TPM Reader AN descends into further Rudyology …

I just watched the clip that Ben Craw put together of all the various times Rudy Giuliani mentions 9-11. There was one moment in particular that actually made me laugh out loud. With about 2:45 to go in the clip Giuliani says, “I had to be responsible for the safety and security of my assistant U.S. Attorneys; for the law enforcement people who work for me; then for 8 million people…” You’ve previously pointed out the absurdity of a mayor claiming to be responsible for the safety of a city’s residents. But I think claiming to be responsible for the safety of his subordinates while U.S. Attorney and claiming to be responsible for the safety of the very people (law enforcement officials) who are in fact largely responsible for the safety of city residents takes Rudy’s hero complex to new heights. Bravo Mr. Giuliani. Well played sir.

My candidacy for Lord High Universal Dungeon Master will be based largely on the fact that I am responsible for the safety and security of one million TPM Readers around the globe. It’s a terrible burden to carry. But I’m not complaining.
