(Newser) – As love letters go, Andrew Cuomo's probably gotten better: Tea Partier Carl Paladino, recent upset winner of the GOP's gubernatorial nod, took the gloves off to write New York's attorney general a scathing note in which he invited "Dear Andrew" to "for the first time in your life be a man." Cuomo lacks "the cojones" to "face me and the other candidates in open debate," the letter continues, according to the New York Post.

Furthermore, Cuomo might pretty-please consider not hiding “behind daddy's coattails even though he pulled strings to advance your career every step of your way." As for aforementioned daddy: Mario was “a governor who left our state economy in a wreck.” No response from dear Andrew's camp.
