NY Times To Rudy: Dude, Cancel That Subscription

After a ringing endorsement of Senator John McCain in which the New York Times stated: "Senator John McCain of Arizona is the only Republican who promises to end the George Bush style of governing from and on behalf of a small, angry fringe," then proclaimed "With a record of working across the aisle to develop sound bipartisan legislation, he would offer a choice to a broader range of Americans than the rest of the Republican field.", the tabloid got all Donna Hanover on former New York Mayor and current presidential hopeful Rudolph Giuliani. The paper released a stream of vitriol(or as some people call it, TRUTH) normally reserved for the likes Nazi war criminals and Michael Vick.

"Mr. Giuliani’s arrogance and bad judgment are breathtaking. When he claims fiscal prudence, we remember how he ran through surpluses without a thought to the inevitable downturn and bequeathed huge deficits to his successor. He fired Police Commissioner William Bratton, the architect of the drop in crime, because he couldn’t share the limelight. He later gave the job to Bernard Kerik, who has now been indicted on fraud and corruption charges." The Times noted. It then went on to say "The Rudolph Giuliani of 2008 first shamelessly turned the horror of 9/11 into a lucrative business, with a secret client list, then exploited his city's and the country's nightmare to promote his presidential campaign," and "I mean seriously did you ever hear this guy's lisp? And that combover he had, what's was up with that?

Tough on crime, easy on the eyes!

The venom was aplenty as they called Mitt Romney a "shape-shifting douche" and chastised Mike Huckabee for being an "anti-immigration absolutist" and bringing religion and Chuck Norris into the race. When told about the paper's bashing of him, Giuliani said "I probably never did anything the New York Times suggested I do in eight years as mayor of New York City, and if I did, so what? Who wrote that anyway? I'll have them killed. remember when 9/11 happened , right? Saw it...I was there."

Huckabee, you bastard.
