It’s at least an interesting thought. To be sure, the Republican party suffers from an aggressive form of cancer — brain cancer? — but is Evita the right prescription? Can she kill the cancer without also killing the last vestige of anything good about the Republicans, or worse? Man, I don’t know. I’ve said for years that Hillary will never be President; but right about now I’m feeling like I do when I think a price level in the markets can’t possibly be touched — right before it is. There’s a lot still to happen, so making predictions is just for the fun of it.
Perhaps even more interesting is a possible defection by the religious right if Giuliani gets the Republican nod. That wouldn’t be for the purpose of winning, but to split the vote in order to block Rudy. I’ll tell ya: as much as I loath the Hillary creep show, I loath Giuliani just as much, possibly more. See, I was paying attention when he was a federal prosecutor and I know what he’s all about. That’s an 18 page, well documented and researched PDF entitled IT’S THE ECONOMY, STUPID:
RUDY GIULIANI, THE WALL STREET
PROSECUTIONS, AND THE
RECESSION OF 1990–91.
You think you have any remote idea of the truth of that matter — Milken & all the rest — having been exposed to only the news media of the time? Well, live in ignorance if you wish, or with a collection of truths that tell only the politically convenient story of the time, but it’s certainly not the fully integrated, honest reality of the matter. You may still disagree, but at least you’ll know.
