Did Neil Kinnock say it first?

Hats off to Joe Biden for this zinger:

Joe Biden justified his presidential campaign by getting off the best line of Tuesday night’s debates. Opining that Rudy Giuliani is “probably the most underqualified man since George Bush to seek the presidency,” he averred:

“There’s only three things he mentions in a sentence — a noun, a verb, and 9/11. There’s nothing else! There’s nothing else! And I mean this sincerely. He’s genuinely not qualified to be president.”

Someone finally said it: the wannabe Emperor has no clothes. (link)

Forget about beating up on Hillary Clinton. Every Democratic candidate should go on the attack against Giuliani, who promises to continue the unprecedented expansion of executive power begun under the Bush/Cheney regime.

You know, I wish that Giuliani had been able to take on Hillary Clinton back in 2000. Had he lost, even with 9/11, it's doubtful that he could be considered a credible challenger to the woman likely to be the Democratic candidate. And if he had won, well, one more Republican senator during the early years of the Bush administration wouldn't have made things much worse.

But somebody else would have been holding that bullhorn on 9/11, and Giuliani would now be just another member of the Republican minority.

I am seriously frightened for our republic under a Rudy Giulliani presidency. The other Republican candidates are unpreferable, but broadly survivable. But Mr. Nineleven Death Cult has got to go.
