Earlier today in New Hampshire Rudy Giuliani compared his lead in the polls to the record of the New England Patriots’ football team, undefeated this season.
“I’m ahead of any Republican candidate for president either 23-0 or 15-0. That’s almost a Patriots score.”
For some New Yorkers, this might call to mind a moment earlier this fall when their former mayor said he was rooting for the Boston Red Sox in the World Series, a team much closer to the New Hampshire primary than to his home city. [AP]
