Anybody But David, part 2

Aw, sheeeeeeet.
After a meeting on Long Island on Friday with Rudolph W. Giuliani, the state Republican Party chairman, Joseph N. Mondello, has decided to call it quits, but he will remain chairman of the Nassau County Republican Party, a party official said Monday.

Mr. Mondello’s decision, and Mr. Giuliani’s involvement in it, comes as the latest evidence that the former mayor is seriously considering a run for governor in 2010.
The Democrats better come up with somebody other than the current governor, because I don't want to have to pull a lever for the adulterous cad who ran New York City like a thug.

But if it's a choice between Giuliani and Patterson, I will.
