Like many of my readers, I’ve been enraged by the funding of Andrew Cuomo’s perpetual campaign by the Committee to Save New York. It makes my blood boil, to hear Cuomo fart and have the Committee almost instantaneously have an infomercial on the air praising a governor for some “unprecedented” act, a governor who is neck and neck with Mitt Romney for the award for the most unctuous politician of the day. My fury is unbounded, however, with the news this morning in the New York Times that some of the building trade unions have been heavy supporters of the Cuomo committee’s efforts. This governor, who likes to see himself as a progressive, has cleverly driven a wedge between private and public sector labor thereby weakening a progressive force in New York. With union leaders like these, the right doesn’t need creatures like Governor Walker to destroy the labor movement. They can just sit back and watch these times of scarcity motivate what is left of labor to tear itself apart.
