Would-Be President Giuliani to Host AMC's 'Mob Week'

AMC is running a series of classic gangster flicks next week, and the former federal prosecutor and New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani will introduce them on air.

"While Giuliani would be right to dismiss any criticisms of his setting up a showing of The Godfather, Goodfellas or Donnie Brasco as silly, it is also not exactly what we expect from a presidential candidate," writes Commentary Magazine.

"Candidates have been damaged for allowing themselves to be associated with less controversial things than the violence, sex and drug use shown in these movies. And to do so just as the GOP presidential race is starting to heat up, strikes me as the type of decision a man who was actually planning on running for president wouldn’t make.

"So despite the buzz from Giuliani’s camp about his recent appearances in New Hampshire, put down his appearance on AMC’s 'Mob Week' as one more indication the mayor is not going to be a candidate."
