Maybe I’m the only one bothered by this, and it wouldn’t be the first time I was the black sheep, but today is not the day for Rudy or his people to politicize 9/11. Here’s the text of an email sent out by one of Rudy’s people moments ago:

From: Rob Hewitt
Organization: Rob Hewitt
Reply-To: Rob Hewitt

Subject: September 11 We will not forget

We will not forget.

“This massive attack was intended to break our spirit. It has not done that. It has made us stronger, more determined and more resolved.”

– Rudy Giuliani, Address to the United Nations
October 1, 2001

Call me a cynic, but this smacks of political opportunism. The email came from Rob Hewitt, the same fellow who sends out Rudy news, pro-Rudy polls, and other cheerleading notes from time-to-time. Nothing wrong with that, that’s what surrogates do, but today’s not the day.
