Losing the Peyser voter

Andrew Cuomo does not seem to have won over one particular New York Post columnist:

Only once did I hear Cuomo utter anything resembling human emotion. I asked when he planned to marry his live-in girlfriend, TV cook Sandra Lee. Cuomo started laughing.

Then he started chuckling again. It went on so long, I feared a coronary. He didn't answer the question.

As a campaign strategy, Cuomo is waiting it out, hoping his foe will run out of gas. Or implode.

But I miss the man who eight years ago had a pulse. Cuomo seems to have transformed into the thing he hates most:

A slick politician.
