    I remember Holy Joe lying his sanctimonious face off about the fiscal effects of the public option and Medicare buy-in (which he had campaigned on enacting less than three years prior!) when he was threatening to filibuster them.

    I also remember him either lying, or willfully believing a whole lotta bullshit, about Iraq and neocon foreign policy generally.  Particularly when he was campaigning for the Republican presidential nominee in 2008.

    He was never caught being nakedly corrupt (though he was an awfully reliable pro-corporate vote in the Senate for much of his tenure), but that doesn't make him honest.  He honestly believed in his own moral superiority - that's about it.

    Cuomo's an asshole too.  I'll enjoy the chance to vote against him in the 2016 primaries if he runs.

    He'd see everything! He'd see the big board!
