Poor Rudy Giuliani


This is heartbreaking: it Rudy Giuliani can’t pay off his campaign debts (you know, from the campaign that spent $50 million for one delegate), so he is shaking down other Republican candidates for money:

Mr. Giuliani’s aides have told the National Republican Congressional Committee and Congressional candidates that if he makes an appearance, he wants the candidates to help him get rid of his presidential campaign debt.

The unusual request underscores the financial predicament Mr. Giuliani finds himself in, after he ended his presidential bid this year with roughly $3.6 million in campaign debt. Traditionally, prominent party figures help lower-tier candidates by headlining fund-raising events in return for good will and future political alliances, but do not receive funds themselves.

Is it wrong to enjoy the continuing collapse of the Republican party and its symbols of excess? Clearly not. It might be wrong that I am enjoying it this much, though. 🙂

I can never understand why these rich megalomaniacs can’t pay off their own campaign debt.


I suspect his Saudi friends will bail him out.
