Rudy submits an ad to the NY Times citing Hillary’s “the willing suspension of disbelief” comment, reviewing Petraeus’ record as a decorated military leader and closing in bold with ” Who should America listen to.. A decorated soldier’s commitment to defending America, or Hillary Clinton’s commitment to defending MoveOn.org”? It closes with his own quote: “These times call for statemanship not politicians spewing political venom.” The NY Times won’t take the ad and then Rudy can attack the liberal media as well as Hillary. Bonus points to the staffer who thought up this one.
UPDATE: And Rudy is the only candidate on TV tonight. This is where a good campaign shows–getting their guy out front and center on the highest profile issue of the day. On Larry King he was energized and dogged– support Petraeus, shame on Hillary and if we abandon Iraq now the war with Islamic terrorists gets harder, not easier.
