Fred! on Leno

Reviews seem to agree he wasn't Mr. Adrenaline, but I'm not sure that's the image he's going for. Decide for yourselves.

Right now I'm lobbying Allah hard to cut and post Giuliani's interview with Hannity from last night's H&C. He was outstanding, at least on my top three priorities, including on amnesty. He has now come 'round, at least rhetorically, to the strong enforcement-first position, noting that the government currently has all necessary mandates and laws to actually pursue security without need of additiona laws or amnesties, if only it had the will to enforce its own laws.

Pro-lifers will be underwhelmed by his commitment to decrease abortions and increase adoptions, but they will most likely be impressed by the rest.

I haven't even bothered covering Giuliani lately, having written him off as a non-serious candidate due to his suicidal embrace of pro-choice politics. But last night's interview really reignited my old Rudy fever.

Oh... The long knives are out for Fred!

Did I say "long knives"? I meant "blunt, badly-balanced rusty old short knives."

The Politico runs down Fred!'s possible liabilities with the Republican base. This isn't even weak tea; it's just a brown crayon dipped in hot water. (I think Linus from Peanuts made "hot chocolate" that way one time.)

And the DNC is going to have to do a little bit better too. They made "allegations" against Fred! -- like his allegedly irresponsible noting that the KGB dictator of Russia is in fact a Russian KGB dictator -- which were so thoroughly rubbished in their very comments section so as to require their shutting down the thread in embarrassment.

You're really not bringing your A-game, fellas. I don't think Fred! has brought his A game yet either -- and yet his B-game has resulted in either tying Rudy for the national lead or else putting him in striking-range second place -- which means you're really going to have to work much, much harder once he does.
