ALBANY — Tuesday’s gubernatorial debate reminded me of the joke Woody Allen tells at the start of “Annie Hall.” It goes like this: Two women are at a Catskill mountain resort and one says, “Boy, the food at this place is really terrible.” And the other one says, “Yeah, I know, and such small portions.”
That’s essentially how I felt while watching Republican Lee Zeldin face off against Gov. Kathy Hochul, a Democrat. The gubernatorial debate was largely unedifying, unpleasant and added little to a race that is tighter than many of us expected. And the voters of New York deserve more of it.
