A brief comment on Rudy Giuliani because he deserves it. Two days ago, he said we should elect a Republican for president (preferably him) in 2008 because we'll be safer from terror than if the Dems were in charge. Under Democrats, he argued, more Americans would die.
Really? Tell that to the 3,334 Americans killed in Iraq under a Republican president or the 2,602 New Yorkers who died under a Republican mayor -- a mayor who insisted on locating the emergency command center in the World Trade Center even after it was bombed the first time in the 1990s. Keith Olbermann does a better job of getting him than I have time or space to devote to this jackass.
We can only pray that President Giuliani is as good at protecting the nation as Mayor Giuliani was at protecting Lower Manhattan.
