    The ISG was transcendent, compared to W's constantly-faulty logic.

    Even when W is right (occasionally!), it's almost always for the wrong reasons.

    His apologists cannot be reasoned with, as they refuse to acknowledge the countless telling points,
    mounting against his "legacy".

    Although a very bright guy, Rudy is running on a platform of exactly two issues:

    1) I'm tough -- whether it is with squeege bums in NYC or Osama, I'll be tough with anyone who is against my interests (and maybe that of the country). I talk tough and I act tough.

    2) 9/11 (a.k.a. -- I'm a leader). No matter what crisis comes up, I can handle it. Look at what a great job I did after 9/11.

    Everything else is just background. He doesn't need to get bogged down in policy issues like what exactly we need to do in Iraq.

    The wheels have come off for me in any interest I once had for Rudy as president.

    The Village Voice did a pretty good rip job on him a few weeks ago that left a lot of folks rethinking things.

    I am already dreading the prospect that Rudy and Hillary are going to be our only realistic choices in November 08. Just once I wish there'd be a candidate left at the end that was exciting and different.
  6. Rudy's SC chairman has problems of his own.


    Lindsey Graham (R-Beard) is dancing around singing show tunes today, since Ravenel was talking about primarying him from the right.

    Forgot to add this (sorry if it's d_b) but he isn't going to be at the Straw Poll during the Iowa State Fair in August. He said he's better off spending $2 million campaigning than to do a "dress rehersal" with the peanut gallery.

    Yeah, that's not going over so well in Iowa...

    He feels pretty, oh, so pretty . . .

    Was that the piece about the Yankess? If so, that was very well researched, if a little muddy in its presentation. The fact that a grown man and mayor of the most important city in the world broke all sorts of rules in order to get a 1996 World Series ring is comical.

    I still don't know how his former chauffeur became NYC's top cop and aone step away from becoming the head of Homeland Security.
