John blogged yesterday at the CNN political ticker about Pat Robertson’s recent endorsement of Rudy Giuliani. There is plenty of buzz about this issue, as dozens of comments were posted within hours. This morning, there are over 250 responses!
Pat Robertson is about as far right as you can go, and as it is widely-known, Giuliani is much more moderate. So it definately seems to have been an unlikely endorsement.
Sifting through some of the blog comments, you come across the usual yada yada yada of left-wingers and right-wingers going at each other, but there was one funny observation by someone in NY which I thought was rather amusing: “Look at the face on him – he looks like a crazed chipmunk about to bite someone.” But who was he referring to? Robertson or Giuliani? They both look a little over-excited in that photo! Too funny of an observation – but surprisingly, not entirely off base, lol.
John blogged that “Robertson has repeatedly praised Giuliani despite their major differences on social policy, such as abortion and gay marriage. Both men say a friendship developed after a long conversation on a plane during a trip to Israel several years ago. Another thing both men have in common is that they are prostate cancer survivors.”
Here he is reporting last night from South Carolina.
