    One thing that Mario did (or, I should say, didn't do) about as well as Andrew.

    Like Andrew, Mario tossed the left wing in this state a bone every now and then.  But in reality, Mario was almost as weaselly as Andrew. ALMOST.

    Eventually, the left finally figured him out - which is why we ended up with Pataki as governor, as the base either didn't vote or actually voted for Pataki that year.  People eventually got tired of that Cuomos bullshit too.

    In some respects, I'd even say Mario was worse than Andrew.  It was before my time, but he repeatedly fucked over his own state employee unions with bullshit like lagged pay - which he did twice - the second time being slapped down by the state Court of Appeals as illegal.  And this was a time when unions and Democrats got along far better than they do today.  That's just one example.  Though in Andrews case, he's only had just one opportunity to fuck his workforce, so he still has plenty of time to surpass the douchebaggery of his father on that front.

    "There was no such thing as a "wealthy" hunter-gatherer. It is the creation of human society that has allowed the wealthy to become wealthy. As such, they have an obligation to pay a bit more to sustain that society than the not-so-wealthy." - Me
