Hiring Freeze

Is Rudy Giuliani really going with the imagine-you're-hiring-someone-for-a-job metaphor? The look-through-their-resumes gambit? If I'm not mistaken, Giuliani is the dude who touted this guy as Homeland Security chief. Slamming Obama's preparedness is a good idea, but Rudy might want to block that particular metaphor. 

(Also, I somehow don't think this particular line from his spiel was meant as a reference to Monica Goodling, but it'd be nice all the same: "Imagine that you have two job applications in your hand, and the names and the party affiliations have been blocked out." Yes, imagine!)
