Lets start with Rudy, the candidate who will implode, the only question being when.
Rudy is the guy imitating Karl Rove with the kind of attack fear politics on terror that led Bush to 35 percent popularity and led Republicans in Congress back to minority status.
Rudy, you may remember, was the genius who ignored all advice and put his emergency command center in the World Trade Center that was previously attacked. Another common denominator with Bush: not listening to advice from those who know far more about certain matters than he.
Rudy masterminded the poorly functioning system of communications that proved disastrous on 9-11.
