Thom Hartmann and Ralph Nader are on the radio having no idea why Dennis Kucinich would advise his Iowa supporters to go with Obama. Both favor Edwards (though Nader doesn’t rule out running on his own). That Nader would favor Edwards is pretty easy to understand, since Edwards is running against the corporate oligarchs; this also is a reason Hartmann gives, and it helps float my boat, as well.

I think we can credit Kucinich’s ‘naive’ side, which is both a weakness and a strength—it was a ‘naive’ young man who went ahead and let Cleveland go into default. John Kerry was once a naive young man, who fought against the Vietnam War, but he lost his naivete, and so lost his strength.

Dress this Torah!

I wouldn’t have almost dropped this Torah at my Bar Mitzvah thingie: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/7158792.stm. But it’s probably an SOB to dress.

Actually it’s the entire Tanach. I’d be a superman of some kind, carrying an entire Tanach (but not the ‘Aryan’ kind of superman).

    Thinking about it further, I think I now understand. You're saying the WSJ is being antisemitic, not the people they're quoting.

    I don't think they'd listen to it coming from us, but a…

    I'm not noticing it either. Seems to me they *are* being assholes to Jews, but only moreso than anybody else if we happen to be in the way. I think that's gneral-purpose assholery, not…
