Giuliani insisted on locating New York’s emergency command center in the World Trade Center — a likely terrorist target — despite detailed objections from the police and Secret Service. (It would later be destroyed on 9/11.) Great judgment.
Giuliani recommended his pal and former bodyguard Bernard Kerik, a high school drop-out, to helm the nation’s Homeland Security. (Kerik would later be sentenced to four years in prison.) Great judgment.
And now Giuliani — who holds himself in the highest possible regard (as he does our constantly-lying, incompetent, vulgar, bullying president) — is leading the charge against Robert Mueller.
It’s rich. Treat yourself to Joe Scarborough’s rant on Giuliani — and corruption. After a slow start, it just builds and builds and builds.
Quote of the Day
The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.~H. L. Mencken
