Maybe He Thought They Said "Robocop"

Former New York mayor Rudy Guiliani has jumped on the GOP robocall bandwagon and recorded his own message in favor of John McCain. In the calls, being used in Colorado and Wisconsin, Guiliani says that Obama is soft on crime because he doesn't support mandatory prison sentences for crimes ranging from robbery to sexual molestation to murder.

Here's the transcript of the call:
Hi, this is Rudy Giuliani, and I'm calling for John McCain and the Republican National Committee because you need to know that Barack Obama opposes mandatory prison sentences for sex offenders, drug dealers, and murderers.

It's true, I read Obama's words myself. And recently, Congressional liberals introduced a bill to eliminate mandatory prison sentences for violent criminals -- trying to give liberal judges the power to decide whether criminals are sent to jail or set free. With priorities like these, we just can't trust the inexperience and judgment of Barack Obama and his liberal allies. This call was paid for by the Republican National Committee and McCain-Palin 2008 at 866 558 5591.

There are two notable things about this call. The first, of course (and I'm sure you noticed, too), is that it's the first time in seven years Rudy Giuliani has uttered two consecutive paragraphs without saying the words "nine-eleven."

The second feature of these calls is who is making them and where they're going. Do Republicans really, truly believe that people in Colorado and Wisconsin are swayed by Rudy Giuliani? Do they not know that he's pretty much a joke west of the Poconos (maybe east, too, but I'll leave that to them)? So, yeah... Rudy... by all means... tell us all about the crime-spree loving Obama and his quest to free all the child molesters and murderers to run wild in the streets again.

Oh, yeah. And don't forget the terrorists.
