How come nobody ever gets compared to Mohammed?
ALBANY (NYT) — The lobbyists are now comparing Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo to Jesus.
The cover of a Christmas card from the lobbying firm Malkin & Ross says, in ornate script, “’Tis the Season Wise Men Celebrate His Birth.” The words are set against a blue backdrop interspersed with snowflakes and stars. Inside, the card features a smiling picture of the governor, and notes his birthday falls on Dec. 6.
The card, which was distributed to the news media, has drawn its share of eye rolling. As The Times Union of Albany put it in a headline: “Unto Us, a Governor Is Born.”
Arthur Malkin, a founder of the lobbying firm, declined in an interview to elaborate on the card.
“We’ve had a policy for 20 years, since we’ve been doing cards, that the card speaks for itself, and we leave it at that,” he said.
