“Confidence is a nice suit. Arrogance is the same suit … with suspenders, Italian loafers, and gold cuff links.”
Meet Andrew Cuomo.
Governor of New York.
Well tailored in arrogance.
Not quite content with a modest marker for his father’s grave, he’s decided on a three mile long masterwork … across the Hudson River … which might yet be renamed the Rubicon if this political nonsense continues.
Cuomo the Lesser is offended that New Yorkers are offended by this publicly-funded, family memorial … to which they’ll be mortgaged to for the rest of their mortal lives.
And that, dear plebeians, is a tell-tale symptom of congestive arrogance.
This public tempest has more than pricked the dutiful son … and now he’s full of snit.
Peeved that some taxpaying peons of the Empire State find corrupt intrigue in this imperial monument to Il Papà.
After all … the loyal-royal son reasons … it’s just a three mile long bridge, for goodness sakes. It’s not like a movie trilogy.
So now we have “The Displeased” to keep company with “The Deplorables” … and more than 100,000 of them have signed an angry petition to preserve the original name … “The Tappan Zee” … and deny Il Duce the chance to immortalize the Cuomo family name … as he positions himself to make the governor’s seat his forever throne..
Isn’t that an offer we shouldn’t refuse?
So I guess this is where the soundtrack kicks in … and Andrew stuffs cotton balls in his jowls … and does the Marlon mumble.
Let’s do some back-checking on this special guy.
Andrew Cuomo finally passed his bar exams … on the fourth try …
which perfectly explains his judicial IQ … as well as his genius for politics.
Get a load of this …
Back in 2011 … in a radio interview … Governor Cuomo … in a moment of stunning political modesty … declared …
“I am the government.”
Oh! I didn’t know Louis was a pal.
In 2014, Andrew Cuomo decided to purge New York State of undesirables … “The Bad People” … citizens who were pro-Second Amendment, anti-abortion, and not-so-hot on gay marriage.
He said …
“… they are the extreme conservatives …
they have no place in the state of New York.”
And that’s why New York State is the home of tolerance. Or intolerance. Make that arrogance.
And about this corruption stuff …
“The cloud of corruption hanging over Gov. Andrew Cuomo just got darker … A federal court jury … convicted all defendants on all charges in a bid-rigging scheme involving the governor’s Buffalo Billion program …
…the verdict is a permanent taint on the governor’s honor and judgment — and the ethical standards he sets.”
