Rudy Giuliani: One Scary Bastard

Of all the presidential candidates with a chance to actually win, Rudolph Giuliani is the one that scares me the most. Oh, none of the Republicans excite me, but Giuliani could actually continue the ways of the worst administration ever (that would be GW Bush's).

Why do I say this? Well, consider this piece from the New York Times. Among the many nuggets in this article is this paragraph that should send shivers down the spine of any sentient being:

Mr. Giuliani’s team includes Norman Podhoretz, a prominent neoconservative who advocates bombing Iran “as soon as it is logistically possible”; Daniel Pipes, the director of the Middle East Forum, who has called for profiling Muslims at airports and scrutinizing American Muslims in law enforcement, the military and the diplomatic corps; and Michael Rubin, a scholar at the American Enterprise Institute who has written in favor of revoking the United States’ ban on assassination.

I guess I'd prefer Fred Thompson (even if he is a lazy, looney bird) to that!
