Rudy G: What Happened Tommy?
I'm not pinning Rudy Giuliani's major loss in the Sunshine State on poor Tommy Jardon, but I've heard from several folks up here in Michigan (mainly Miami transplants), that the Cuban-American community was going for Giuliani. Does anyone remember what I've been saying for years now? The CANF/FNCA, since the days of Jorge Mas Canosa, have been very, very, very tight with CT Senator Joe Lieberman. In fact, in 2000, many of the most hawkishly Red Cubans (no pun intended... lol), turned their backs on Bush/Cheney and voted gore/LIEBERMAN -- I kid you not.
To many Cuban Americans, issues like Choice, Gay Marriage, or the price of rice in Texas are of little-to-no-value; they want hard stances on Cuba; they want more Cuban children going to bed hungry at night, less medicine on the island, it's like they derive sexual pleasure from Cuba's misery, but they're excuse is that they want to end Communism, but let's not discuss the criminal embargo any further, let me just say that Lieberman is tough on Cuba, tough on "terrorism" (really that translates to any interest that's counter-Zionist, including even Fmr. US President Jimmy Carter, lol), and so on. "But how?!" More counter-terrorism than Giuliani?
Rudy Giuliani is NOT counter-terrorism, he's soley milking 9-11, been doing so since 9-12 and the jig is up, people have had it with him, I had it with him when he 'cleaned up Times Square', he ruined the seediness of the Big Apple, now it's all Walt-fuckin-Disney, Starbucks, & Macy's (FUCK THAT!), where are the dingy XXX bookstores, the skid row crowd, the hell's kitchen riff raff, the punks, the sheer tackiness & sleaze... now it's all corporate shit.
Still, it would have been fun to have seen Rudy in the White House. He probably would have run with Chertoff, placed Larry Craig as Secretary of State, Gary Hart as Surgeon General, Ted Kennedy as Secretary of Health, & possibly tried to use the CIA to off Ron Paul, lol.
I'm also very proud of myself for not posting a photo of Cindy McCain, for 54 or w/e, she's ravishingly attractive, my goodness! She's prolly the best dressed gal of the whole process, trailed by Hillary & Rudy Giuliani.
My Take On The Gainesville City Commission Races
I will hold out for the run-offs on those, but I think the people spoke their conscience. Once again for all you aspiring Keys, look how much help Agrusa got... might as well live can this pipedream that by joining FBK you're joining some Skull & Bones'like secret society -- b/c you're not. Poor Agrusa...
Per Armando Grundy... what can I say? I read former SFCC student? Are we moving on from Alachua County? I hope not; if Armando left town, who would Jeff McAdams have to hang out with... And Stafford, 'oh I just can't fathom the mental anguish the entire ACREC would go through...
I was a little taken a back by Agrusa's decision to go boozing after his loss... I wonder if Ed Braddy was around...
Well anyways, time to go study. Peace Out.
