Josh Marshall is my hero

Josh Marshall's Talking Points Memo is one of the best of the investigative reporting (as opposed to analysis and commentary) blogs. He's carefully developed a staff and infrastructure that let him not only acquire data early but analyze it--not only comment upon stories but also develop and track them. Along with LowerManhattanite, Josh has made Hizzoner a principal (and deserving) target. Like those folks, I lived in Rudy Giuliani's New York and I know how much of a fascist crook he is, and I know that, beyond his hateful personality, he's also a real menace in a position of power--so I won't be sorry to see him fall.

And today's analysis of Rudy's tanking numbers nails it:

When Rudy Giuliani's soft lead in the national polls evaporates, suddenly he'll be just another GOP hopeful lining up to get his head sliced off in the first big primary and caucus contests.
Couldn't happen to a more deserving fascist.

Tancredo falls today as well. They've both been apostles of hatred (Tancredo of Brown People, Rudy of Anybody Who Argues) and they deserve whatever bad shit happens to them.
