Giuliani Watch - 4

Crooks & Liars has some good news for us... bad news for Rudy and, as usual, they've got video.
Yesterday, the International Association of Firefighters held their Presidential Forum and Rudy "America's Mayor" Giuliani was MIA. President of the Association Harold Schaitberger appeared on Hardball last night and had some extremely harsh words for Rudy and his "egregious acts" against the FDNY in the days and weeks after 9/11.

As if strong condemnation from the nation's largest firefighters union wasn't bad enough, Bernard Kerik, Rudy's NYPD Commissioner and Bush's first choice for DHS Secretary, rejected a plea deal on a litany of federal crimes including (but not limited to) tax evasion, mortgage fraud and conspiracy to commit illegal eavesdropping.

As if all of that wasn't damaging enough, it turns out Giuliani's law firm is on the payroll of…wait for it…Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. You can't make this stuff up.

Something tells me this is all going to be a wee bit of a liability for Rudy.

Rudy and McCain are too pathetic to win the nomination. Romney's kind of stuck in "you either don't know who I am or you know I'm a Mormon" land.

It's why I think Newt Gingrich is likely to get in and win. And he is probably the only person who is worse than those three.

You may be right, LJM. But the possibility that the Newt might win the Republican nomination is proof that their talent pool is shallow (and stagnant) indeed.

Even someone as jaded about the intelligence of the voting public as I am, can't believe that a majority would put this failed hate-monger into the White House.
