Rich Iott movie, or Paladino-paying gay nightclub?

Quiz Time!

When he isn't reenacting various wars or trying to decide what his day job is, Ohio congressional candidate Rich Iott produces movies!*

Meanwhile, new York gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino says that our children are "brainwashed into thinking homosexuality is equally valid." Which brings us to this quiz:

Movie produced by Rich Iott, or gay nightclub that operated in a building owned by Carl Paladino?

Cobalt

Beautiful Boy

Glass City

Never Cry Werewolf

Deal

Buddies II

Yeti: Curse of the Snow Demon

InSight

Happily After


*How do I know this? After the Jewish friend that he called to testify to his character said they'd worked on film projects together, David Waldman at Daily Kos pointed out that Richard Iott has his own IMDB page, listing the screen gems in which he's been implicated over the years! It's quite a read.

Answers: 1, 6: Gay nightclub
2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9: Rich Iott movie

Is it me or does Paladino look a lot like Heatmiser?

And see, I think he looks like Fat Tony on the Simpsons!

Now this, by contrast, is quite hilarious. On his employment application it said "soldier". Well, being part of re-enactment does not quite cut that, one would at least hope given that he dressed up as a Nazi soldier! So he was then asked what that meant. The response was his national guard service. Well, that does not cut the mustard either. It's only one weekend a month. So what was his means of earning a living? Now it seems we know. Did he star in any of these films?

Didn't Troy McClure star in Yeti: Curse of the Snow Demon?

Are you certain the characterization of Mr. Iott's movies is proper. Check the page out and see if any of the listed films appear to be pornographic. They appear normal and boring to me, but I have never seen a homosexual porn flick.

Rich Iott makes all those horrible SyFy movies? Guess I know where they got all the Nazi costumes for SS Doomtrooper!

Hey Martial, don't bag on the Nat'l Gaurd they've been deployed oversees in combat zones just like the standing military.

You know, connecting anyone with Paladino is below the belt. Paladino is the slimiest New York politician in decades. The one who resembles the pile of garbage is the Illinois candidate.

Does everything really have to be dumbed down to this far?

If Paladino had refused to rent commercial space to a bar owner who intended to cater to gay clientele, it would warrant discussion in a major newspaper. Likewise, if there was any evidence that Iott is a Nazi admirer and not simply a guy who likes to participate in historical reenactments and to make movies, there would be something newsworthy here. As it is, this is is just a cheap shot.

Given the money being spent by candidates this year on negative ads, it's not like the country needs another cheap shot.
