I learned something important from Rudy Giuliani's inability to name the price of a gallon of milk or a loaf of bread: Reporters ask really silly questions.
Giuliani badly underestimated what you and I are paying at the grocery store. This is supposed to show that the millionaire former mayor of New York City isn't the common man.
Gotcha questions like this one have become a staple of presidential politics and state politics too. In a debate last year, candidates for governor in Texas were asked everything from the year of the Battle of the Alamo to the interest rate for a 30-year mortgage.
But how often do you say to yourself, "That politician is incompetent, corrupt, lazy, stubborn and stupid, but I LOVE the way he can recite what I'm paying for dish soap"?
