Rudy to 9/11 Commission: If I had hair, I’d be drying it

Guiliani in dragKevin Drum pointed out (And Greg Sargent at TPM Cafe has follow-up) on this story from Newsday….it seems our tough-talking former mayor left the Iraq study group after two months, having failed to attend a single meeting.

Apparently, showing up would have cut into his intense speechifyin’, which garnered him just shy of $2 million in a single month.

I completely understand – you can’t really cover your annual nut until you have – what – $6- $8 million banked? I mean, it’s only national security, and a chance to increase your foreign policy bona fides by – well, you can’t calculate a fraction with zero on the bottom, can you? – as much as someone who has no foreign policy experience could possibly hope to do.

Seriously, if every journalist, and every one of the – how many are there now, 25? – Republican candidates for president doesn’t give him endless grief for this, then they are totally incompetent.

Sadly, my money’s on the Republicans this time.
