Good news, bad news, good news: Rudy Guiliani will NOT be Attorney General, Rudy Guiliani WILL be Secretary of State, we will no longer be in doubt as to "why they hate us..."
It is hard to conjure up a more toxic collection of misfiring neural networks than Giuliani. He combines sumg incompetence (he ignored years of urgent suggestions too move his NYC security hub out of the World Trade Center) a megalomaniacal zeal for power, a vindictive pettiness that is legendary, and an almost autistic inability to imagine how he is seen by others.
The only guy who is worse is his boss.
I have always loved wars that carry a name reminiscent of what was once, apparently, considered a severe enough international breach so as to justify the projection of deadly, even occasionally existentially terminal, force.
Thus, the War of Jenkins' Ear.
Conversely, the war following upon "The Defenestration of Prague" merely went down in history as The Thirty Years' War. (We are past half way there in Afghainistan, but I digess...)
What a lost opportunity.
I'm already looking for the "War of Ali's Finger" the first time some Iranian sailor flips the bird in the general direction of a US vessel, presuming someone on board has a cell phone (good bet...)
Like Trump, Giuliani has become more and more floridly incoherent.
He is bound to go all Skeletor at just the wrong moment.
