Rudolph Giuliani visited Belgrade today on the invitation of the main opposition party SNS and its candidate for Serbian capital's mayor in the May 6 vote. Giuliani, who ran New York from 1994 to 2001, told reporters that he had come to Belgrade to "give advice on how to improve and develop" the Serbian capital.

Apparently hearing it from a CGI bear didn't soften the blow. Rudy Giuliani and his wife Judith went to see Ted in the Hamptons on Sunday night, and when the bear asks Norah Jones about her nationality and shoots back, "Whatever. Thanks for 9/11," "No one in the theater laughed," a source tells the Post. "The joke fell completely flat." Supposedly the audience "had too much respect for the mayor" to laugh at the disaster — or maybe the Hamptons crowd just doesn't find racist teddy bears funny.
