Hot Air

Last Of A Breed?


Requiescat in pace, former New York Governor Mario Cuomo, the one guy all we liberals wanted to run for prez in the late 1980’s and into the ’90s. Instead we’ve since been stuck with the likes of Mike Dukakis, Al Gore, and John Kerry. And our victorious guys, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, were and are to liberal Democrats as sardines are to blue whales. No wonder the party got its ass kicked in November.

Even Mario’s kid, current NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo, is more a 1984 Republican than a Dem in the mold of his old man.

It’s enough for me — a guy who’s never once in his life voted for a Republican — to despair.

A Reminder

The Pencil is on hiatus — sorta — as its big cheese, Big Mike, works on a book. This communications colossus will be back carrying screeches, screeds, and pontifications on an (almost) daily basis before you know it. So chill, okay?

    Politically, I was a late bloomer. Cuomo was my first true love.
