Blogs hate Jews
July 13, 2006
Jason Horowitz intimates that darker motives are quickening opposition to Joe Lieberman's senate reelection bid in Connecticut, namely that, blogs hate Jews. Horowitz contacted Ezra Klein for a quote:
Ã¢â‚¬Å“There is a suspicion that the blogs are not challenging Lieberman for the reasons they say they are,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Ezra Klein, a writing fellow at The American Prospect who has been critical of Mr. Lieberman. Ã¢â‚¬Å“That it is indicative of some larger and more pernicious influence. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a little bit harder to say that these are a bunch of liberals who have gotten organized and donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t like Joe Lieberman.Ã¢â‚¬Â [NYO]Too bad Horowitz chopped off half the quote, the part where Ezra said that fatuous accusations of anti-semitism were part of the Lieberman camp's self-serving narrative of victimhood.
