Rudy - Rolling Stone
Home Politics Politics News


Thank you, Florida Republicans, for saving America from Rudy's lispy brand of authoritarianism.

Rudy's endorsement of McCain may not matter much tomorrow, prestige wise, but it will bring with it a well-established organization. I know from the emails I get every week that Giuliani volunteers have been phone banking in California for months. Presumably his operation in other big states — New York in particular — is similarly robust.

Going forward, McCain will be at a disadvantage money-wise. And there's enough people who despise McCain in the Republican party that I think Mitt won't even be funding the majority of his full-court challenge of McCain through February fifth.

But Rudy's foolhardy big-state strategy will give McCain a real leg-up in the ground game with independents and non-evangelical Republicans.

Let us just pray that McCain didn't overpay for this endorsement with the promise of a VP slot.
