The "Conventional Wisdom" Strikes Again
Yet another journalist has penned a piece on Rudy that decides to replace critical analysis with tired, old, faulty assumptions about the Mayor's presidential chances.
Says Lee Bandy of The State:
"South Carolina Republicans love Rudy Giuliani.
But will they go so far as to vote for him for president?
Because the former New York City mayor is a moderate Republican who supports gun control, same-sex civil unions, embryonic stem-cell research and abortion rights — stands that put him at odds with the majority of the GOP’s conservative base."
Given that Bandy leads with this language, you'd think that he's under the impression that it's an original idea.
Ho hum. Wake me when the "conventional wisdom" of the MSM catches up with the true wisdom of the actual voters, who rank Rudy either first or a very close second in every empirical measure of Republican support.
