When I lived in New York, Rudy Giuliani’s most noteworthy accomplishment was to complain about (and thereby validate) the notorious “Piss Christ” art work at, if memory serves–and it doesn’t, any more–the Brooklyn Museum. I could Google it, but why should I? So can you!

That’s not the point. The point is, 9-11 happened. I wasn’t there any more but I watched in on tv. And along with a zillion others I gave the Mayor grudging points for, as I now realize, telling the truth when he knew it and admitting he didn’t know when he didn’t. He had the decency to look devastated and not to play to the camera. It is impossible for the human imagination, with which I claim to be equipped, to imaginate George Bush doing the same.

Now the Family Values candidate whose kids hate his guts and who has had three times the number of wives as Bill Clinton presumes to run for President. And the Republicans, bless their hearts, are just as capable of buying his line of baloney as they were (and still are) of buying W’s. They’re The Baloney Buyin’ Party, those Republicans. And if they end up buying it with the government’s money and passing the expense on to you, the taxpayer–well, that’s just their “way.”

But never mind that. Instead, let’s you drop everything and read this excellent, eye-opening piece, fetchingly entitled “Rudy Giulinai’s Five Big Lies About 9-11,” by the excellent Wayne Barrett of the Village Voice. Send it to everyone you know and, for that matter, everyone you don’t know. That equals everyone! Just don’t send it to me because I have, by definition, already read it.
