NY Gov's 'I am the Government' Quote Now Ringtone

A recent soundbite from New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo that's become a hit on Twittter is getting extra mileage as a ringtone.

In a radio interview Wednesday, the Democratic governor said, "I am the government."

His comment quickly made the rounds on Twitter, a ringtone was set up, and Thursday's New York Daily News pictured Cuomo in a wig as France's Louis XIV, who famously said, "I am the state."

Cuomo didn't appear to be boasting, however, in his comment on WGDJ-AM in Albany. He was explaining how his poll numbers reflect New Yorkers' renewed faith and confidence in government.

Cuomo quickly added that he was referring just to the executive branch of state government.

His office didn't immediately respond to a request for comment Thursday.
