'It's going to get nastier'

The best part of this unedited interview with Republican gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino comes at the very end, where he says the race will get "nastier." Paladino says "being nasty and being crazy are two different things" and he goes on to call his Democratic rival, Andrew Cuomo a "despicable character." Twice.

My other favorite part is early on, when he's asked about the offensive emails he's forwarded, asks his interviewer, "What's that got to do with me?"
