Giuliani for 9/11


 

Somehow I missed this gem when The Onion first ran it in February (the fact that it’s dated the same week my son was born may have something to do with the oversight), but this is by far the best distillation of the Rudy presidential campaign I have read:

“Let us all remember how we felt on that day, with the world watching our every move, waiting on our every word,” said Giuliani, flanked by several firefighters, ex-New York Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik, and Judith Nathan, his third wife. “With a campaign built on traditional 9/11 values, and with the help of every citizen who believes in the 9/11 dream, I want to make 9/11 great again.”

According to Washington–based political analyst Gregory Hammond, Giuliani’s candidacy “should not be underestimated.”

Sure, he has no foreign or national policy experience, and both his personal life and political career are riddled with scandal,” said Hammond. “But in the key area of having been on TV on 9/11, the other candidates simply cannot match him. And as we saw in 2004, that’s what matters most to voters in this post-9/11 world.”
