Did he really say that? part 2

Posted: August 11, 2007 in lies, republicans

Just when you thought the Republican candidates couldn’t get any sillier, what with Mitt Romney dishonoring the sacrifices of thousands of servicemen and -women by misrepresenting his sons working on his campaign as being equivalent to risking their lives on the front line, this gem from Rudy “9-11” Giuliani shows up:

(Aug. 11) – Republican presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani said Friday that he misspoke when he said he spent as much time, if not more, at ground zero exposed to the same health risks as workers combing the site after the Sept. 11 attacks.

He “misspoke?” Here’s another way to put it, sir: “I was full of crap.” Kindly repeat it after me, and then say it to a reporter, Mr. Giuliani. “I was full of crap.”

In a later statement, he said he “could have said it better.” That’s right. He shouldn’t have said it at all.

I’m sure the 15 minutes or so he spent touring Ground Zero before heading off on his meandering, misguided presidential campaign exposed him to a slightly elevated risk of asbestosis or lung cancer, but let’s face it, the only Presidential candidate who faces the same health risks as the workers who cleared the pile at Ground Zero is Barack Obama, who smokes like a chimney.

Heads up to Rudy: Stop pushing the snooze alarm on your 15 minutes of fame. Banging on about 9-11 isn’t going to get you elected. You weren’t much of a leader before that awful day, and you sure as shootin’ aren’t one now.

Go away, get married again, and shut the hell up already.

Oh, and in case you’ve forgotten, your new line is “I was full of crap.” Learn it, live it, love it.
