World Wavers, History Hesitates

January 18, 2008

Make sense?  No? 

Well, according to Rudy Giuliani’s campaign, it should.  Add in the “movie guy” voice-over, along with images from 9/11, and it is intended to resonate, I guess.  Why else would he put this new TV ad on the front page of his site?

“When the world wavered, and history hesitated, Rudy never did.”

What’s going on here?  Is Rudy’s campaign suffering from the writers strike or something?  I mean, if you’re going to (once again) exploit 9/11 for the purposes of bolstering your floundering campaign, one would hope that anyone with better than a elementary level education should be able to come up with a better line than “history hesitated”.   Good grief.

“History hesitated”.  This is going to bug me all day now.  Oh well.  Perhaps, years form now, it might make a good crossword puzzle entry:

Swiftboating John McCain

January 18, 2008

I suppose I shouldn’t be too surprised by this:  Vietnam Veterans Against John McCain

(h/t Hot Air)

After 2004, I was kind of hoping that the Vietnam War wouldn’t be a campaign issue this time around.  So much for that.
