Sen. John McCain took in a New York Yankees game today with his friend and onetime primary rival, Rudolph Giuliani, and it turned out that Hizzoner, and not the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, drew the bulk of the crowd’s attention.
A’s manager Bob Geren and Yankees manager Joe Girardi huddled around home plate with McCain, Giuliani and his wife, Judith, for a few minutes. At one point Geren asked McCain about what it’s like to run for president, to which he replied: “It’s like being in AA [baseball] and all of a sudden you’re playing in Yankee Stadium.”
Giuliani answered a few questions from a pool reporter as McCain signed balls. Asked what he thought of Sen. Barack Obama’s current trip to Afghanistan, Giuliani responded, “I think if you look at Senator McCain’s record on Iraq, I don’t see how you fail to elect him president. I mean, he was right about Iraq when almost everybody else was wrong. It’s turned out that if we had caved, in the way Barack Obama and the Democrats do, we’d now have a defeat.
….blah, blah, blah….
You can read the whole entry there if you want, kids, but the best part for me was a comment left by a reader:
Isn’t Guliani a Muslim?
