Former New York mayor and sometime presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani will address the GOP today and among the topics he’s expected to address (besides his perennial 9/11 remarks) is embattled VP candidate, Sarah Palin. Wonkette had this to say:

“John McCain’s best friend Ron Fournier, the Washington editor of the Associated Press, has written a nice news analysis about, what else, Sexism. He notes that McCain strategist Steve Schmidt’s dismissal of the “faux media scandal designed to destroy the first female Republican nominee for the vice president of the United States Famous” is only the beginning of a terrible two-month strategy to employ the SEX CARD, because what else is there to play?”
