MINNEAPOLIS–Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani used sharp words to attack the Democratic the presidential ticket at a luncheon held by the New York Republican Delegation.

He confused the name of the Illinois Legislature, where Barack Obama served as a state senator, with that of the “Chicago legislature” multiple times, resigning himself at last to calling it the “Chicago machine, that’s it.”

Giuliani mocked Obama’s time as a community organizer. “What do they do?” he said. “I’m trying to figure it out.”

He also chided Biden’s verbosity. “Joe has a great amount of experience talking, and talking and talking.”

After describing Sarah Palin’s experience as mayor of Wasilla, he said something Obama used once to great criticism at a fundraiser: “They’re probably part of that group of people that clings to religion and guns,” he said.”

“They’re part of that group that doesn’t count: small-town America. Oh, gee. I guess you don’t study that at Harvard,” he said.

He left without taking any questions from the press.
