“A Day That Will Live in….”

News broke today that former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who presided over that great metropolis during the September 11 attacks, failed to attend the wedding of his two close friends, Howard Koeppel and Mark Hsiao, in whose home the mayor resided for six months during his very public divorce, well before the tragic events of September 11, 2001.

Giuliani, who mounted a campaign for the 2008 Presidency that was inexplicably unsuccessful despite his heroic efforts in the wake of the September 11 attacks, had this to say in defense of his decision not to attend: “9/11. Since the events of that tragic day, I feel I can no longer support gay unions. Such support could anger other nations, thereby triggering a repeat of the events of September 11. September 11, 2001, that is. Unlike some other people, I can’t forget what those attacks of September 11 — usually referred to as “9/11″ — did to the City of which I, at the time, was Mayor. National security is a priority, and I now support the public waterboarding of gay couples if it can avert a tragedy on the scale we, as a nation, and I — as Mayor — suffered on September 11, 2001.”

“I wish the couple, with whom I stayed for several months at a time well before September 11, every happiness,” concluded the former Mayor of New York City, which apparently will never be the same after the events of September 11, 2001.

    That’s a real head-scratcher. Makes him look like a total wimp.

    Every time I hear “Giuliani” I can’t help but see in my mind that photo of him in fishnet stockings.
