"Welcome to the capital of the world"

The text of former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani's speech to the RNC is worth a look if you missed it last night.

Now New York construction workers are very special people. I'm sure this is true all over but I know the ones here the best. They were real heroes along with many others that day, volunteering immediately. And they're big, real big. Their arms are bigger than my legs and their opinions are even bigger than their arms. Now each one of them would engage the president and I imagine like his cabinet give him advice. They were advising him in their own words on exactly what he should do with the terrorists. Of course I can't repeat their exact language.

But one of them really went into great detail and upon conclusion of his remarks President Bush said in a rather loud voice, “I agree.”

A great speech. I say: Rudy + Condi 2008.

Was I the only one bawling during the 9/11 segment? I hate reliving that day but couldn't change the channel. Those 3 women were incredible.

Amen to all of that.
