Giuliani Is Giuli-Gone-y

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


As pathetic as the Republican hunt for a nominee already is, it just got worse.

Rudy Giuliani has had no luck wooing conservatives, but you’d think America’s mayor would at least get the firefighter vote. Nope. Turns out many of New York’s finest think Giuliani botched the Ground Zero clean up and showed blatant indifference for the ladders’ losses. In fact, Giuliani was to be the one ’08 candidate they didn’t invite to speak at an upcoming forum, a leaked union letter [PDF] reveals. They relented, Rudy accepted, and then bowed out shortly thereafter.

Countdown on his candidacy is on.
