Rudy Seeking Sooner Money in September

New York Senator Hillary Clinton recently raised a tidy sum of campaign cash in Tulsa, so it's hardly a surprise that former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani will be in Oklahoma next month looking for his own pile of Sooner cash.

But before Rudy's donors whip out their checkbooks, we recommend that they read the highly informative and extensively researched article in the August 20 issue of The New Yorker. It's fascinating stuff.

The story, by Peter J. Boyer, will remind Oklahoma Republican voters that Rudy is:

--Thrice married

Former Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan, the New Yorker recalls, described Giuliani's performance at the first Republican debate as "embarrassing" and "bush-league." Former NYC Councilman Stephen DiBrienza, has described the former mayor as "petty and vindictive."

There's more—and not all of it is negative. But there's more than enough on the public record about Giuliani's personal and political life to give many, if not most, Oklahoma Republicans the willies.
