Giuliani Stays Ahead of the Game

America’s Mayor prepared for tonight’s Republican debate by going to a ball park last night. It couldn’t have been relaxing since he saw his beloved New York Yankees eliminated from the American League playoffs and. at the same time, had to face the fact that front runners and favorites can be beaten.

But if he loses, the scoreboard shows it’s unlikely to be to the former Governor of the hated Boston Red Sox’s state, Mitt Romney.

A new Gallup Poll today shows Rudy 12 percentage points ahead of Fred Thompson, 16 over John McCain and in another ballpark from Romney, whose free-spending still leaves him at 9 percent, barely ahead of practically penniless Mike Huckabee at 7.

Giuliani will be saddened by the Yankees’ loss not only by empathy for the ball club he loves but a blow to his New Hampshire campaign where he has been connecting with Red Sox fans with good-natured bantering about their respective teams.

Now, as they say in the national pastime, the fat lady has sung for his favorite team, but there hasn’t been a peep out of her for his Presidential campaign.

Maybe Guiliani will be advanced because the Yankees lost. He can now say he is cheering for the Red Sox to win it all. New Hampshirites also think they have some connection with the Boston team probably because they have none of their own so Guiliani can pick up point by showing up with a Red Sox cap.

It's always been surprising to me that G gets called the "front runner". I mean, take away 9/11 and he's absolutely a nobody who wouldn't even be noticed. Which shows me that there are some powerful forces backing him up, raising him from obscurity and maintaining his myth in the execrable MSM.
