Siccing Judy

Last week, when Rudy Giuliani’s comments about allowing his wife into cabinet meetings first surfaced, I made the point that it was a huge blunder, because by making such a statement, he declared open season on her (his subsequent damage control won’t change this).

Today the NY Post‘s front page headline reads: “JUDI’S DOG DAYS,” and the story that follows details:

Judith Giuliani once demonstrated surgical products for a controversial medical-supply company that used dogs – which were later killed – in operations whose only purpose was to sell equipment to doctors, The Post has learned.

“It was a horribly cruel, outrageous program,” Friends of Animals President Priscilla Feral said about the demonstrations of medical staplers on dogs conducted by U.S. Surgical Corp. employees during Giuliani’s tenure there in the late 1970s.

It may have been 30 years ago, and it may have nothing to do with what type of president Giuliani would be, or even what kind of first lady his wife would make, but it is only a sign of things to come. It may not be fair, but the media siccing of Judith Giuliani has begun.
