WHICH IDIOTS IN CONGRESS ENDORSED GIULIANI?
3 U.S. Senators-- Kit Bond of Missouri, David "Diapers" Vitter of Louisiana, and Norm Coleman of Minnesota-- plus 21 congressmembers (22 if you want to count Puerto Rico Resident Commissioner Luis Fortuno) endorsed Giuliani. Three of the congressmen have the great excuse of being homestaters, Vito Fossella of Staten Island, Peter King of Long Island, and the retiring Jim Walsh of Syracuse. The rest look as clueless as the non-candidate, who busily and pointlessly spun his wheels for the last half year, wasting millions and millions of dollars on a campaign that was so overly consulted that it never got off the ground.
Maybe because they appreciated his choice of dresses and wigs, but, interestingly, two of the House Republican caucus' most notorious closet queens-- David Dreier (R-CA) and Phil English (R-PA)-- plus the biggest "fag hag" wanna-be, Mary Bono of Palm Springs, were big Rudy boosters. Now they look like big fools, along with those who are retiring (Jim Walsh, Jerry Weller), those who will need presidential pardons to keep from spending much of the rest of their lives in prison (Jerry Weller, Jerry Lewis), and those who are almost sure to need a job after being defeated in November (Dave Reichert, and Norm Coleman).
Ideologically, the group went from whacked out and unstable extremist loons like Pete Sessions (R-TX), who has never voted right on a single bill under the ProgressivePunch Chips Are Down analysis), Devin Nunes (R-CA), Ed Royce (R-CA), Charles Boustany (R-LA), Jerry Weller (R-IL), and George Radanovich (R-CA) to a hapless gaggle of on-again-off-again, always fake, self-professed "moderates" like Reichert (R-WA), Frank LoBiondo (R-NJ), Judy Biggert (R-IL), Charlie Dent (R-PA), Jim Gerlach (R-PA), and Jon Porter (R-NV).
Presumably they'll all wind up in McCain's camp, along with Rudy himself. "'This is a man who is prepared to be president,' Giuliani said of his 'old friend.' Giuliani said McCain gives the Republican Party the best chance to hold onto the presidency. 'I am very proud to endorse my friend and fellow Republican-- a hero-- John McCain.'"
Interestingly Giuliani was still attacking this "hero" as recently as 2 days ago. ALthough Giuliani's casmpaign website will be edited to reflect the new reality, Democrats.org was kind enough to capture 15 of the most effective slams Rudy made against his good friend McCain, everything from his being a liberal on the economy and not supporting tax cuts to his stand on immigration reform and his lack of executive experience.
