If Hillary is cold, Rudy is freezer-burned

I’m no big fan of Hillary Clinton, but the results of this Forbes poll are pretty ridiculous:

Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., remains the presidential candidate percieved as coldest among both Democrats and Republicans—and by a wide margin, according to the October edition of the Forbes ‘08 Tracker poll. But since July, she has managed to trim three points from her frostiness quotient.

Some 25% of voting-age Americans polled in the latest survey named “coldness” as an attribute of Clinton’s, ranking her five times frostier than her principal Democratic opponent, Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, who just 5% of those polled considered cold. He is followed closely by Republican Mike Huckabee, former governor of Arkansas, who 6% labeled as cold.

Neither Forbes.com nor ePoll, the California market research company conducting the polling, defines any of the 46 attributes on which it polls its sample population. These are the same traits it has used to select high-level spokespeople for its own advertising campaigns for more than a decade.


In some cases, candidates who have put substantial effort into polishing their image have gotten results. Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is considered “cold” by 7% of those polled, while Fred Thompson, who spent five years as the gruff but homespun Manhattan district attorney on Law & Order is rated as cold by 8%.

Clinton is nearly 4x “colder” than Giuliani?  Are we talking about the same rude, arrogant and egomaniacal mayor I lived with for eight years?  The same married scumbag who fazed out one mistress to pony up, very publicly, with another one?  The same heartless bastard who let his wife know he wanted a separation during a press conference? The same loathsome douchebag who alienated nearly every black citizen of New York City during his tenure?  The same fuckhead who has been shamelessly dry humping the memories of 9/11 and layering on THE FEAR for personal gain?  That dude is nearly 4x less cold than Hillary?

Wait until America finds out what we New Yorkers know.  I can’t wait.
