I crown thee King of the Understatement

Rudy G., who may very well be able to fellate himself soon (at least politically speaking), had this to say about himself:
"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, had this to say in response:
"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."
Shorter version: no you are not. Delightfully understated, I say.
