CNN reports that former New York City Police Chief, Bernard Kerik, has been indicted by a federal grand jury. Details of the charges against him are not expected to be available until the indictment is unsealed on Friday.
Prosecutors had been investigating Kerik for bribery and tax evasion. He admitted to misdemeanor charges of financial impropriety one year ago.
President Bush nominated Kerik to head the Department of Homeland Security in 2004. Kerik withdrew his name from consideration after allegations that he hired a nanny with questionable immigration status surfaced.
Kerik is a longtime friend and protege of Republican presidential candidate and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani. Frenemy Giuliani has called his previous support of Kerik "a mistake."
In an interview with Newsweek, Richard Land, a leading evangelical who serves as president of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, said that evangelicals will support a third party candidate if Rudy Giuliani is the Republican presidential nominee. After putting George W. Bush in office twice, the Christian right refuses to support any candidate whose anticipated policies could diminish their power and influence in the Republican Party. Land had this to say about the matter, "... I have been in too many discussions over the last 15 years where evangelical leaders have said, 'The one thing we will never allow to happen is for the Republican Party to take us for granted the way the Democratic Party too often takes the African-American community for granted.'"
Barack. Butt nekked.
Fred Thompson. Red nekked.
Rudy. Not Nekked?! [Utter shock followed by a long, pensive pause.] Uh, okay.... Rudy. Wearing a hell of a lot more clothes than he usually does.
Here's the cover of Radar Magazine's new politics issue:
Yeah, we saw the Republican debate last night. First we watched Romney and Giuliani have a few catfights, and then we watched
paint dry Fred Thompson say a few words.
MSNBC's Maria Bartiromo (go girl!) and Chris Matthews moderated.

From today's Hotline:
"The choice was pretty easy for me, obviously. Not like Giuliani's daughter."

A party will be held soon in Palo Alto, CA to raise $10,000 in campaign donations for Republican presidential candidate and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani. According to the party invitation, the party theme is "$9.11 for Rudy," and party goers are asked to contribute $9.11 each "to show how many individual, everyday Americans support `America's Mayor.'"
We know what you're thinking: "This sounds like the tackiest, most self-serving and insensitive exploitation of those who lost their lives in the 911 terrorist attacks. No one, not even Rudy 'let's flaunt my mistress in front of the kids' Guiliani would be this insensitive, this stupid. Is this some kind of sick joke?!"
Nope. No joke. You can't make stuff like this up.
