Giuliani: A description of my mistakes in thirty seconds?!

Stewart: Here's a hint: It starts with annulling my first marriage to my second cousin, and it ends with my kids from my second marriage supporting Barack Obama because they hate my third wife. Ba Boom!

Although I am not a fan of dragging personal family matters into a political campaign, the right-wing has made a sport of it over the past 20 years with the rise of Dobson, Robertson and so-called "value voters". For a base that supposedly puts a premium on "family values" and "traditional marriage," Giuliani's checkered marital past and rocky relationship with his children is certainly worthy of public scrutiny.
