This campaign just won’t be the same without Rudy Giuliani.
Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t have voted for the guy if he paid me – and I wouldn’t have put it past him to try – but every good campaign storyline needs a villain and nobody was more qualified for that than Rudolph Giuliani.
Even his name sounds great all reverbed out with lightning crashes and organ music behind it.
I mean, the rest of the cast goes from inspiring through off-putting and head-slapping right down to screwhead capitalist pig dog, but Rudy was mean. Evil. Angry. He conjures up the kind of visceral dislike usually saved for Dick Cheney, Dick Nixon and Creed.
Rudy Giuliani is an old school political scumbag in the pure Nixonian tradition. A Brooklyn kid with a Napoleon complex, anger issues and a desire to not only best but embarrass and punish his enemies, as well as anybody else, who has the audacity to share the spotlight with him.
