Does a public apology absolve Carl Paladino of the flap of the past week and allow him to move on ? Maybe, but the ruling class in Albany that wants him defeated also includes many in the permanent press corps.
A fellow like Fred Dicker is more entrenched than any state senator and really does function as a force for stasis in government.
I am wary of a an apology speech. It looks a little weak.
A call to Mr. Cuomo would be a stand up move....and an appearance on Dicker's radio show would be the kind of in your face, I am not afraid move that could work, if Mr. Paladino can keep his message focused on that new 4% clothing tax parents are paying this week to keep their kids clothed. (Even Patty Plate has a new spot exploiting the clothing tax)
Fred Dicker , like Speaker Silver will be in Albany come January and Wild Carl has to prove he can deal with heat from those quarters without imploding.
