Rudy's return?

By Michael J.W. Stickings

It was inevitable, but it looks like Rudy Giuliani -- shameless exploiter of 9/11, would-be torturer-in-chief, and neo-fascist thug, not to mention presidential campaign failure -- is looking to restart his political career, the New York Post is reporting:

In the latest twist in New York politics, Rudy Giuliani is eyeing a run for governor in a special election this fall should Gov. Paterson be forced to resign, sources say.

Of course, this is all rather premature. Paterson has admitted to past infidelities and drug use, yes, but "those disclosures have raised little outrage, either from the public or his colleagues in Albany," and, barring further disclosures or revelations, he may have succeeded in putting his personal past behind his political present.

Still, Rudy will come back at some point -- if not this November, then a November to come, and likely sooner rather than later, or perhaps as a high-ranking official in a possible McCain Administration.

About which I say to the people of New York:

Please, please, please don't let this happen. You wouldn't be able to do anything about a political appointment, but if and when he's ever on another ballot in your state, vote for someone else.

Don't unleash this repugnant man upon yourselves -- nor upon the country, nor upon the world.

It is long past time for Rudy's political career to be over for good.

  • Oh, I don't know...if New Yorkers, after having the best seats in the house to Giuliani's eight years as Mayor of NYC, were to elect him governor, such a disaster could not happen to a more richly deserving populace. Best of all, as Governor of New York, he could only persecute the people of the state that put him in office. The rest of us in the other 49 would be unaffected (assuming that the SEC will now begin to police Wall Street, and not leave this duty to New York's AG).
