In a state where I attended college and pay taxes, the Governor is telling me pro-life/conservative people aren't welcome. Such ignorance.

In case you’re wondering about the source of Meghan’s butthurt, here’s the whole story. Short version: Andrew Cuomo made the observation that there’s no place for far-right Republicans in the politics of New York if Republicans ever want to elect a statewide candidate. This, of course, was transformed by the right wing outrage brigade into a comment by Cuomo on whether those kinds of Republicans were welcome in the state.
As a New Yorker, let me assure Meghan that we’ll be happy to have her here as long as she pays taxes on her trust fund disbursements. But, as a New York resident, Meghan would do well to remember the crushing defeat of Teanderthal / Horse Porn Enthusiast Carl Paladino, who espoused the far-right beliefs Governor Cuomo was referencing. His 37% showing in that race was what New Yorkers thought of Carl’s politics. If Meghan would stop getting her news from Sean Hannity, she might understand that 63% of her fellow residents don’t like Carl’s flavor of conservatism, and her party will be beat like a rented mule in every statewide race until they shitcan their bigotry, sexism and stupidity.
