Sarah Palin's nuclear bomb, Carl Paladino's f-bomb

Sarah Palin, in an exclusive interview with the conservative Web site Newsmax, prophesies the end of the world:

"We have to realize that, at the end of the day," Palin warns, "a nuclear weapon in [Iran's] hands is not just Israel's problem or America's problem -- it is the world's problem. It could lead to an Armageddon. It could lead to that World War III that could decimate so much of this planet."

In a writeup of the interview, Newsmax adds a helpful explanation after the former Alaska governor's claim: "Palin's reference to Armageddon, described in the Bible's book of Revelation, refers to a final battle between the forces of good and evil over the existence of the state of Israel."

Carl Paladino, the Republican nominee for governor of New York, had a pithy answer when asked what his response as governor would be to a U.S. attorney general (like Eric Holder, for example) who decides to hold terrorist trials in Manhattan.

Paladino's reply:

"F*** him. F*** him."

Paladino's quip, in a freshly released video filmed in March, predates his recently expressed opposition to "grinding" at gay pride parades.
