A fascinating little nugget out of Florida. Rudy Giuliani is going to be in Florida next week campaigning for … Marco Rubio. Now if there’s anything to what’s supposed to be Rudy’s brand of Republicanism (and yes, agreed, it’s quite a hypothetical) you’d expect him to be down there campaigning for Charlie Crist, not Rubio.
But then there’s that thing about payback. One of the most comical things about the 2008 presidential cycle was that Rudy was apparently banking everything not just on Florida — we knew that — but on Crist’s endorsement making the deal for him. What Rudy didn’t figure on though is that whatever the deal the two of them may have had (and Rudy seems to think they had a deal) it was going to be tough for Crist to come through for him if he came into Florida lolling around fat and happy under a 50 ton rock.
When does it end with this goof? Wake me when he comes out for the 10th amendment making Health Care Reform unconstitutional.
