Carl Paladino Sends New York State Voters Garbage Scented Campaign Material (VIDEO)

Chris Matthews prides himself on having seen it all in politics, but even he seemed a bit perplexed by the latest campaign strategy of Carl Paladino, the Republican candidate for Governor of New York.

Thursday's 'Hardball' (weekdays, 5 PM ET on MSNBC) ran a segment on garbage-scented mailers Paladino is sending out to the voters of New York.

"Carl Paladino's been sending out mailers like this one, slamming what he calls the stink of corruption in Albany," Matthews explained. "Old message, right? Well what's different about this is it actually smells. That's right, the mailers have actually been scented with a landfill odor ... and, get this, the smell is supposed to get worse over time."

"Carl Paladino has an odd way of endearing himself to voters," Matthews concluded.

No word on whether Paladino's next campaign tactic will be to show up at voters' homes and kick them in the shin.
