"Hubris is one of the great renewable resources..." -- P.J. O'Rourke
"If one sins against the laws of proportion and gives something too big to something too small to carry it -- too big sails to too small a ship, too big meals to too small a body, too big powers to too small a soul -- the result is bound to be a complete upset. In an outburst of hubris the overfed body will rush into sickness, while the jack-in-office will rush into the unrighteousness that hubris always brings..." -- Plato
Well, apparently my work is done...
It is now confirmed:
Andrew Cuomo did, in fact, preside over a cover up of his incompetence that led to the deaths of 15,000 people.
The numbers of dead in New York State nursing homes from COVID-19 exceeded the published numbers by 50%. The Cuomo administration knew it; they hid it; they withheld the truth from state lawmakers and federal authorities for fear of giving Donald Trump ammunition against the left during an election and because the administration feared an investigation and criminal prosecution.
Well, that seems to have become a self-fulfilling prophecy: there's now several investigations and there will, one hopes, be several criminal prosecutions.
It would not be the first criminal probe that has had the name "Andrew Cuomo" attached to it.
But, it gets better, as the New York state democratic party as a whole begins to abandon Cuomo openly, and calls for his impeachment.
Now, call me cynical, but it wasn't all that long ago that democrats (small 'd' intentional) didn't care if you lied. They didn't care if one of their own engaged in a cover-up. Failure was just proof that you were doing your job to them. Being a venal little fuck was merely the least of the requirements for being a democrat, and the better you were at it, the more they loved you for it. After all, look at the long list of truly evil, lying, criminal sacks of shit that has made up the left-side of the New York State political aisle and you see:
Bill and Hillary Clinton (running an influence-peddling operation as a charity)
Chuck Schumer (the lies and hypocrisy begin before his feet hit the floor every morning)
Alexandria Ocascio-Cortez (moron and tax cheat)
Bill DiBlasio --and his wife (running a play-to-paly scheme in the open, disappearance of $1 billion in funds that was supposed to "help the mentally ill")
Elliot Spitzer (Hookers)
Anthony Weiner (showing his wiener all over the internet, especially to underage girls)
Marc Panepinto (Convicted of sexual harassment)
Sheldon Silver (Federal corruption charges)
Pedro Espada (Embezzling money from federally-funded health clinics),
Pamela Harris (no relation to Kalama Harris, fraud, making false statements to FEMA, witness tampering).
Malcolm Smith (attempted to bribe a republican party official to let him run on the republican party ticket for the 2013 Mayoral primary when he couldn't get on the D ticket).
Gabriella Rosa (convicted of entering into a sham marriage for the purposes of immigration fraud).
Alan Hevesi (Convicted of running a pay-to-play scam and stealing from the NY State Pension Fund).
Why, I could go on for days, but being a corrupt, mendacious, hyper-partisan parasite is an old New York Tradition for democrats going all the way back to Tammany Hall, and probably even back to collaboration with the British during the Revolution.
(Not that the Right Side should be bragging about anything).
To put the icing on the turd cake, so to speak, it appears as if Cuomo can't keep his hands off the female staff, as TWO women (but far be it from me to assume any genders when it comes to the left) have accused Cuomo of being handsy, threatening, creepy and probably of wearing women's lingerie. It is probably bad enough to go through life knowing that you are Andrew Cuomo -- that is a curse far deadlier than any ever inscribed upon a dead Pharaoh's tomb wall -- it must really suck when you're the governor of a state, have a vast bureaucracy at your command, have the ability to practically bribe anyone with a job or a state contract, but you're still so repulsive that even the ugly chicks would rather go incel on you.
Andrew Cuomo has done a good enough job of shooting himself in the ass, so I need do little from here on out.
But, I'm also not stupid enough to believe that the democrats who are calling for his scalp are motivated by purest altruism and a suddenly-discovered need for propriety.
Mark my words, Minions, what has happened here is the Democrats O' Color in New York State have discovered -- really, already knew -- that the Governor was a ticking time bomb and given enough time, would explode all on his own. Until that happened, it was business-as-usual in Albany and Washington, that is to say, the democratic party was going to go on being a party of vote-stealers and election frauds, corrupt to the bones, thieves, liars, whores, and worse, until the boom finally happened.
And then the wounded Cuomo was dogpiled. By the very people he's pandered to forever.
The left's new-found love of morality is not about right and wrong: it's about the Democrats O' Color taking an opportunity to rid the field of the strongest white male candidate to make way for someone darker, dumber, and far more crooked and nefarious, and probably with tits (whether real or stuck on by a sick fuck with an MD, makes no difference). Because the loudest criticism of Cuomo is coming from the Diversity and the first investigation came from the Attorney General, a (presumed) female of hyper-pigmentation.
About the only thing he hasn't been accused of as of this writing is "sending really mean Tweets".
Keep your eyes on this one.
