Lipsey / Paladino Rapprochement?

Something struck me today regarding Paladino’s newest insult billboard-a-torium. Take a look, if you will, at the last two:

Paladino Billboard the First

Paladino Billboard the Second

And here’s the most recent iteration:

Notice the difference?

Did you also notice Bob McCarthy’s seemingly perfectly normal Sunday opinion piece detailing how Paladino intends to become politically active again?

Several sources tell me that Carl Paladino and Buffalo News publisher Stan Lipsey broke bread recently to bury the hatchet. This explains Lipsey’s absence from the “bucket list” sign, and the friendly tete-a-tete with McCarthy. That is the perfect explanation for the abrupt end to the Paladino-Lipsey feud.

To go from two consecutive “Fuck Stan Lipsey” signs, to a glowing, uncritical profile in The Buffalo News to including “nobody-from-the-Buffalo-News” on his new ‘fuck you’ sign is quite a swing

Might be time to update this to include Carl.

    Who are your sources?? Because Ron Watson’s article in today’s Buffalo News contradicts every conclusion you jump to. Artvoice spends too much time on the Buffalo News! You come across as hopelessly jealous.
