The Giuliani Lexicon: A Noun, A Verb, and 9/11

Joe Biden justified his presidential campaign by getting off the best line of Tuesday night’s debates. Opining that Rudy Giuliani is “probably the most underqualified man since George Bush to seek the presidency,” he averred:

“There’s only three things he mentions in a sentence — a noun, a verb, and 9/11. There’s nothing else! There’s nothing else! And I mean this sincerely. He’s genuinely not qualified to be president.”

Someone finally said it: the wannabe Emperor has no clothes. 

Here‘s the video.

    hahaha

  • I wouldn’t say he justified his campaign (Biden is as unqualified to run as Juliani) but touche.

  • Just like you said in an interview with scott horton: “its all about appearances, its not about reality” I truly hope one day the united stations will wake up and actually vote on something other than fucking flag lapelles and hair cuts.

  • Marycatherine Barton

    And, by now, Hillary should have pointed this out about Rudy.

  • Raimondo was correct in his characterization of guiliani in a reality based sense: “Fit to be a doorman”

  • Bob

    The only things we know, for sure, about Rudy are: he married his cousin, he authorized the purchase of radios that didn’t allow the NYFD to talk with the NYPD, and he walks hunched over because he has man breasts.

    Giuliani was always a fraud and it’s about time that he is made aware that he is seen for the fool that he is.
    He’s in it for the money.He knows that he has as much a chance of being President of this country as Sharpton or Obama.
    It will be interesting to now ,hear what comes out of his mouth.

  • Dick

    Even if Joe ‘lifted’ it, which he probably did, it was a good one.

  • Eugene Costa

    Biden recently publicly declared himself a Zionist. Does that mean he puts Israel first? Rather a strange declaration for a United States Senator. One might have expected, say, “Constitutionalist” or something along those lines.

  • Eugene Costa

    Oh, and Senator Biden, “Zionist” is an adjective last time I looked.

    Pot calling the kettle a hack.

    • MML

      Zionist is an adjective and a noun, you twat.

      • Eugene Costa

        “Zionist” is NOT an adjective then?

        MML should look up the suffix, which is ancient Greek.

        And certainly in English is it also a noun. The subtilty over MML’s head is that if I say, “Where the Zionist congregate”, for example, as behind Biden, it is an adjective used as a noun.

        “Twat”? Care to grace the forum with the etymology?

  • Eugene Costa

    Online Etymology Dictionary:

    twat 1656, of unknown origin. A general term of abuse since 1920s.

    The T-word occupies a special niche in literary history, however, thanks to a horrible mistake by Robert Browning, who included it in ‘Pippa Passes’ (1841) without knowing its true meaning. ‘The owls and bats,/Cowls and twats,/Monks and nuns,/In a cloister’s moods.’ Poor Robert! He had been misled into thinking the word meant ‘hat’ by its appearance in ‘Vanity of Vanities,’ a poem of 1660, containing the treacherous lines: ‘They’d talk’t of his having a Cardinalls Hat,/They’d send him as soon an Old Nuns Twat.’ (There is a lesson here about not using words unless one is very sure of their meaning.) [Hugh Rawson, “Wicked Words,” 1989]

    Biden is as much trash as Giuliani.

  • Bartcop wishes someone will hold a counter at a Giuliani speech, ala football down counter, and flip to a new number every time he invokes 911.

    He said he’ll buy whoever does this a car. It just needs to make to to major news coverage.

    “Screwing with Rudy

    This is a great idea I had years and years ago, but it’s still good and would work today.
    If somebody does this, and makes the national news, I’ll buy you a car.

    At a football game, there’s a guy on the sidelines with a pole and on top of the pole there are
    numbers that he flips for each down. When there’s a first down, he flips the numbers until
    a giant “1” is showing so the quarterback can keep track of the downs. Let’s say the team
    gets five yeards on the next play, so the fella turns the numbers and now it says “2.”

    OK, so here’s what we do to Rudy:

    You go to one of his speeches with your pole made up with more than numbers 1, 2, 3 and 4.
    Each time Rudy says “9-11,” you flip the numbers like the guy at the football game.

    At first, you probably won’t even be noticed, but as time goes by, and Rudy says “9-11”
    6-8 times, people might start to notice. Pretty soon, as the numbers get up to, say, twenty,
    the people might start to take notice and they might even start laughing.

    Joe Biden had a great line about Rudy, “All he ever says is one noun, one verb and 9-11.”
    Rudy thinks he can “9-11” himself into the White House and I say he can’t.

    Pretty soon people will start laughing every time he says “9-11,”
    so why don’t we start them laughing right now?”
