A grain of salt for a Cuomo endorsement

NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg is backing Andrew Cuomo over Carl Paladino in New York State’s gubernatorial race.  Just check out YNN’s report.  Woah!  Stop the presses.  Who expected this?

Well… probably everybody.

But wait, it’s gotta be a surprise, right?  After all, wasn’t Bloomberg first elected as a Republican?  Yup.  But prior to that he was a Democrat. Currently he’s an independent.  Personally, I view him as New York’s premier “intrusive government” guy.  You know, the guy at the forefront of smoking bans/cigarette taxation, trans fat bans, and anti-salt activities.

Which makes Cuomo’s statement about Paladino’s latest surge in the polls all the funnier.

Cuomo said, “I take them all [polls] with a grain of salt…”

I don’t disagree with Cuomo.  I think polls are overrated, and we will likely see significant shifts back and forth over the next few weeks.  We will also see a lot of polls.  Cuomo better keep that saltshaker handy.

I wonder if Bloomberg is concerned about Cuomo’s salt intake now?

Ya’ gotta love irony.

Personally, I’ll be taking the mayor’s endorsement with a chunk o’ salt.
