Once upon a time, there lived a mildly entertaining New York political suit. He did reoccurring cameo bits on “Law And Order” during its prime years. Not exactly a Lennie Briscoe, but his “Rudy” character” had legs.
The character has apparently grown. It is bigger now, bigger than when Rudy was El Promo Cheerleader for the World Champion Yankees. That was a feel good time for everyone. The Yankees — even long time dissenters agree — had done the US of A proud. No one milked the good vibes better than Rudy Giuliani. It was deals, deals and more deals. There was a splendiferous open-shot to Rudy being honored as “America’s Mayor” based on his visuals, many of the visuals taken during 9/11.
Fast forward to November 2020. In the background, we hear calliope music, up to medium. Music should be just loud enough so we can also hear Rudy’s meaningless gobbledygook and with fascination, watch his hair dye melt down his face. Rudi’s bite should have crickets and crackling sounds thoughout its run.
Wrap it up now. A bow from all the clowns. dwarves, pooping elephants, wild horses, bearded ladies, and perfumed lads. The fire-eating lady and the young woman in distress (Zsa Zsa?) caught in a frenzied closing act in all three rings. Rudi G. is becoming more irritated and irritable as he spies out hogwash (Chyrons read Rudy Gugliani, Presidential Legal (CC: Advisor is unintelligible). It ends on a tight shot with Rudy Giuliani screaming gibberish as his calliope music pumps on, all neatly mixed as the sound fades and the visual fades to black.
Good night and good luck, Rudi.
