Don’t Mess With Yankee Stadium

By on 7.25.07 | 10:42PM

So guess which Presidential candidate called federal bureaucrats a bunch of "pointy-headed stupid morons"? Peter Robinson, former Reagan speech writer who penned the "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!" speech, recounts in details too amusing to paraphrase his encounter with Rudy Giuliani and the discussion about what happened when federal inspectors went looking for violations of disability laws at Yankee Stadium. Apparently the Rudy people liked it so much they linked to their campaign website. If you are trying to make the point that your candidate is the one to take on the federal bureaucracy and is not about to buy into the Beltway mentality, a story like this is too good to be true. It is also very, very funny.
