relative or friend - I don't remember who it was. As I walked through the airport slightly behind my parents, a total stranger walked past me and grabbed my crotch. I couldn't believe it at first; I thought maybe it was an accident or I was mistaken. A few minutes later, however, the man reappeared and did it again.

It is tempting for people on both sides of the aisle to see this election as a paradigm shift or a new development in American politics, but there is also much about this election that is not new at all.
As the sun sinks on Paladino's political career, say goodbye to one of the worst candidates for major office in the history of New York politics. Farewell, Carl. We will not see your like again. Let's hope.
