When Even the Leftists Recognize There’s Something a Bit Off….

I’ve had some rather stout disagreements with Melissa McEwan [1] in the past.  But she seems to me to be on the verge of recognizing something here, somehting I’m willing to bet that a lot of liberals wished she wouldn’t. Matter of fact I think she won’t admit it to herself for the same reason.

She points to the same story I pointed to last night: [2]

Giuliani’s Mistress Used N.Y. Police as Taxi Service
November 29, 2007 3:18 PM

Richard Esposito Reports: [3]

Well before it was publicly known he was seeing her, then-married New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani provided a police driver and city car for his mistress Judith Nathan, former senior city officials tell the Blotter on ABCNews.com.

“She used the PD as her personal taxi service,” said one former city official who worked for Giuliani.

Says McEwan:

His then-mistress, now-wife. Which isn’t explained until paragraph three—otherwise known as about two paragraphs after people stop reading—itself tucked after a video link insert.

Subtext: Rudy’s wife is a slut! Hee hee hee!
It’s not like I think Rudy’s relationship history isn’t fair game; certainly it is, because he’s got no basis at all for not supporting same-sex marriage when his marital history is a total shambles, and his marriage mantra appears to be, approximately, “Sanctity schmanctity!”

But something about the sneering, sanctimonious luxuriating in the reminder, in the course of a story about allegedly defrauding taxpayers, that Judith Nathan was his mistress, that they were having a tawdry affair, that he is a lech and a philanderer, just irks the f*** out of me.

That point she notes should be the first indication, that what you’re dealing with is a hit piece.  It sad that she can’t manage to get to the next level of the analysis, but I suppose we have to take these things one step at a time.

What is that next level of analysis?

Usually, people waving that kind of judgment around in front of the voters, are people who don’t really give a damn about someone else’s personal relationships.  All they really care about is whether not that history can be used to gather political power to themselves.

And what New York democrat currently running for the White House, ostensibly against Rudy Giuliani, meets that description?
