Commentary, World Views and Occasional Rants from a small 'l' libertarian in Massachussetts

"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Just in case Andy Cuomo thought he had a chance to run again in the near furture. He decided to 'open mouth insert both feet'.

Andrew Cuomo said his campaign for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination failed, at least in part, because his opponent, H. Carl McCall, is black. "The negative here is that I was running against the first African-American. It was his turn,'' Cuomo, who is white, is quoted in Thursday's editions of The New York Times in a column by Bob Herbert.

Is there any filter between a newborn thought and his mouth?

Asked if the public's view of him would be the same if he had been running against a white candidate, Cuomo, the son of former Gov. Mario Cuomo, told the newspaper, "No. No. It was about this. I was an arrogant interloper, interfering on his turf. "I came from Washington. ... Didn't wait in line and came here and said, 'I'm going to run.' And got in the way of the first African-American.''
