Rudy is Toast
At least as far as getting any kind of support from the socially conservative Republican Party base is concerned. The logically contradictory answers he gave to the abortion question was brutal.
BTW, what kind of a moron is Chris Matthews for asking Mitt Romney what he would say to Catholic leaders who would deny Communion to those Catholics who support abortion rights? The utter stupidity of the question, which is actually pretty normal for Matthews, was illuminated by Romney's clever response: "I don't have anything to say to them. They can do whatever the heck they want!"
