Rudy G in the land of the free

I'm stealing this post in its entirety from the awesome blog Nobody's business. Just wanted you all to see it before you decide to vote for Rudy in any upcoming election or primary.

Every petty dictator should have these Giuliani quotes embroidered on a nice decorative pillow. And every lover of liberty should remind him- or herself that these words were not lifted from Orwell's 1984, but were uttered in all apparent seriousness by a man who is a top contender for the Republican nomination.

"Freedom is about the willingness of every single human being to cede to lawful authority a great deal of discretion about what you do."

He might have left it at, stopping short of turning an already dicey sentiment into something certifiably disgusting, but no:

"Freedom is about authority."

I swear that's what he said. Jawdropping.

My previous Giuliani assessment here.

Just thought you guys should know that real freedom is giving up liberty to the government - at least according to Giuliani. Also, if everyone would please compare Rudy's mayoral approval ratings in New York prior to 911 and post 911, that might show you something. Essentially, he benefitted from the tragedy by crying at the right times and calling the right people heroes. I think there are a whole lot of people who could have done that, yet somehow this jerk-off is now one of the leading candidates for the presidency.
