"Judge"ing Rudy's Record
His first post is a rebuttal to Rudy's claim that he supports "strict constructionists." 18 months before yesterday's softball session on H&C, Rudy made a very different comment to Hannity and Colmes on the judge issue. This quote certainly won't reassure conservatives who Rudy is trying to court with the judge argument...
"And what's important to me is to have a very intelligent, very honest, very good lawyer on the court. And [John Roberts] fits that category, in the same way Justice Ginsburg fit that category. I mean, she was -- she maybe came at it from a very different political background, very qualified lawyer, very smart person. "
Later Brody posts on a conversation he had with Family Research Council leader Tony Perkins about Rudy. Perkins had this to say about Rudy:
"Most pro-family Americans do not yet realize how far outside of the mainstream of conservative thought that Mayor Giuliani social views really are. Once people focus on this election and the candidates Giuliani's lead will diminish. If by some chance Giuliani were to gain the Republican nomination it would set up a very similar scenario that we had last November. A unenthusiastic Republican base which will suppress turnout and set up a Democratic victory. "
Let the Freak Show begin!
