Passing strange, but perhaps a sign of which face of libertarianism has the broader appeal these days. ~Ross Douthat

That would be the non-libertarian face of Giuliani.  This pretty much confirms what many of the naysayers of the “libertarian vote” thesis have been saying all along.  My version of this criticism can be put this way: libertarians who actually begin to approach something recognisably like a libertarian view of politics (which might involve some reduction in the size and power of the state) are exceedingly few in number, while those who would like to unite the worst instincts of the parties of greed, sex and death are rather more numerous.
