If Rudy Giuliani has read Rudyard Kipling lately, his own self-imputed manliness may have fooled him - and CNN - into believing that he still has Presidential prospects.

In fact, Giuliani was adamantly rejected by the Republican Party, long before the normal people in America had a chance to pile on. The more people saw of Giuliani, the less they liked him, and these were Republican base voters, not exactly the most discerning witnesses to history in an America that couldn't really give a shit about any history that's not transparently mythic.

Giuliani is a has-been who clings to his press operation. For some reason, CNN has yet to figure that out. And here I thought the reason Ted Turner started CNN was to give America something besides New York.
