Rudy Giuliani: Out of Touch?

From Political Wire:

When former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani was asked to give the price of a gallon of milk and a loaf of bread while campaigning in Alabama, he answered, "a gallon of milk is probably about a $1.50, a loaf of bread about a $1.25, $1.30," reports the AP.

However, "a check of the Web site for D'Agostino supermarket on Manhattan's Upper East Side showed a gallon of milk priced at $4.19 and a loaf of white bread at $2.99 to $3.39. In Montgomery, Ala., a gallon of milk goes for about $3.39 and bread is about $2."

While I like Rudy for his frankness and general :gasp: honesty, it's little things like this that make me wonder how in touch he (or any other candidate, for that matter) is with the general public. And yet he and Hillarious hold staggering leads in their respective primaries.

:scratches head: What makes the American public go for dopes like these?

I wonder... does this alternate universe have gasoline priced less than $1.29/gallon? You know, the world as it was in 2000.

Just wondering.
