Rudy takes his 9/11 back-slapping a little too far...

...and it's pissing people off.

Speaking to reporters in Cincinnati, Giuliani said: "I was at ground zero as often, if not more, than most of the workers. ... I was there working with them. I was exposed to exactly the same things they were exposed to. So in that sense, I'm one of them."

Michael Palladino, head of the Detectives Endowment Association, the union of NYPD detectives, told the Associated Press that the mayor's record can't compare to those who spent 12 months sifting through toxic debris for evidence and human remains.

"As a result of their hard work, many are sick and injured. The mayor, although he did a fine job with 9/11, I don't think he rises to the level of being an equal with those men and women who were involved in the rescue, recovery and cleanup," Palladino said.
To learn a little more about what many of 9/11's true heroes think of Rudy, check out this eye-opener from the International Association of Fire Fighters.

Oh, and don't forget this quote that was initially made about George W. Bush, but can easily be applied to the self-anointed Saint Rudy...

UPDATE: Here's the video. What a smug asswipe...
