Giuliani: beyond the pale

So you're running for president, and have a huge national lead, but in the states that matter, New Hampshire and Iowa, you are way behind a flip-flopper. You could attack the guy for pandering and flip flopping, but you don't want to remind primary voters that you are consistently against their positions on those issues.

If you haven't guessed already, I am talking about Rudy and Mitt. So what instead did "America's Mayor" decide to do? Attack Romney's religion on things he doesn't even believe (nor does his religion believe).
[T]he "Deputy eCampaign Director" of the Giuliani campaign, Katie Harbath, directs the blogger to the Salt Lake Tribune story — clearly in the hope that the story and its "Romney-as-fulfiller-of-Mormon-prophecy" angle will receive wider play.

Thought you'd find this interesting. Best,



From the story, which I quoted from yesterday, there are these quotes "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints does not accept the legend - commonly referred to as the "White Horse Prophecy" - as doctrine." and this one by the Mitt-ster himself "I don't put that at the heart of my religious belief."

I really dislike Romney, but Giuliani is equally completely unacceptable. It doesn't matter to me that senior Giuliani officials apologized after getting caught.
