Giuliani backs down

Yesterday, Rudy Giuliani made the plainly false statement that he had faced the same health risks as the recovery workers on the 9/11 pile.

Today, he backed off that statement.

Several points. 1) I find it interesting that Giuliani got so flustered that he blurted that out. (Ferrets?)

2) It's easily, provably wrong.

3) It's also a huge mistake for Giuliani to enter into a battle with the 9/11 rescue workers. (Does he really want to try to one up the working class heroes who got sick on the 9/11 pile while he went out and made tens of millions?)

4) And, again Rudy goes to friendly talk radio to try and mitigate his mistakes. (Right sided talk radio is the main protector of his "hero" status. They still gush over him.)

Like this is the battle Giuliani wants,
"He is such a liar, because the only time he was down there was for photo ops with celebrities, with politicians, with diplomats," said deputy fire chief Jimmy Riches, who spent months digging for his firefighter son.

"On 9/11 all he did was run. He got that soot on him, and I don't think he's taken a shower since."
