Giuliani Campaign Strategy Stolen (aka The Big Leak)

One of the great non-events of today was the leaking of the presidential campaign strategy of Rudolph Giuliani, evidently by one of his adversaries. As is often the case with this kind of thing, however, there appears to be, in Gertrude’s immortal words, “no there there.” This supposedly salacious document, the part available at this moment anyway, imparts such startling information as the Giuliani people intend to raise a lot of money from rich people. As that other great wag, Moon Unit Zappa, once said “Gag me with a spoon!” Other information that is supposed to be a revelation is that some of his people are worried that his divorces will come back to haunt him. In other words, this Great Book seems to be a recitation of the obvious, just as, I would be willing to bet, 99% of other campaign strategy books.
