Responsible New York & Buffalo’s Kremlin

3 May

In today’s Buffalo News, Bob McCarthy suggests that Tom Golisano’s Responsible New York organization will most likely be backing Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown in the upcoming mayoral election.

Here’s the link to Responsible New York’s “Pledge to New York”.

It would seem to me that backing the hyperpolitical and ultra-secretive Brown Administration would run counter to several of Golisano’s stated objectives.

I’m not quite sure how re-electing the Casey politburo helps the “many”, but I’ll be looking forward to the verbal gymnastics.

    This is just one piece of the Golisano-Pigeon farce that includes snagging a $70,000 job for a failed Senate candidate. What job in the private sector pays that much for a no-show job? How does Bob McCarthy let Pigeon off the hook on that one when he gives Pigeon gushingly glowing ink on everything else. Is Bob the only one in WNY who doesn’t despise old school take-no-prisoners political Machiavellians who never accomplish anything more than getting their name in the paper?

    Quick quiz…name one good thing Steve Pigeon ever did for WNY?

    Either Bob McCarthy is blowing Steve Pigeon or the other way around. Seems every time I read McCarthy’s Sunday column he is promoting the notorious self promoter(Pigeon),one of the most distasteful, self centered, spiteful individuals ever known to man.

    Bob MCCarthy is the teenage girl of political reporters: “Like ohmygod, you totally won’t believe who I saw eating dinner at Chef’s with Chris Collins last night. I like totally think they’re going out or something…”
