Given that Mayor Bloomberg has wandered up and down the map in his quest to be loved for who he truly is*, this may not be very surprising. How can a legacy politician whose most marketable skill is his last name be expected to keep up with the political peregrinations of a rank opportunist and party-switcher? – still, you’d expect better than a room-temperature IQ performance here. Andrew Cuomo is supposed to be someone special. And not in the mean sense of the term.
“Have I voted for the mayor? Yes,” Cuomo said.
Actually, he didn’t. The Cuomo campaign had to issue a clarification, saying he was only registered to vote in New York City in 2005 when he endorsed Democrat Fernando Ferrer.
Translation: “Has he voted for the mayor? No.” Personally, if I had ever voted for Bloomberg the shame and anguish at my lack of judgment would have been burned into my soul, but that sort of thing apparently weighs lightly on the consciences of Democrats. No wonder Carl Palladino‘s surging.

*A quest made utterly futile by the fact that he’s, well, Mayor Bloomberg – and thus inherently unlovable.
