Annnd … the GOP quotable moments in advance of the 2016 Big Dance just keep rolling in. Whether they aim to attack Obama or presumed Dem front-out-runner Hillary Clinton doesn’t seem to change the calibre or quantity of the opposition ammo.

Giuliani already put hisself’ ‘pon the Public Pillory of Snark when he inserted his mayoral opining into a discussion of young black men and ‘shootings’ last year, wasn’t that special? On Red Meat the Press, no less, he c-ch-ch–choked out this morsel of bilious Ick,

White police officers wouldn’t be in black neighborhoods, killing black men, “if you weren’t killing each other.”

Thank you Mostly Irrelevant White Guy who couldn’t even think far ahead enough in your own presidential bid flop to plan for Flori-duh, as Nicole aptly dubs the state she’s trapped in.

But like most Republicans that hang on until only Grim Death pries their claws away from power and prestige, Mayor Rudy just keeps on braying. The latest squawk is being heard at least ’round the Punditry Circles.

At a Scott Walker fundraiser Wednesday, the Big G had this to say about the president’s love

[read lack thereof] of country.

“I do not believe — and I know this is a horrible thing to say — but I do not believe that the president loves America. He doesn’t love you. And he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country.”

Then he expanded. And began the re-insertion of ‘noun, verb 9-11’ into each and every paragraph for the foreseeable future.


“I know patriotism. Patriots can criticize. They’re allowed to criticize,” he said. “But I don’t hear from him what I heard from Harry Truman, what I heard from Bill Clinton, what I heard from Jimmy Carter, which is these wonderful words about what a great country we are, what an exceptional country we are.”

Thursday should have been Insincere Apology Rounds Day for Rudy. And perhaps even a chastising if fake comment from Scott Walker. In a normal political world.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker just sat there in silence initially and hasn’t deigned to do anything but punt againPolitico reported:

“With Walker sitting just a few seats away, Giuliani continued by saying that ‘with all our flaws we’re the most exceptional country in the world. I’m looking for a presidential candidate who can express that, do that and carry it out.'”

If you thought that was a phrase made for Fvx Noise, Bravo. Rudy went there. Early and often.

The 9-11 Mayor went freakishly fringe. Rudy skipped the double-down entirely – going all in(!) – and went for a marathon of marginalization that pre-curses us to more of the same with new and improved low morality plus their patented fear-mongering panders.
