And, it might be nice if we could get Ron Paul to offer to Leno a request from the Sex Pistols, if we could get some suggestions - maybe Holidays in the Sun - is a nice enough title, and old material.
"Holidays in the Sun" was the fourth single by the British punk rock band Sex Pistols. It was released on October 15, 1977, and proved to be the last single from the group's original line-up. The song was inspired by a trip to the Channel Island of Jersey, The band was feeling oppression in London before they headed to shows in Berlin, Germany.
"We tried our Holiday In The Sun in the isle of Jersey and that didn't work. They threw us out"
Giuliani 4th or 5th in Iowa ?
MSNBC Hardball's Chris Matthews has former Democrat, former Independent, former mayor - but still a permanent draft dodger - Rudy Giuliani as running as low in the pack as fourth in the Iowa Straw Poll results for later this summer.
Of course, if former senator, skirt-chasing cancer patient Fred Thompson enters the race by August Rudy could be fifth.
U.S. v. Giuliani
"If Rudy does the right thing, then he doesn't have to go to jail."
Rudy Giuliani self-promotes himself as strong on the WOT, while all the while up to September 11 he was busy fighting the United States government to ignore INS rules and policy so that the NYC mayor could allow safe haven of criminals on expired visas with his “sanctuary city” police policy – being the true closet libertarian on immigration that he is.
Does Rudy and his cohorts recall the words of the 43rd President of these United States on the evening of September 11, 2001 excerpted below.
“We will make no distinction between the terrorists and those who harbor them !” - George W. Bush
Friends of Condi Rice VP acknowledge with us that during the last debate Rudy "outkicked his coverage."
Pope Benedict v. Giuliani
Former Democrat / former Independent / former NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani – now running as a draft-dodger “Republican” may just be contemplating Pope Benedict XVI’s edict for excommunication of “fake-catholic” (1) politicians who support abortion (Catholic News May 10, 2007 ).
Along with Giuliani’s (2) advocacy of the death penalty, and also (3) Rudy Giuliani’s marriage to his second cousin without receiving a matrimonal dispensation – for which approval is typically only granted for extending situations such as “a bun in the oven” ----see (1) above ---
The bread of life isn't the only thing that is burning fast -
Rudy is already toast.
Next GOP Debate June 5
The next GOP debate sponsored by the New Hampshire Institute of Politics will be on June 5, 2007 along with co-sponsors the New Hampshire Union Leader, Channel 9 ABC affiliate WMUR-TV, and CNN at Saint Anselm College, a Benedictine Catholic liberal arts school in Manchester, New Hampshire.
U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, a strict constitutionalist and fierce anti-war critic, was the Libertarian nominee for president in 1988.
Paul, a nine-term congressman who represents a district just south of Houston that includes Galveston and stretches along the Gulf Coast nearly to Corpus Christi, describes himself as a lifelong Libertarian running as a Republican.
Paul has spent most of his career outside the GOPs traditional circles. He limits his view of the role of the federal government to those specifically laid out in the U.S. Constitution. As a result, he sometimes casts votes that appear at odds with his constituents and other Republicans.
Paul, for example, was the only Republican congressman to vote against Department of Defense appropriations for fiscal year 2007, which he opposed because of the war in Iraq — a war he says is "not necessary for our actual security."

All flipper and No Gipper
In the 1970s, The Rolling Stone began to make a mark for its political coverage and now in 2007 it is getting in to the fray with an article in it's May 31 edition where Tim Dickinson takes shots at the GOP race with a piece titled :
ALL FLIPPER, NO GIPPER - The GOP's pathetic candidadates, or : Why three wrongs can't please the right."
Among some of the harshest criticism is that directed at Willard (Mitt)Romney -
"Romney has flip-flopped on nearly every political position he has ever taken."
and cancer patient Fred Thompson - "This is a man who served eight undistinguished, skirt-chasing years in the Senate before stepping down because the job required too much effort - "I don't like spending fourteen- and sixteen-hour days voting" said Thompson.
The exception is the constitutionalist Republican from a Gulf Coast district of Texas - and another Ron - Ron Paul.
The "CEO of 9/11" - Rudy Giuliani
It is believed that the attacks were originally planned to be executed between March and September 2000 but eventually occurred on the morning of September 11, 2001, when nineteen terrorists affiliated with al-Qaeda hijacked four commercial passenger jet airliners.
But Atta and the al-Qaeda network patiently needed to wait for self-proclaimed "9/11 CEO" Rudy Giuliani to challenge the INS with his defiant Sanctuary City policy enabling the 19 terrorists to stay in the U.S. and use Giuliani's New York City as their launching platform.
Giuliani is a closet Libertarian on immigration and border control.
Constitutionalist Republican Dr. Ron Paul - whose border policy includes opposition to the North American Union uniting Canada, the United States, and Mexico and NO AMNESTY is the safest policy America can establish in the WOT.
The "CEO of 9/11" - Rudy Giuliani - IS just that precisely - his actions enabled Atta and the gang of 19 to carry out the attacks against the United States - which cost the world 2,973 people lives with an additional 24 missing and presumed dead.
His disregard for INS policy and U.S. law in the months previous to September 11, 2001 culminated with his disdain for the Supreme Court ruling against him as late as September 5, 2001 -
We just thought that you would want to know what Rudy was up to BEFORE September 11..
"Bin Ladin’s grievance with the United States may have started in reaction to specific U.S. policies . . ."
Is Paul having an impact?
Asked on Thursday 05.17.2007 for MSNBC National affairs writer Tom Curry's article what impact he is having on the Republican presidential race, Paul said, “I think it might be significant that one of the so-called front-runners needed to attack me on national television. They must think I’m having enough of an impact that they have to try to discredit me. That was the purpose of the (Giuliani) attack: to discredit me so that my foreign policy challenge wouldn’t be heard.”
He added, “What annoys them the most is that I don’t criticize foreign policy from the Left; I criticize it from the Right, from a conservative viewpoint, from a constitutional viewpoint. It drives them nuts.”
Paul, a ten-term House member from Texas and the 1988 Libertarian candidate for president, admits most Republican voters don’t agree with his non-interventionist approach to foreign policy.
“I think the majority of Republicans right now are in the camp of intervention — but they’re also asking a lot of questions because of what happened in last year’s election and they know that they lost the election over foreign policy,” he said.
Complete U.S. exit from Iraq
Paul supports withdrawing all U.S. troops from Iraq — not leaving some behind for counter-terrorism operations and training Iraqi soldiers, as advocated by Democratic contenders Sen. Hillary Clinton and Sen. Barack Obama.
And what of the consequences of U.S. exit from Iraq?
“It may be much better,” Paul said. “The Arab League may take over. Israel may be much more of a player there rather than us suppressing Israel. There’s all kinds of good things that could come of it.”
