Hugo 'n' Rudy

By Michael J.W. Stickings

Rudy, Rudy, Rudy. This doesn't look good: "Rudolph Giuliani's law firm lobbies for Citgo Petroleum Corp., a unit of the state-owned oil company controlled by Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, the U.S.'s chief antagonist in the Western Hemisphere."

I tend to agree with Shakes that this is "passingly amusing," if not necessarily damning. Still, "it just reaffirms that Giuliani is a hypocritical, integrity-challenged corporate whore". And like she says, if this were a Democrat -- say, Obama -- with this sort of connection to Chavez, the right would be going "absolutely apeshit".

For an excellent post on Rudy's problems, including this one, see Tim F. at Balloon Juice: "The potential self-destructiveness of the Giuliani campaign is almost impossible to put into words."
