Comparing NYC and Alabama

I've been to Alabama and I've been to New York City. Rudy Giullani is insane.

Giuliani: Alabama on verge of major growth
MONTGOMERY -- Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani told the Alabama Legislature today that his city and the state of Alabama share “considerable common ground.”


Update:

He did even better.
But when asked about more mundane matters _ like the price of some basic staples _ Giuliani had trouble with a reporter's question.

"A gallon of milk is probably about a $1.50, a loaf of bread about a $1.25, $1.30," he said.

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.

Giuliani was closer to the mark on the price of a gallon of gasoline.

"Gas, I think, is $2.89," he said


He also says he didn't see any confederate flags while he was in Alabama.

UPDATE on the UPDATE

The MSNBC talking heads were excusing his cost estimates by saying that NY has higher prices than the rest of the country and that he might not have been far off for most Americans. They just don't pay attention before they go on the air. You know better, the prices above are from Montgomery Alabama.
