Takedown: 2 Points!

I've been probably harsher to the Giuliani Campaign than most GOP candidates. It's not that I don't like the guy, I'm just resentful I didn't get hired for it.

Seeing this reply from Giuliani Communications Director Katie Levinson to last night's Democratic Debate -- in particularly Joe Biden's remark that all Rudy does is "Noun, Verb, 9/11" -- shows how not ready for primetime in the political comms game many bloggers are. (HT - K-Lo at the Corner)
New York City – The Rudy Giuliani Presidential Committee released the following statement from Communications Director Katie Levinson:

“As the pundits work to figure out who won the debate tonight, it’s pretty clear Rudy Giuliani was the real winner. It is increasingly apparent Rudy is the one the Democrats are most worried about running against in the general election.

“Senator Biden’s comments were of particular interest. The good Senator is quite correct that there are many differences between Rudy and him. For starters, Rudy rarely reads prepared speeches and when he does he isn’t prone to ripping off the text from others. And, Senator Biden certainly falls in to the bucket of those on the stage tonight who have never had executive experience and have never run anything. Wait, I take that back, Senator Biden has never run anything but his mouth.

“Such a desperate attack from Senator Biden is to be expected considering I – Katie Levinson – have a better chance of becoming President than he does.”

I'm with Kate O'Beirne, if this is what she has in store for Biden, Lord only knows what's in the pot shot folder on Hillary Clinton.

Truth be told, I'm sort of liking the pandering Rudy's doing on traditional social Republican issues. Not liking the pandering to Red Sox Nation. (What's up with that!)
