In an act of political expediency that makes Mitt Romney look like a paragon of consistency, Rudy Giuliani has backed the hated Boston Red Sox in the World Series. New York, home of Giuliani’s beloved Yankees, is aghast.
The former New York City mayor acknowledged at a Boston news conference Tuesday he is rooting for the rival Red Sox to win the World Series.
“I’m not saying that just because I’m here in Massachusetts,” the Republican presidential candidate said to applause and laughs. “If I’m in Colorado in the next week or two, you will see I will have the courage to tell the people of Colorado the same thing.”
