A Touchy-Feely Look at Andrew Cuomo and Joe Biden

From a talk between Gail Collins and Bret Stephens in the New York Times:

Bret: Cuomo is our state’s great unifier. Everyone from The Nation to our friends at The New York Post is in agreement that he needs to go, immediately.

What I find somewhat amazing is that more New Yorkers didn’t recognize sooner what a repulsive, repellent, repugnant, revolting, retrograde, rebarbative, reprobative reptile they had in the governor’s office.

What took so long?

Gail: Well, you wouldn’t have had trouble finding stories about what a bully and jerk Cuomo can be. The grabbing part is, of course, the big news, and I sure wish it had gotten attention sooner.

Interesting comparison to Joe Biden, who had touchy-feely issues back when he was veep. It was totally different in the sense that Biden was being friendly rather than assaultive. But women did begin to say, “Hey, enough of that hugging, squeezing stuff,” and he very quickly got the message. Issued a good apology. Everybody moved on.
