A reader reminds me of Rudy Giuliani's utter disgust at the notion proffered by Ron Paul in a Republican debate that 9/11 may have had some explanatory roots in the foreign policy of the US for the past fifty years. So how does Giuliani stand and proudly accept the endorsement of a man who said that Americans were actually responsible for 9/11 - because of their alleged immorality? If you were appalled by Ron Paul's explicatory analysis, wouldn't you be even more enraged by Robertson's causal analysis? Especially since that would also apply to Giuliani himself? Does Rudy believe that he helped cause 9/11? If he doesn't, why did he just accept the endorsement of a man who does?

One possible silver lining: those American Jews leaning toward Giuliani may be a little more leery now that he has been endorsed by an anti-Semite like Robertson.
