Video: Unprompted Huffington attack on Giuliani fails epically

posted at 6:22 pm on April 6, 2010 by Allahpundit

Late afternoon comedy via the ‘Busters from this a.m.’s “Morning Joe.” Rudy was on to talk about his Rubio endorsement, Arianna was on to talk about god knows what, but once she found herself in the presence of a prominent Republican, she found her purpose and went to work. The interesting thing about this is trying to figure out whether she really wanted to attack because Giuliani’s endorsement bothers her that much or whether years of being a nutroots icon simply left her feeling obliged. The HuffPo faithful would, let’s face it, be crestfallen if she declined an opportunity to speak Trooth to wingnut Power. So here we go with the kitchen sink approach, starting with Giuliani’s association with Bernie Kerik, downshifting into his lame presidential campaign, and then grasping at his — gasp — support for waterboarding, which fully 58 percent of voters supported in the case of Abdulmutallab just three months ago. What she’s trying to do, essentially, is make the case that he’s somehow not fit for mainstream American politics — which is the left’s view of all prominent Republicans, of course — but … she just can’t pull it off. And darned if Scarborough doesn’t remind her of it every step of the way.

Not the first time she’s humiliated herself in attacking Giuliani on MSNBC, incidentally.

Arianna Huffington represents liberalism in its final throes: desperate, reaching, and nearly unconscious.

The time of liberalism’s death–at least for a generation– will be recorded in November.

At least AirHead Huffington was not stupid enough to bring up failed marriages.

Huffington is a great example of what happens when you surround yourself with azz-kissers and lackys. You are totally unprepared for real debate.

The Zsa Zsa Gabor of the blogosphere is calling Rudy a joke?

How can she have so may followers and she completely makes herself out to be such a tool?
Please HA, Ed and AP no more links to her. She’s totally blown whatever credibility she ever had (which was none to me) with that interview. My pets have more credibility than her.
Rudy was the face of NYC after 9/11. Suprisingly so many people have forgotten. Especially those on the LEFT. And yes Bernie Kerik was and is a Patriot and his was career and name was ruined by the LEFT. No thanks to Huffington….. NYPD and Transit lost 60 brave souls.
Kerik lost 60 of his men and women. Where were you Huiffington? Probabaly watching Oprah and practicing your Chinese.

What a bunch of losers we have in this country. Not wishing to contribute, but wanting to find fault in those who actually do.

Love her Huffington Post. The most censored thing on the internet. No need for vile words. Just say anything to the right of Karl Marx and it either is censored or scrubbed within minutes. Just like her president, transparency is so important. She’s a walking straw man argument and a communist to boot. When she donates 90% of her net worth to starving children in Africa I might start to listen to her communist BS. Until then she’s just another limosine liberal. Bitch…..
