Richie Rich and Whitey White

Ladies and Gentlemen, your 2008 Republicans!

Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani hasn't done a lot of grocery shopping lately — at least based on his answers about the cost of milk and bread.

[...]

When asked about more mundane matters — like the price of some basic staples — Giuliani had trouble with a reporter's question.

"A gallon of milk is probably about a $1.50, a loaf of bread about a $1.25, $1.30," he said.

A check of the Web site for D'Agostino supermarket on Manhattan's Upper East Side showed a gallon of milk priced at $4.19 and a loaf of white bread at $2.99 to $3.39. In Montgomery, Ala., a gallon of milk goes for about $3.39 and bread is about $2.

Out of touch isn't quite the word--no wonder the Republicans only seem to represent people for whom the cost of food doesn't matter. Then again, Giuliani might be better off than rival John McCain, who has entirely different if equally mistaken perceptions when he goes to market.

Oh, why was Giuliani in Alabama? To attend $1,000-per-person campaign fundraisers in Mobile and Montgomery...and to suck up to racists as well, for he insisted that flying the Confederate flag should be left to each state to decide. Good thing for him there's a nifty Venn diagram where the white folk and the rich folk meet.

Rudy's cents really makes me appreciate Bob Barker for some odd reason.

This is going to get confusing with 2 Amys commenting on INOTBB.

And you're both Libras.
