“Get Back to Us”

“GET BACK TO US”….Via James Joyner, the Political Insider passes along this tidbit:

Word on Wall Street is that New York fundraisers for Rudy Giuliani are calling senior executives with histories of supporting Republican candidates with demands along these lines: “We need five people from your firm to raise $100,000 for Rudy. Get back to us.”

The caller then hangs up, satisfied the instructions were clear and will be followed.

Sounds like our Rudy! As even National Review admits, he’s going to have a tough time on the campaign trail because “there is so much evidence in the public record that he is a total jerk.” No fooling.

UPDATE: More Rudy here. And here! At this rate, I give him a couple of months before he implodes completely.
