Former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani, a Catholic, was just answering a question about his support for abortion rights, and the harsh criticism that position has drawn from a Rhode Island bishop. Then lightning struck right as he began, cutting off his mike. Moderator Wolf Blitzer of CNN reassured the candidates that it was merely lightning, but those next to Giuliani on stage moved away from him anyway.
"As someone who went to parochial schools all his life, this is a very frightening thing," Giuliani joked, before reiterating his position that he believes abortion is wrong but that the government shouldn't impose that view on women.
The lightning continues, but so far Rudy is still standing.
Laughing or not, you will notice that John McCain physically distanced himself
from that mincing prancing crossdressing Giuliani, and even Giuliani made a statement
indicating he was aware folks were backing away from him, both literally and metaphorically.
