Rudy's got an Iowa problem too

Picking up off of Ritchie's post below, check out this article on Rudy's snub of a couple Iowa farmers. The Rude Dog was going to make one of his silly photo-op speeches at a family farm that would be harmed by the estate tax. But when it was discovered that the farm was not, in fact, valued highly enough to be subject to the estate tax, lo and behold Giuliani's people told the farmers that their farm was no longer needed for the speech.

As Media Matters points out in the linked article, the MSM has let this one go without a peep. But they breathlessly followed the saga of John Edwards' haircut. Somehow I think the former is far more telling about a candidate's makeup than the latter.
