Rudy's ready to run, but the dimwitted Republican rank-and-file eventually will learn the truth about him

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who's a hero in some people's eyes because of his fearless trek into Ground Zero territory on 9/11, made a move today toward launching a bid for the Republican presidential nomination.

Polls show Rudy running neck-and-neck with John McCain for the GOP nod, but there's also evidence that most Republicans are blithely oblivious of Giuliani's past and his views on the issues.

Here's a guy who's pro-choice on abortion, who's been married three times, who favors gay rights and who embraces god-knows what other positions that won't sit well with your average right-wing nutcase.

He's going to get laughed out of the race before Labor Day. Remember where you heard it. (Actually, if you've been paying any attention, you've heard it from lots of other observers.)
