Update: Why Giuliani Is Unfit to be President

Rudolph Giuliani was, in most respects, the best New York City mayor since perhaps Fiorello LaGuardia. Like his fellow Italian-American, Giuliani thought he knew what was best for the city and worked relentlessly to implement his vision. And who can forget the sight of Giuliani striding fearlessly toward the burning World Trade Center towers on 9/11, as well as his decisive leadership in the following days and weeks?

All good, as they say, but Giuliani (at left in the photo with the fella he'd like to succeed) has a flaw that would make him a disaster as president.
He's an asshole.
This theme keeps recurring in in-depth articles about the man, as well as "Giuliani Time," a brutal documentary by Kevin Keating that reveals America's Mayor to be an intemperate and intolerant twit prone to bouts of anger when he doesn't get his way.

Now the New York Observer weighs in on Giuliani, whom they call "Bubble Boy."
