On Tuesday night a Republican presidential debate was held in New Hampshire between Rudy Giuliani, John McCain, and Mitt Romney. During the course of the debate, the moderator, Wolf Blitzer, asked Giuliani about Bishop Thomas Tobin’s criticism of his position on abortion.
Just as Giuliani attempted to answer, lightning struck the building and caused the sound system to go haywire. When the former mayor tried to answer the question a second time, lightning struck the building again accompanied by a loud clap of thunder. When the other two candidates heard the thunder a second time they both slowly and quietly backed away from Giuliani.
Making light of the situation, Giuliani quipped, "Look, for someone who went to parochial schools all his life, this is a very frightening thing that's happening right now."
