As I’ve said before, I like Rudy Giuliani for a host of reasons. But he also has a ton of drawbacks (like his previous position on illegal aliens, which I hope he’s changed, but we’ll see).
Tonight, Baba Wawa interviews Rudy and his wife, Judith Nathan Giuliani. And excerpts are being promoted by ABC. One of them is troubling and evokes visions of the first Hillary Rodham Cankles admiministration, when a man named Bill was on the ballot in her place.
Giuliani tells Wawa that if he’s elected he’d be open to his wife, Judith, attending Cabinet meetings on issues in which she’s interested.
Whoa! That is NOT what we want. We’ve had enough of Hillary playing President when her husband was elected, enough of her secret health care policy confabs. It reminds me of Slick Willie’s “You get two for the price of one” slogan. Sorry, but if I wanted a bargain, I’d go to Filene’s Basement or TJ Maxx, not the polling booth in a Presidential election.
And I have the same rejoinder for this unwelcome news about Mrs. Giuliani that I always had about Hillary:
She was NOT on my ballot.
Not sure why Rudy thinks this is good news to any of our ears. But here’s a newsflash about the First Lady . . . any First Lady:
She’s not the President. She’s not on the ballot. She should have no say in any policy or even the appearance thereof.
The First Lady’s issues should be:
White House drapes, White House china, State Dinner menus, ball gown fashions, haircuts with Christophe, workout wear, the color pink, pastel clothing, silk, ribbons, bows, flowers, smiling teas with ugly wives of foreign leaders, meeting snot-nosed kids trying to find eggs on the front lawn, giving awards to women who rescued cats from cancer and psoriasis, and breast cancer awareness.
In that order and without other issues seeping into the fray.
Please, Mr. Giuliani. Another Hillary Rodham Cankles administration, we don’t need.
