Rudy Giuliani sinks to new low
For the record, I have never liked Rudy Giuliani. He was a good prosecutor, but that's the last job at which I thought he showed skill. I never liked him as a mayor -- nor did I ever vote for him -- nor have I thought much of how he's comported himself since leaving office. (For the record, I also have no use for current NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio, whom I view as an empty shirt, and who has impressed me not at all since taking office.)

His current position as shill for Donald Trump is perhaps his nadir as a human being, and what's really hilarious is this comment made when introducing the Republican nominee at a rally in Ohio:
Under those eight years, before Obama came along, we didn’t have a successful radical Islamic terrorist attack in the United States. They all started when Clinton and Obama got into office.

Inexplicably, the former mayor of New York has somehow totally forgotten about the incredibly successful radical Islamic terrorist attack in the United States in the city for which he was mayor in the fall of 2001 (which was, in fact, seven years and four months "before Obama came along," and so in Giuliani's arbitrary eight-year window). Given that his stewardship of NYC on 9/11 and afterward was pretty much his entire platform when he unsuccessfully ran for president in 2008 (Jon Stewart referred to him as having "9/11 Tourette's" at the time), this is even more mind-boggling than usual.

(H/t to etoile for the heads-up about the ex-mayor's latest doofery.)

I like de Blasio, and I respect him. He's not perfect, but mostly he seems to be moving in the right direction. I follow both him and his spouse on Twitter, and that allows a fairly good look at their ideas.

This presidential election will forever be my counterargument whenever someone claims a character's actions in a work of fiction are implausible.
