Bringing Back Rudy

This David Frum article on the veepstakes starts off kind of slow and earnest, but it closes with a great punchline:

I have my own personal nomination for vice president for McCain. It's Rudy Giuliani, precisely because he shares the vision of a practical, reforming, war-winning Republican Party that inspires John McCain, plus the stronger-than-usual grounds for hoping that he might be the rare candidate who can make a difference in an essential state--in this case, New Jersey.

Because more warmongering and corrupt associates is exactly what John McCain needs! At a minimum, I think this choice would be good news for liberal bloggers. Tim Pawlenty seems much less mockable.
