This week in the NJJN:
- The Republican Jewish Coalition’s Matt Brooks on why McCain might be good for the Jews.
- Jewish Dems handicap the Clinton-Obama showdown.
- Minor league umpire cries foul on Christian evangelizing in baseball locker rooms.
- And I wonder how a tendentiously argued anti-Obama piece is mass-emailed by so many Jews who should know better:
I don’t blame what the National Jewish Democratic Council calls a “right-wing attack machine” for the [Ed] Lasky piece. I blame the Jews who accept a clearly ideologically driven essay as the “truth” about Obama, and simply hit “forward” on their e-mail. No doubt some of the folks in the e-mail chain share Lasky’s politics, but I wonder about the credulity of those who don’t. To coin a phrase, would you buy a used argument from this man?
