The editorial writers at the Times, who endorsed Hillary Clinton and John McCain today, took the opportunity to kick former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani when he's down:

"Why not choose the man we endorsed for re-election in 1997 after a first term in which he showed that a dirty, dangerous, supposedly ungovernable city could become clean, safe and orderly? What about the man who stood fast on Sept. 11, when others, including President Bush, went AWOL?

That man is not running for president. … The Rudolph Giuliani of 2008 first shamelessly turned the horror of 9/11 into a lucrative business, with a secret client list, then exploited his city’s and the country’s nightmare to promote his presidential campaign."

We can only imagine that Giuliani's response would be along the lines of: "9/11. 9/11, 9/11. 9/11; 9/11; 9/11 — 9/11? 9/11!!!!!"
