Rarely do we here at Toasted Joe veer over into that bottomless chasm of corruption and fear-mongering that some call "politics." But big news today. I managed to swing an interview with one Rudolph Giuliani, fresh off his recent abandonment of his Presidential campaign. Unfortunately, the tapes have already been confiscated by the McCain campaign, so a written transcript will have to do:
TJ: Rudy, were you disappointed by the results in Florida?
RG: Well, a little bit, but you know what -- and this is something I learned after 9/11 -- you're going to face some rough times. You've just got to bounce back. Like I bounced back after 9/11.
TJ: What are your plans for the future?
RG: Well, I have a few things planned. I've scheduled a few lectures about 9/11. I've started work on a 9/11 cookbook. I'll also be auctioning off the underwear I wore on 9/11.
TJ: Do you think your personal life affected your campaign?
RG: No, the whole thing with Judi was 9/11. And my kids may not speak to me any longer, but 9/11.
TJ: OK, well thank you very much for your time, Rudy.
