Judi, Judi, Judi

Apparently it annoys Judith Nathan, Rudy Giuliani's social-climbing wife, when people call her Judi. Judi, Judi, Judi. From the article, it sounds like she's just perfect for crazy Rudy.

Vanity Fair: The 2008 Election
Giuliani's Princess Bride

A dramatic transformation has occurred, one she does not care to discuss, despite repeated requests by Vanity Fair. She had always been known as "Judi." "Judi is what she was born. I don't think we called her Judith ever," says her father, Donald Stish, 78, seated on his porch one sultry June day in the shade of a gray metal awning. He is a calm, thick-set man who marvels at his daughter's makeover. After her second divorce, she upgraded herself to "Judith" with such vehemence that, one former Giuliani aide confides, "at City Hall we were prohibited from calling her Judi. She would bawl us out if we did."

For years she appeared, in the public record, to have had only one failed marriage, but as it turned out she'd had two. It seemed that she had gone to Pennsylvania State nursing school, as The New York Times once reported, but she had not. She completed two years of nursing school, but left hospital work before a year was up. Nonetheless, Giuliani has publicly referred to her "expertise" in "biological and chemical" disasters, and believes she would be a help in the event of an anthrax attack.

The fact that Rudy Giuliani is being seriously considered as a Presidential candidate is one of the great mysteries of life.

Wow! This is serious narrowmindedness...and one word very appropriate for such an attitude - immature. There's just no other words. With much sympathy on your immaturely stubborn negative outlook...
