The Comedy of Cuomo's Commissions

  • The commission will never back off.* (*Except when the governor's aide say so)
  • The commission will examine all political monies.* (*except those of his own party)
  • The commission will act boldly*  (*except against inside friends with money)
    So says, Michael Powell of The New York Times - weighing in on the comedy of Commissioner Cuomo, in "Governor's Crusade Against Corruption Comes With Too Many Astericks" (October 14, 2013):
Getting a straight answer about Commissioner Cuomo's commissions, according to the article, "… called to mind a gubernatorial update of Abbot and Costello's "Who's on first?" routine."  

"Mr. Cuomo likes to say that New Yorkers can sleep better at night knowing that his commission is prowling the land," Mr. Powell writes.  

Maybe it's that folks sleep better after a good laugh, so thanks go to Commissioner Andrew Cuomo for high-lighting The Comedy of Corruption.

  1. You can't make this stuff up. Maybe Andrew Cuomo should have 20 asterisks after his name

  2. If Andrew can't do what he said he would do- address corruption- then he should consider resigning as governor and he should let someone else try.

  3. Boy, ya know, this subject gets less funnier and less funnier the more birthdays that pass while we wait for elite politicians with enormous egos and steady cushy incomes to make this society into one we can all be proud of again.

    My personal bone of contention is our honorable officers of the courts. It is positively STUPEFYING what these miscreants get away with at the PEOPLES EXPENSE. Yeah, I've heard it said 'they're not all bad'. BULSHIT. I have never met anyone who practices law for a living who didn't turn out to be a liar, cheat, thug or thief.

    Ahhhhh, I wish I hadda just STOOD IN BED.
