Governor Almost As Broke as State

While the Post led with "fat man flips bird," the New York Daily News tried news (and Beyonce) on the front page: David Paterson has $620k to spend on a primary campaign. That is not as much as Andrew Cuomo.

Cuomo, who really should just hurry up and announce his candidacy for governor (a job he presumably wants because he thinks he is far too popular and well-liked these days), has $12 million available to spend on the Democratic primary. Paterson has $3 million available for a general election, so his best bet may be to hope that Cuomo decides not to run after all. Which, once again, it is the worst job in New York. Why would anyone want it?
