Something tangentially related to New Hampshire!

Tying in with a post from yesterday and my rant du jour of the day, here's Rudy Giuliani de-linking a loaded term from its grave, historical significance.

"[Hillary's "emotional moment"] is not something I would judge anybody on one way or the other. And the reality is, if you look at me -- Sept. 11, the funerals, the memorial services, there were times in which it was just impossible not to feel ... the emotion."

(Video at the link. And early reports indicate that primary voting in a certain New England state is, like Iowa, very high. Always a good thing.)
