Blogs hate Jews
July 13, 2006 News & Politics
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.
