If I ever had any doubts that Rudy Giuliani was presidential material, they have surely been assuaged by comments he made in Cincinnati yesterday:
“This is not a mayor or a governor or a President who’s sitting in an ivory tower,” Giuliani said. “I was at Ground Zero as often, if not more, than most of the workers. I was there working with them. I was exposed to exactly the same things they were exposed to. So in that sense, I’m one of them.”
Yes, Rudy, in a sense, you are indeed one of them – in fact in the exact same sense that George Bush cutting some stumps on his toy ranch makes him a good ‘ol boy rancher or that wearing a fucking open-collar plaid shirt turns any Necropublican into a commoner for a photo op. You are a privileged, conniving, cowardly asshat riding the 911 pony for the same reason Bush has.
That really is one of the more outrageous things I’ve heard so far in this campaign, but I’m still hoping for more as things heat up. This can go nowhere but down as it becomes more obvious that the Party might go for a Mormon or maybe even another wannabe tough-guy actor.
Yes, Rudy, you are indeed presidential material; which is a horrible thing to have to say about the presidency, but nonetheless true.
Go, Rudy, go!
