82. who remembers when Giuliani was a total asshole in NY?
Before the Repukes elevated him to messiah-like status in the wake of 9/11? He screwed over just about every aspect of the City that wasn't white-middle class cops from Queens and Staten Island. He ushered in crap like K-Mart, Olive Garden and other box stores, turning parts of the City into the psedu-malls of AnyTown, USA. Sure people like to talk about how he lowered crime (along with a sky-rocketing rise in complaints to the CCRB) and increased tourism (by making Times Square into a virtual Disney theme park). What a prick.


(In the interest of full disclosure, I thought he did a great job in the aftermath of 9/11 to help calm our shocked and scared shitless nerves, its the whitewashing of his past and demagoguery that followed which nauseates me.)
