Somebody once said that you'll never go bust underestimating the American public.This has been graphically endorsed in a recent stunt by the egregious Rudi ("Rudi da Fireman") Guliani. This slimeball was addressing the NRA (National Rifle Association) and was seeking to address their concerns about his Christian credentials.
Not surprising, as Guliani has been married three times, as has his latest wife, and has made a habit of humping his secretaries. Even his own children (by his various wives) wont campaign for him. And the NRA ("In guns we trust") don`t like that, being firm believers in Jesus, family values, and shooting anything that moves. Da Fireman had also called the NRA a bunch of fanatics - at an earlier time when trying to get elected in New York where the NRA aren't too popular. So he had to burnush his credentials with this audience.
So, in mid-speech, the phone rang. "Oooh, it's from my dear wife" he trilled, presumably referring to his latest one. There then followed a series of cringe-making intimacies ("yes dearest, I love you darling, how I miss you, sweetheart") that would make a moonstruck teenager blush.
But it worked - there was hardly a dry eye in the room.
If this had happened in Europe there wouldn't have been a dry eye in the room either, because everyone would have been hysterical with laughter. How in the name of Jesus can Americans fall for this kind of thing? Is there any hope?
