Giuliani Hires Big Romney Fish? August 23, 2007Posted by fitsnews in 2008 Presidential Primaries.
HIZZONER LANDS CATCH FROM ROMNEY’S S.C. POLITICAL MACHINE?
FITSNews – August 23, 2007 – This is one of those political insider stories we could really give a rat’s rear end about except for the fact that it seems to make absolutely no sense. The news that Hizzoner Rudy Giuliani has hired Palmetto politico Heath Thompson is honestly about as exciting as the news that somebody kicked over an ant mound in our front yard, of course the last time we checked Thomson was the second “T” in TTS Political, the South Carolina managers of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney‘s campaign.
So what gives? And more importantly, why the hell do we even care? Giuliani could have picked somebody out of a lineup at the Deaf & Blind school to run his campaign’s S.C. communications effort and they’d probably have a bigger impact than Thomson.
Our bet is Thomson’s job description with Team Hizzoner will probably be remarkably similar to what’s he done throughout his career, which is basically to sit very still and say “yes sir” or “yes ma’am” a lot, skills we understand he has honed to a science. If he’s lucky, they might even let him brew some coffee. Of course Thomson’s role at TTS was always a notch above that of current Romney campaign manager Terry Sullivan, whose responsibilities consist of crying a lot and telling people how important he is.
