Rudolph the Red-Nosed Former Mayor and now Presidential Candidate and the mob

20 09 2007

The New York media, fond as it is of pairs (pickles and pastrami, Jeter and A-Rod, intersection names [10th and 3rd, for example]) has now focused its attention on a new duo engaged in a dance: Rudy Giuliani and the mafia. The thing is, they’re not actually engaged in any such thing. Just let the hyperlinks tell the story…

Giuliani’s signature move while working as a lawyer in New York — and his ticket to Gracie Manor — was dissecting organized crime. So the relationship between the man and the mob, once so adversarial, has now somehow achieved a status of tacit mutual approval within the media.

First, there was the story of Robert Duvall’s endorsement of Giuliani for president, which drew the headline “Corleone Consiglieri Endorses Giuliani.”

Giuliani finally brought pomodoro-hot scorn upon himself from the Italian-American community by, for the 875th straight day, using his Don Corleone impression when speaking in public.

Then the Village Voice uncovered the one pocket of organized crime that Giuliani didn’t seek when he felled much of NY’s mob scene: school buses. By Tom Robbins. 

Oh yes. The Voice also has a picture of Pink’s nipples. A picture taken by Bryan Adams. That Bryan Adams.

(And that picture is here)
