I haven't commented much on all of the fine candidates running for the Republican nomination for the 2008 presidential race. I see today the that former mayor of NYC has gone into the hospital with "flu-like" symptoms. I have to say that you all laughed at Granpa Fredd's somnolent performance up to now as a Republican candidate, but it is now clear that he is wisely pacing himself, something Mr. Guiliani ought to do as well. Perhaps he can delegate some tasks down to underlings, you know, like he did when he was mayor and he had his security detail walking his mistresses dog. It's that kind of leadership that we need in the post-Bush era.
