Some time earlier this week, Rudy Guiliani apparently hauled off and kicked one of his Iowa supporters in the nuts.

Not literally of course, but it might have been better if he had. He actually got with a modest Iowa farmer who had donated to his campaign and arranged for the man and his sickly wife to host a campaign rally at his farm. It was all to be very Americana. The New York City moderate with salt of the earth rural farmer supporters.

Instead, Rudy decided that because the farmer was poor, it made a bad setting for him to talk about the Inheritance Tax. He canceled at the last minute, despite the hard work the couple had put into organizing the event, and despite the fact that many of their friends and members of their community had been invited.

So, he got that couple's hopes up, and then dashed them because he found out they were poor. It's such massively bad politics that I just have to laugh at it.
