As noted earlier, reacting to some of the excess of March, national Tea Party leaders are looking for ways to tone down the group’s image and rebrand it as a mainstream (i.e., not Crazy) albeit insurgent movement. But if that’s the plan, they may need to do something about Tea Party New York governor candidate Carl Paladino.
