Rome, NY Sucks

But At Least We're Not Utica

There's a Fair in New York State?

It appears that there will be no governor at this year's Governor's day at the Fair this year. This is the first time a governor hasn't attended the opening day in nearly 20 years, and would make Spitzer the only governor who never appeared at the opeing in about 3 decades. His reason? A previously scheduled family vacation. Good planning there. And where the hell is that Day 1 tax relief?

I'm getting a little sick of NY politicians like Bloomberg and Spitzer treating their offices as stepping stones to national office and treating upstate residents like backward hicks. Or in the case of Bloomberg, treating NYC as his own personal fat-free Petri dish. Going to these events, admiring the butter sculpture and kissing a few babies is literally the least you can do as an elected official.
