From a reader: The New York Sun videoblogs about Judi on the stump for her husband, and the results are not good.
Here, she starts off by saying, “I wanted to tell you all a little bit about how Rudy and I came to be our team together.” The problem with this is that we all know their relationship began as an affair, while he was still married — be it in a publicly “distant” (that’s how the press likes to put it) marriage. She then goes on to describe some of their early flirtations.
I don’t think I was the only one at this point thinking: Ick.
The former Ms. Nathan is, after all, describing the beginning of an affair that would lead to an ugly and painful divorce that still is affecting the former mayor’s relationship with his children.
Later in her brief remarks, Mrs. Giuliani describes how being married to the former mayor makes it easier for her to raise money for her chosen causes. “You can then pick up the phone as Judith Giuliani,” she said, and speak to people with deep pockets “who might not normally take my telephone calls.”
The part that jumped out at me was that in one of their early flirtations, she asked him, ‘What do you know about infectious diseases?”
All together now…ICK!
Oh, the Sun blogger wrote of Gov. and Mrs. Romney:
“…they’re high-school sweethearts, have a bunch of kids and grandkids, and have celebrated some ludicrous number of wedding anniversaries. Mr. Giuliani’s personal life is the polar opposite of all that.”
