giuliani mum about alien invasion plans

EXETER, N.H. --Presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani on Sunday said
preparedness will be key for all crises,
even an attack from outer space.
During a town hall meeting in Exeter, a young questioner asked
the former New York mayor about his plan to protect Earth.
"If (there's) something living on another planet
and it's bad and it comes over here,
what would you do?" the boy asked.
Giuliani, a nervous grin on his face, said
it was the first time he's been asked about an intergalactic attack.
"Well, what about them?" he asked,
a worried look creeping over his young face.
"Of all the things that can happen in this world,
we'll be prepared for that, yes we will.
We'll be prepared for anything that happens," said Giuliani,
who spent the day campaigning in key early voting state.
Being prepared is a theme that runs through the campaign of Giuliani,
the mayor during the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in New York.
The boy's question risked exposing a major flaw in Giuliani's
claim to be
the candidate best prepared to defend america against alien attack.
The question came as Giuliani wrapped up an address
on emergency preparedness.
"This could be the new Steven Spielberg," he nervously ad-libbed,
his lisp more prominent, quickly trying to change subjects.
"You want to be a science fiction writer or a scientist?"
The boy replied he wants to be a sculptor,
"But what about the aliens?" he persisted.
Then a nervous Giuliani scanned the audience for another question:
"Shall we take one question about this planet?"
