Idiotic grocery price ambush time

One of the more irritating tactics of gotcha journalism is asking a politician the price of common grocery items. Today's victim is Giuliani.

The idea is that politicians prove how out of touch they are by failing to answer these silly questions.

I buy milk practically every week but I have no more idea what the price of a gallon of milk is than Giuliani. I am still going to buy whether the price is $1.50 or $2.75. I shop at Costco for these things precisely because I don't want to have to go to the bother of remembering what a good price is.
