Before Sarah Palin decided to run for the Wasilla mayor’s office in 1996 against incumbent John Stein, the Palins and Steins were friends. John Stein had helped launch Palin’s political career, mentoring the hockey mom during her 1994 run for City Council, along with veteran council member Nick Carney. Stein’s wife, Karen Marie, went to aerobics classes with Palin.But when she announced her candidacy for Stein’s seat, vowing to overturn the city’s “old boy” establishment, a different Sarah Palin emerged. “Things got very ugly,” recalled Naomi Tigner, a friend of the Steins. “Sarah became very mean-spirited.”
…Even though Palin knew that Stein is a Protestant Christian, from a Pennsylvania Dutch background, her campaign began circulating the word that she would be “Wasilla’s first Christian mayor.” Some of Stein’s supporters interpreted this as an attempt to portray Stein as Jewish in the heavily evangelical community. Stein himself, an eminently reasonable and reflective man, thinks “they were redefining Christianity to mean born-agains.”
Oh no they weren’t John Stein. They were insinuating that you were Jewish and that that was a bad, bad thing. You weren’t a Christian like them.
Fast forward to Palin’s visit to Israel.I hope neither one of them had halitosis.
All of a sudden, Palin is embracing her Jewishness. But it was ok to use it as a slur when she wanted John Stein out of the picture.
You see, I got the mistaken impression that the GOP loved Israel. Having witnessed the longest blow job given to a Jewish man in quite a while when the Yahoo gave his war-mongering speech in Congress, this little item perplexes me.
Fitz, an assistant to former U.S. Sen. John Danforth (R-MO), detailed in a written statement the shocking sequence of events from that morning, which was reported by the Associated Press on Thursday.
The account details just how troubled Schweich was by rumors he believed were being spread about his religion on the day he took his own life. Schweich had been telling people that he believed Missouri Republican Party Chairman John Hancock had been engaging in an anti-Semitic whisper campaign, allegedly telling people Schweich was Jewish to damage his candidacy among Christian voters. In the aftermath of the suicide, Hancock has faced mounting calls for his resignation over the allegations.
Now just why is it that the GOP are jumping up and giving Bibi a standing ovation, but yet they try to ruin their own GOP opposition by insinuating they are Jewish?
You have gotta love their retarded logic.
