In case any of you have been wondering what former Repug presidential aspirant Rudy 9iullani has been up to lately…well, the New York Post (I have contacts everywhere!) tells us here that…
Anthony Carbonetti, who was senior strategist for Giuliani's failed presidential bid, has been suggested as a possible replacement (for NY state GOP chairman Joe Mondello), a move seen by some as a sign that Giuliani is making a play for the future - including a possible run for governor.Never too early to lay the groundwork for 2010, is it?
A GOP source suggested Giuliani pushed for Carbonetti, but several others disputed that.
Another top Giuliani adviser, Matt Mahoney, recently took the helm of the state GOP Senate committee.
And in other Rudy! news, Bernie Kerik surfaced recently to wax indignant over Little Scotty McClellan’s “kiss and tell” tome about how wonderful it was to hide Bushco’s dirty little secrets (with Scotty having “found religion” just a wee bit too late…Gail Collins of the New York Times opined on Kerik here). Bernie referred to McClellan personally (or perhaps only his book; not sure) as “DISLOYAL, SICKENING AND DESPICABLE DISLOYAL, SICKENING AND DESPICABLE” (gee Bernie, I hope you get that caps lock key fixed, caps lock key fixed).
Yep, you would know from whence you speak on that, wouldn’t you, Bernie (here).
