Obama Administration

The Right has the collective vapors because NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo said,

“Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and if they are the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”

I take it that in context he was talking about Republican politicians intending to run for statewide office, not all wingnuts. But Sean Hannity says he is moving out of New York, to which I say, don’t let the door hit your butt on the way out.

They can all whine and hold their breath all they like, but it’s pretty much true that an anti-choice, NRA-friendly homophobe is not going to win a statewide office in New York. That’s a plain fact.

    First, Glenn Beck left NYC.
    Then Rush left.
    Now Sean.
    YAY!!!
    There are exits all over the place, fellow Reich-Wing yakkers!
    Into NJ, CT, even PA if you don’t mind a drive through NJ – and who doesn’t like to drive through NJ?
    The problem is, stopping off or staying there.

    There’s the exit, Bull Orally!
    Take it.
    PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!

    As long as he doesn’t move to California.

    Hey Sean! We hate bigots, religious fanatics, and gun nuts too!

    I remember years ago Rush said he was moving to Costa Rica, because Obama. Is that where he is now? If so, how will we ever be able to tell a giant belching mountain from an actual volcano?

    Come on down to Florida, Hannity.. the weather is fine.. It’s sorta like the annex for New York…God’s waiting room.. it’s where the elephants come to die and you can always look forward to catching an affordable early bird special.

    Come on Maha, hasn’t Governor Gun Nut Perry said something pretty similar against liberals and then we had a collective conniption fit? This is the top elected official in the state and he shouldn’t be spouting like he’s, well, Hannity or the rest of those crazies. The majority of NY isn’t like that but a good portion of it is, and I think the governor needs to be more careful with what he says. He represents the entire population. Maybe living in a state where the governor believes he only represents the portion that agrees with him makes me more sensitive, but…. We’re better than that. Having said that, I had the same reaction to Hannity. Oh please, oh please, move out and make sure that the door hits you on the way out.

    OT…But another Repug bites the dust. It’s like they’re genetically incapable being honest. Seems he was partaking of the bounty of that excess drug money, or else commissions on the sale of vaginal probes in Virginia.

    Good Gawd sean insannity needs to take his spawn and do us all a favor and just leave the damn country. And yes he can take the rest of his anti American right wing nut jobs with him. I am frankly sick of their shit, sick of their guns killing our kids, sick of them poisoning our water, the minds of weak simple shit tabloid news flunkies ..sick of them destroying the country they claim to love..to hell with them I want them all to STFU and get out..so yeah if the shoe fits sean lace that shit up and wear it. It isn’t like the state of New York will fold without him and the lousy few dollars he pays in taxes so WHO WOULD MISS HIM?

    Buckyblue… The difference between what Gov. Cuomo said and what Gov. Perry said was that Cuomo was making a political assessment based on those issues, and Perry made a moral judgment based on those issues. Maybe not on the assault weapons, but on the anti-abortion and anti-homosexuality Perry alluded to God to support his position.

    New York, love it or leave it, huh?

    Philo– Stay or go as you please. Just don’t expect New York to love you back.

    “I remember years ago Rush said he was moving to Costa Rica, because Obama”

    I’d bet it was little boys down there! Wasn’t that where he got caught with the black-market viagr@?

    Hannity can’t move too far from NYC, I don’t think Ailes will pay for the armored motorcade he gets everyday if it’s from too far away!

  12. maha  •  Jan 22, 2014 @5:27 pm

    Maybe he’ll move to New Jersey. I’m sure the Guv will keep the bridge open for him.

    Maha, don’t mistake me for the people Cuomo was attacking.

    As for New York, it’s the greatest city on Earth, if you have enough money.
