Rudy makes his Walk to Canossa

So the big news around these parts was the Bernard Kerik nannygate (and more!) (ToTC) but I got my weekly dosage of schadenfreude after Rudy G made his (figurative) barefoot walk in the snow (NY Times) to the White Houser Christmas dinner to apologize for indirectly endorsing Keri's nomination.

It's clear Rudy and Dubya don't see eye to eye politically, and it has always been a friendship of convenience. It's been painful watching Rudy go on a tonguebathing tour of the Republican America, especially as his politics are more in line with the Democrats nationally.

The Kerik nomination was a transparent attempt by the administration to exploit Giuliani's post-9/11 popularity and it was a chance for Giuliani to strengthen his ties with the White House. So to watch the nomination fall through and Rudy having to apologize for a mistake he didn't make is doubly satisfying.
