Joe Wurzelbacher is evidently a “neocon.” Check out the supposed “reason” why. There are a lot of people who maintain that “neocon” is, in the hands of some, a way to smear a certain group of people–a group to which I proudly belong. Andrew Sullivan just went a long way towards justifying those concerns. And yes, others have noticed Sullivan’s tendency to engage in this | Read More »
“Hit A Jew Day” At Suburban St. Louis Middle School
“Hit A Jew Day” – Linked story at CBS News Website I’m kind of at a loss here. Yes, I’m Jewish by heritage. Did the whole Bar-Mitzvah thing, married and then divorced through the religion and I certainly believe in a just and almighty God.

They wondered how long it would last if someone went to MyBarackObama.com and posted pro-Hillary Clinton material. (Some anti-Semitic material has been on his site since March…see screen shot that was taken just this morning). At 12:01 | Read More »
Is it Okay to Vote Against a Candidate Because of His Race?
UPDATED and BUMPED: According to the Politico late yesterday, the Democrats have denied a request by Cohen for money to fight off Nikki Tinker. But, the Congressional Black Caucus has given Nikki Tinker $5,000.00 and additional fundraising support from Stephanie Tubbs Jones. The answer to the question is no.

Joe Klein, TIME glossy infotainment magazine columnist, is so enthralled with Barack Obama that it has driven him to anti-Semitic accusation.. In his counterfactual column of yesterday, McCain’s Foreign Policy Frustration, Klein announces: The strategic question here is whether to go for regime change [in Iran] or diplomatic engagement.
