Rudy Giuliani Explains Republican Cowardice

After the announcement that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other 9/11 defendants will stand trial in New York, right wing panic set in. Countless Republicans took to the airwaves to let the world know that they don't believe in the capabilities of the American justice system.

John Boehner cowered. Karl Rove quaked. Bill O'Reilly whimpered that he doesn't care about the Constitution.

But none could sum up the right wing cowardice greater than Mr. 9-11 himself, Rudy Giuliani. Take a look.

And don't even get them started on holding terrorist suspects in our prisons. I imagine Republicans are drawing up papers to kick Grover Norquist, Bob Barr and David Keene out of the party as I speak.
