A few weeks ago, nobody heard of Carl Paladino, a rich realtor from Buffalo who beat silly Lazio in the Republican primaries for Governor. Lazio – if you remember, ran against Hillary for senate in 2000 and made a laughing stock of himself by trying to bully her in a debate. So, beating Lazio, by outspending him – not a big a deal. The story would have ended here.

Enter the media.

Day after day,

Paladino has been

on covers of newspapers

And who can forget the “Governor in waiting”? And the hoax scandals the press cooked for him to make it easy for Cuomo – who was investigating Paterson?

stuff like this

and this

and since he didn’t resign, this

All this to get Cuomo to run un-opposed.

Fast forward to today

Cuomo 49, Paladino 43: Now Here’s a Shocking Poll

And to make it funnier, Bloomberg’s endorsement, not so useful either.

Karma is a bitch.

Because I remember it all, I predicted the polls getting closer the moment I saw Paladino getting covers.

Not a lot of reasons to vote Cuomo, are they?

In short: I told you so.

Me, I felt moved to write about this as it rang as deja vu.

Nicolae Ceausescu Time 18 March 1966

Back in the old country, in the early 70’s, a ruthless dictator, was basking in the world’s admiration as “The Maverick”

A decade before he destroyed the Romanian economy, Ceauşescu established himself as the West’s favorite Communist leader—largely because he refused to join the countries of the Warsaw Pact in the 1968 invasion of Czechoslovakia—the increasing repressiveness of his own regime notwithstanding

Obama’s international popularity – if the author is right, is about as warranted as his Nobel peace prize.

And “the world” is bound to become as embarrassed about its swooning as they were with Ceausescu as history settles accounts.

Truth is a daughter of time after all.

Meanwhile, “the world” should mind its own business and STFU.

We get enough contempt and  talk down from your beloved

I’ll start with the fun: Now that Obama’s pet Cuomo has his cojones on the table so to speak, the press baits him to defend them  – especially after getting wind that he wondered “Should I call him an a..hole?
