Rudy Giuliani Runs Off the Rails

Giuliani is now a guy who says stupid shit. Great status upgrade, Rudy!

(Update below.)

Rudy Giuliani -- at one point in the 2012 election he was the Great White Hope -- has left the building, that is if the building is the place where people take you seriously. Yes, the ex-mayor has jumped the shark:
Here's the thing: Giuliani was once a very important -- and intriguing -- player in American politics: A tough-on-crime, take-charge guy tasked with running the biggest city in the country. Now, thanks to comments like this one on Obama, he is turning into something far more run-of-the-mill in the political world: A rank partisan willing to say the most outlandish of things to get attention.
Republicans -- like Walker -- who may be courting Giuliani's support in 2016 would do well to remember the transformation of the mayor and the risks that his endorsement may now carry.
If early returns are any indication, however, they won't be heeding that advice.

"The gist of what Mayor Giuliani said -- that the president has shown himself to be completely unable to speak the truth about the nature of the threats from these ISIS terrorists -- is true," said Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, another presidential aspirant, on Thursday. "If you are looking for someone to condemn the mayor, look elsewhere."
Will do.
Cillizza has it right this time. And Bobby Jindal -- who wants to be taken seriously in the worst way -- may be shark-jumping, too. Oh well.

Update. Wayne Barrett weighs in on ole Rude and tells us what he knows Rude knows about love.
