Difficult to tell who is more desperate, Rudy or Jon

Jon Voight, raised as a Roman Catholic, who played the role of Pope John Paul II in a recent CBS mini-series, father of Angelina Jolie, and whose brother wrote "Wild Thing" which propelled the Troggs (?) into stardom, is supporting a guy called Guiliani in Florida for the Republican nomination ...and sent this letter to Florida voters ...

"Israel is in worse danger than ever. Israel's enemies are many, and speak arrogantly and blatantly about how they want to destroy all Jews and Israel. Let us not forget the Holocaust. We will need a strong president, one who will be
committed to the safety and survival of Israel; one who can stand up to the terrorists and extremists.

Rudy Giuliani will not be bullied. Every Jew should be voting for Giuliani. He understands the importance of Israel to America, as well as it's importance to the rest of the world. Rudy Giuliani grew up in New York City, which has the largest Jewish population outside of Israel. There is no other candidate running who has closer ties and understands, respects, and loves the Jewish people as does Rudy Giuliani. He is a man of his word, and his promise to protect Israel is sacred".

Still hustlin' like Joe Buck in Midnight Cowboy .

UPDATE : BBC4 "Today" (30th) had a brief interview with Voight today who expressed his disappointment at Rudy's withdrawal.

This wouldn't be a case of Lord P. applying his legendary subtlety would it?
