Rudy Guiliani is the closest that the GOP can get, I guess, to a presidential candidate whose constituency resembles organized crime members. Oh, but he's a leader.
"I believe that the skill I have developed better than any other was surrounding myself with great people..."
"Too many leaders overlook candidates with unusual résumés because of a failure of nerve...By the time I appointed Bernie Kerik, I had hired so many people that I was immune to such criticisms."
--Rudy Guiliani, Leadership (2002 - Hyperion)
Mr. Kerik followed Mr. Giuliani downstairs to a dimly lighted room. There waited Mr. Giuliani’s boyhood chum Peter J. Powers, who was first deputy mayor, and other aides. One by one, they pulled Mr. Kerik close and kissed his cheek.
"I wonder if he noticed how much becoming part of his team resembled becoming part of a mafia family," Mr. Kerik wrote. "I was being made." Link
Can you goddamn imagine if Hillary Clinton had hired Bernard Kerik and then recommended him for the head of Homeland Security?
Rudy is the Knee Pad Media's choice to be the United States first official dictator. The Bernie Kerik issue would have already disqualified ANY Democratic candidate running for president. The Padders would not have stopped until that candidate withdrew from the race.
Padders will simply let this story from the NY Times die on the vine and, if asked, say some stupid sh*t like, "our audience isn't interested in old news".
Like Rudy said....he's basically "immune" to criticism.
