With Rudy’s speech, to riff on the brilliance of the immortal Molly Ivins, I think I preferred this speech in the original German.
On a more serious note, I think it will eventually be clear to people that the Republicans made a major mistake putting Rudy in prime time. Given the state of the campaign, they have to take the fight to Obama. But you need to choose the right person. Rudy comes across as curdled and angry. Great for rousing diehards. But I don’t see this speech working with undecideds.
10:27 PM … What’s weird is that Rudy seems to get genuinely angrier the longer the speech goes on.
I will admit he’s got the Joseph Goebbels hand gestures down pat.
