Tancredo Drops Out; Bad Week For Giuliani

This blog has been keeping tabs on Tom Tancredo's quixotic quest of the White House even before he was made dark efforts to attain that unreachable ambition. Tom-Tom's obsession with illegal immigration masks the musk of a noxious crypto-racism always seething just below the oily surface. Tancredo's dropping out, but doing it strategically, annointing Mitt Romney as his successor and comrade-in-arms on the cusp of New Hampshire.

The significance of this late endorsement is twofold: one, it innoculates Romney against any more of Giuliani's adolescent illegal immigration Tartuffery. Imagine the spectacle of Romney and Giuliani -- liberal, sophisticated, Eastern seaboard Republican urban administrators both -- with pistols drawn at noon, spaghetti-western style, trying to out-cowboy and out-tobacco-spit each other on the subject of "them -- gritty close up -- Dayum Mexicans (Averted Gaze)."

As if this weren't a bad enough moment in Giuliani Time, Il Doucebag had a impromptu visit to the Emergency Room. Giuliani really does losing badly. Remember the aftermath of his race against that largely ineffective David Dinkins where Rudy essentially shadowed the Mayor, like a jackal corraling a wounded gazelle, for years --! -- after he lost the Mayoralty by a razor-thin margin.

And then Giulianus Maximus pulled out of his Senate race with Hillary Clinton when it became clear he was going to have his ass handed to him by the Clinton-Rangel machine. It will be interesting and instructive to see how Giuliani, egomaniac, handles the inevitable ass-whipping that is coming his way fast and furious come election night in New Hampshire in January.

Fer realsies!
