Lord Giuliani's Arrogant Quote of the Day

Gawd. Who knew that GOP front-runner Rudy Giuliani was one of the 9/11 recovery workers who spent some "12 months sifting through toxic debris" looking for dead bodies?

Was Lady Judith there at our 9/11 hero's side, toiling through the toxic soup too?

"This is not a mayor or a governor or a President who's sitting in an ivory tower. I was at Ground Zero as often, if not more, than most of the workers. I was there working with them. I was exposed to exactly the same things they were exposed to. So in that sense, I'm one of them."

"'[Giuliani] is self-absorbed, arrogant and deluded,' said IAFF spokesman Jeff Zack."

"He is such a liar, because the only time he was down there was for photo ops with celebrities, with politicians, with diplomats," said deputy fire chief Jimmy Riches, who spent months digging for his firefighter son.

"On 9/11 all he did was run. He got that soot on him, and I don't think he's taken a shower since."

Harold Schaitberger, president of the International Association of Fire Fighters, a union that fiercely opposes Giuliani, said . . "I think he was simply showing what his true character is - a self-absorbed, self-deluded promoter."

What is it about the Republican Party that attracts such mind boggling arrogance?
