One Down

Well, the presidential candidate field is narrowing as we speak. People are behaving in a manner calculated to appeal to the 5 minute attention span of the American public. Too bad that doesn’t work around here. We have loooong memories and Google comes to our aid about half-remembered tidbits.

Rudy Giuliani has once again demonstrated his lack of understanding of the U.S. Constitution.

"I used gun control as mayor," he said at a news conference Saturday during a swing through California. But "I understand the Second Amendment. I understand the right to bear arms."

He said what he did as mayor would have no effect on hunting.

I like how one can contradict oneself in the same breath and not get called on it. If Rudy understood the 2nd Amendment, he would know it’s not about hunting.

Let’s review Rudy's appeal to the party base, shall we? Religious people won’t vote for him because he’s pro-choice. Social conservatives won’t vote for him because of gay marriage and his stellar personal life. The RKBA crowd won’t touch him because of his previous actions on gun control. All of this would be fine if he were running as a donk, but he’s flying the efenant flag. Who exactly does he expect to vote for him in primaries? The tooth fairy and the Easter bunny? Aren't they donks? He certainly doesn’t expect the kind of party supporters who show up for primaries to vote for him, does he? He can’t be that stupid…

Oh, well. He needs to flame out quickly, anyway, so I can get on with the important business of making sure John McCain (R-etard) gets sent home like the crazy old coot he really is.
