A friend of theirs once took Christopher Hitchens and his wife Carol Blue to dinner at Palm Beach's Everglades Club, notorious for its exclusion of Jews. "You will behave, won't you?" Carol anxiously asked Christopher on the way into the club. No dice. When the headwaiter approached, Christopher demanded: "Do you have a kosher menu?"

A True "friend" of Israel?

This is one of those pictures, that when you see it, you slap yourself for being fooled.  A few days ago good ol' Newt was taking heat for making an historically rational comment about the "Palestinians," calling them an invented people. It's been a common theme amongst the GOP candidates, bolstering their Pro-Israel credentials. It's a strategy that has been working, convincing religious Jews that they are good for Israel, while conversely, Obama is their enemy. Newt's comment was the most rational yet and I actually bought it. But then, this picture cropped up and I was reminded who he really is, a calculating, manipulative politician. He plays to the room he's in and to the moment. His only allegiance its to himself. View this picture, and remember it well.
