Hahahaa, I was just trying to capture the frustration of living in a relatively wealthy blue state. Like, I understand, politics these days is a horrorshow, and I have genuine, heart-stoppingly vivid sympathy for people who live in states whose topmost politicians routinely say horrifying shit denying the very humanity of some of their constituents. I really do. I really, truly do.
But Andrew Cuomo is an asshat, in the classic, old-school centrist New York Democrat kind of way, in a way that now seems so quaint. I mean, he’s a heartless bastion of mindless privilege, an absolute festering sump of pork-barrel patronage, a glad-handing media-hungry fop who’ll do anything for a soundbite and believes he’s basically God, on zero evidence.
I hate him, but if it were him or Trump, I’d knife-fight a furious weasel blindfold for him. At least he respects the office enough to turn up and at least make a show of it. And he’s, you know. Not actively a fascist. And probably not even currently engaged in treason. Who knew my standards would slip this low so quickly.
