Who said that? Rudy Giuliani circa 1994 (via Andrew Sullivan). Man, I thought I was kidding when I said he ran New York like a fascist regime.
Glad to see Sully's catching on. Rudy was the mayor who tried to shut down an art exhibit he didn't like (entirely on the advice of fools like William Donahue), tried doggedly to ban New York Magazine's subway ads when they gently made fun of him, and tried to exploit 9/11 to extend his term in office.By Paul, at 2:40 PM
The man is an authoritarian, no doubt about it. Of course, that's what many of his supporters like about him. Oh, yeah, It Can Happen Here.
Hey, do you remember when the Republicans were the party of "freedom from the government."By Arbitrista, at 3:16 PM
