Just a reminder that there’s a primary election in New York State today. Cynthia Nixon has Andrew Cuomo piss-pants scared, and pretending he’s a progressive in bro’s clothing.
In the less than two months since Nixon declared her candidacy, Cuomo all but reversed his opposition to legalizing recreational marijuana, which he called “a gateway drug” as recently as last year; proposed a ban on single-use plastic bags, again barely a year after he signed legislation barring New York City from imposing a tax on them; vowed to use his pardon power to restore voting rights to as many as 35,000 felons; and declared a state of emergency at the city’s public-housing authority.
If you think that Cuomo is going to do any of that, I have a prematurely opened bridge to sell you.
Getting rid of Cuomo would be a dream, and if dreams came true, hey, wouldn’t that be nice? Still, we’ve seen other unlikely winners in Democratic primaries recently, most notably Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren. So, if you’re goddam sick and tired of this feckless bastard who constantly pushes to the right just to keep his delusional Presidential aspirations on life support, get out there and vote.
