ANN ALTHOUSE ON POST-DEBATE SPIN: “What’s really going on here? Looks like people really want to destroy Giuliani.”

A lot of social-cons are piling on Rudy, seeing this as a chance to take him out. That seems unwise for the GOP generally, given that in the latest Quinnipiac poll Giuliani beats Clinton and Obama handily. In fact, he does much better than Fred Thompson or John McCain. And winning elections does matter, as Republicans should realize by this point.
