Giuliani: Rock Star; Rakin' in the Dough; the crowd goes WILD; God, I hate politics

So just about everyone hated Giuliani for what he "did to" New York and Times Square; enforcing ancient cabaret laws and all that. Rudy basically paved the way for the New New York that we all live in today and he did it with a polarizing iron fist.

Then September 11th came and once the smoke cleared Rudy reappeared somehow reborn as this modern-day Winston Churchill.

Last night, former mayor Rudy Giuliani got a huge round of applause after tearing Ron Paul of Texas a new asshole. Giuliani flipped the script on Paul when he appeared to suggest that the United States invited the attacks of Sept. 11 by having originally invaded Iraq. Paul basically lobbed a softball at Rudy, and he hit it out of the proverbial park.

“That’s really an extraordinary statement. That’s an extraordinary statement, as someone who lived through the attack of Sept. 11, that we invited the attack because we were attacking Iraq. I don’t think I’ve heard that before, and I’ve heard some pretty absurd explanations for Sept. 11.”

Mr. Giuliani was interrupted by a roar of cheers and applause. “And I would ask the congressman to withdraw that comment and tell us that he didn’t really mean that,” he said.

Wooooooooo! "RUDY! RUDY! RUDY! RUDY!" I can hear it now. God help us all.

Now we're hearing Rudy reported a whopping $16.1 million in earned income over the past 16 months, including millions in speaking fees. Giuliani has parlayed his image as an in-charge mayor during the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks into lucrative speaking fees and business enterprises.

And put this on your NetFlix cue if you haven't seen it already...
