Atlanta Journal-Constitution | KEN HERMAN

WASHINGTON — omehow, some folks in the land of y'all have cottoned to a GOP presidential candidate from the land of youse guys.

And ex-New York mayor Rudy Giuliani will make another foray into the symbolic heart of southern culture Sunday as he soaks in the ambiance of the Ford 400 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Finale in Homestead, Fla.

For Giuliani, like an anthropologist currying favor in another culture, it's another day of mingling at a tribal ritual.
