In the clip to your right Keith Olbermann and writer Jonathan Alter from Newsweek discuss the fallout or lack thereof from this action.

"I think the Onion had it right," Alter concluded. "He's running to be president of 9/11. Nobody who's been a mayor, Keith, has ever gone directly from mayor to president. ... His springboard is this tragic event, this horrible attack on this country, and there's something that's just a little bit tasteless about trying to do that."
