The Nine-Eleven Nincompoop

While New Yorkers know Rudy Giuliani isn’t the Sept. 11 hero he claims to be, his campaign has been fairly successful in convincing the rest of the country that he is. Joe Biden said it best when he characterized the GOP candidate as only speaking with ‘a noun, a verb and a 9/11.’ The exploitation of the tragedy permeates all he does on the campaign trail – from debates, speeches and political ads (see below). While admittedly neglecting to campaign in states he feels don’t matter, don’t count him out yet. He’ll return with his 9/11 rhetoric once the primaries hit the more populous states. His fear-mongering messages aren’t over yet but let’s take the lead of his children and start tuning him out. Don’t fret yet Rudy: you’ll always have a career hosting “Saturday Night Live.”
