Okay, I’ve had enough. I know the empty-vessel Shill Media struggle for something, anything to talk about, this being the lot of those intellectually and philosophically bankrupt. But Rudolph Giuliani for president? Please. There’s more chance I’ll simultaneously be made head of NOW and the NAACP and be invited to George Soros’ next soiree.
I know a little something about Giuliani. Although my politics, faith, appearance, gun case and, well, most everything about me say otherwise, I was raised in New York City. And one of my last acts before departing the Den of Iniquity for suburbia was to cast a vote for America’s Mayor. Don’t hold it against me; he was running against David Dinkins, a man who made Forrest Gump look smart.
Unlike the piece I wrote about the now listing U.S.S. Mitt Romney, I’m not herein trying to sound the alarm. Rather, I simply point out that Giuliani is a ship that only floats in New York Harbor. He is far too liberal to get the Republican nomination.
I’ve never witnessed a more laughable game of collective “Let’s pretend” than the media’s Giuliani coverage. Even Dick Morris, the erstwhile Clinton propaganda minister who fancies himself the Niccolo Machiavelli of the third millennium, has called Giuliani the man to beat.
He’s more like the man who will be beaten – and by more than one candidate, mind you.
The media love to point out how Giuliani is the poll-leader for the Republican nomination, a fact which means absolutely nothing. All many people in middle America know about him is that he didn’t pull a Ray Nagin on 9/11 – he stoically shepherded his city through that dark hour – and that he rendered a captivating, earthy speech at the 2004 Republican National Convention. And on his list of credits I’ll add that after ferociously battling the mafia as a United States Attorney, he followed suit as mayor and cleaned up NYC, reducing crime and improving quality of life.
This is all well and good but, unfortunately, Giuliani only looks palatable when viewed through the narrow prism of these few events. And sometime very soon the average Republican voter will learn something: Liberal NY Republicans are different from liberal NY Democrats. They have an “R” next to their names.
