Why I Want Rudy To Win The Nomination

Because this will be a daily occurrence:

OKATIE, SC -- Giuliani refused to take questions here today about allegations that travel expenses were picked up obscure city offices when he was mayor of New York City.

“We’ve already explained it,” he said, walking past reporters after a town hall meeting.

Giuliani, who is normally friendly to reporters, bristled past them, and campaign staffers were unusually physical in keeping the press away. Several campaign aides told campaign reporters to return to the press area, and some of his security detail manhandled reporters. On other occasions, reporters have been free to video Giuliani as he is shaking hands and signing autographs after events, and he often informally takes questions from reporters.

At root, Giuliani is an authoritarian with an adversarial relationship to anyone who disagrees with him. He's a thug, and a general election would be a nine-month-long series of thuggish acts like this. This is the real Rudy. Don't you want to see "NOMINEE HITS CAMERAMAN" headlines for nine months?
