Wonder where they got the idea?

In an interesting story about some recent troubles plaguing the Rudy Giuliani campaign as he runs for the GOP nomination, The New York Times noted among them: "two rogue volunteers exploiting the memory of 9/11 to raise money."

Two rogue volunteers?

Exploiting 9/11 is Giuliani's whole rationale for running. It's all he talks about.

This guy claimed he spent as much time at Ground Zero than any of the firemen and cops.

He implies that because he was mayor on that day, he somehow is now an expert on terror.

And when he got criticized last week for stopping in the middle of a speech to answer a cell phone call from his wife (that's wife #3 for those keeping score at home) he later said, “Quite honestly, since Sept. 11, most of the time when we get on a plane, we talk to each other and just reaffirm the fact that we love each other.”

See, 9/11 made him rude.

Those campaign volunteers eventually lost their jobs because they were charging $9.11 for tickets to an event.

Rudy has made something like $70 million in consulting and speech fees since 9/11.

But somehow they're the crass ones?

Did you see there's a group of conservatives threatening to run from the republicans if Rudy gets the nomination? It might be the best thing that ever happens for the democrats if he is the candidate!!
