Clearly rattled that his cowardice has become so obvious, Gov. Andrew Cuomo just opted to make his arrogance even more blatant — not to mention his utter contempt for New Yorkers’ intelligence.

Pressed hard Friday on WCBS Radio on why he refuses to debate Republican opponent Marc Molinaro (and clearly irked by The Post’s front page depicting him in a chicken outfit) Cuomo suddenly seemed to give in.

Well, sort of. Because this is Andrew Cuomo we’re talking about.

The governor agreed to what he calls a debate, though it’s doubtful anyone else would accept his definition.

For one thing, he insisted it had to happen on less than 24 hours’ notice, at 8 o’clock Saturday morning. And it would be held on local radio only — no TV cameras.


Furthermore, Cuomo wouldn’t even show up to face his challenger: He’d only commit to phoning in, because it’s parents day at his daughter’s college.

And get this for arrant chutzpah: Cuomo says it’s Molinaro who’s afraid to debate, because he never faced off against John Di Francisco — who dropped out of the GOP race four months before the primary.

The gov also claimed he’s refused debates because Molinaro “has not put forth any substantive idea” — when he’s actually put out quite a few of them.

New Yorkers are about to discover whether chickens can fly.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who have been flipping the bird to voters who expect re-election-year debates, underwent coerced changes of heart over the weekend — well done, New York Post front page — and will debate their opponents after all.

Cuomo sits down with Republican Marc Molinaro on Tuesday afternoon; Gillibrand with the GOP’s Chele Farley on Thursday.
