"Some of you may have seen yesterday in Baghdad a picture of a statue of that evil dictator being toppled and dragged through the streets by Iraqis," Pataki said to the cheering crowd.
"Let's melt it down. Let's bring it to New York and let's put it in one of the girders that's going to rise over here as a symbol of the rebuilding of New York and the rebuilding of America."

How many things are wrong with this? Does he realy think that advocating the plundering of Baghdad so as to rebuild NY is really something you should be saying outloud? Do ya think the Iraquis might be able to find some use for that thing? Could he make it any easier to make the phrase "REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR OF NEW YORK" synonymous with the phrase "FUCKING IDIOT"?
