Over at National Review, Deroy Murdock is eager to assure his fellow right-wingers that Rudolph Giuliani is no liberal!

What’s his evidence? Why, when he was mayor Giuliani doused the city with toxic insecticide! He built dirty power plants in poor parts of town! He privatized the management of Central Park!

No liberal would ever do that stuff, right?

Meanwhile, current NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg just unveiled a visionary plan to make NYC the “the first environmentally sustainable 21st-century city,” with traffic congestion charges, transit improvements, more public spaces, lots of new trees, and more. Guess that sinks his hopes of getting the Republican presidential nomination.

Grist thanks its sponsors. Become one.
