At this point, Lynnrockets’ Blast-Off will hold off on commenting upon the Keith Olbermann/MSNBC divorce for two reasons. First of all, we do not yet have a fact-based explanation for the split and therefore, any comment would be based upon mere conjecture (then again, that has never stopped us before). More importantly however, it seems that every other blog is already commenting upon what little we know about the break-up and we do not want to pile-on when we have little original content to contribute. But do not worry Rocketeers, until we learn more about Olbermann, we do have this tasty tidbit…
Add another crackpot to the 2012 Republican list of potential Presidential candidates. Despite his disastrous attempt at running for our nation’s highest office in 2008, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani says he hasn’t ruled out a second try in 2012. Yikes, we can possibly add him to a list of crazies that may include Mitt(wit) Romney, Tim (Good’n) Pawlenty, Bobby Jindel(Bells), Sarah “Death Panels” Palin, Newt “The Serial Philanderer” Gingrich and Mike Huckabee(Hound). What a bunch of rotten bananas.
Once again Giuliani is saying that the door is “absolutely” open to making another run for the White House. “I will take a look at 2012. It’s really a question of: can I play a useful role? Would I have a chance of getting the nomination? Those are things I’ll have to evaluate, you know, as the year goes along,” said Giuliani, in an interview Thursday on CNBC’s “The Kudlow Report.”
Giuliani also told CNN‘s Piers Morgan he’s more likely to run for president if former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin runs. The cross-dressing former Mayor of New York City said running against Palin for the 2012 GOP nomination would show him as a moderate Republican and “The more Republicans in which I can show a contrast, probably the better chance, the better chance that I have.”
This begs the question however, What will Giuliani talk about in the 2012 campaign season? Remember when during the 2008 race, then Delaware Sen. Joe Biden drew laughter and applause when he ridiculed the former New York City mayor during the debate at Drexel University? In response to Giuliani’s comments that no Democratic candidate has enough executive experience to lead, Biden called Giuliani “the most under-qualified man since George W. Bush to seek the presidency”? How about when Biden followed that up with, “There’s only three things he mentions in a sentence: a noun, and a verb and 9/11″? Ahh, those halcyon days of Rudy Giuliani and 9/11.
His Presidential run was a joke, but as the saying goes, “you can throw away the poop but not the stink”. Actually, we are not sure if that is truly a saying, but if it isn’t, it should be. Honestly though, Giuliani seems to pop up more than the pesky rodent in the “Whack-a-Mole” carnival midway game. Let’s hope he runs again, if for no other reason than for the laughs.

In New York Town on the air-waves
Rudy does have a lot to say
He just sits there and lies but to him we are wise
He appears in prime-time and repeats his tired lines
He was king ding-a-ling-a-ling, ding-a-ling-a-ling
And a wife cheating fella
He can’t see his stupidity, his stupidity
He’s blind like Helen Keller
As he speaks watch the drool, that Rudy is a fool
All his friends on Wall Street think that he can’t be beat
He is a cliché machine all of the time he is
Scuzza me, but you see, he’s from the G.O.P.
(He just sits there and lies but to him we are wise
(He appears in prime time and repeats his tired lines
(He was king ding-a-ling-a-ling, ding-a-ling-a-ling
And a wife cheating fella) Go to Hell, cheating fella
He can’t see his stupidity, his stupidity
He’s blind like Helen Keller) Sorry fella
Rudy’s angry and cruel and stubborn like a mule
He is doomed to repeat Presidential defeat
He tells us of his dreams but his words have no
Scuzza me, Rudy G., but we hardly knew ye
Cuz you’re boring (so boring)
See, we’re snoring
