This is sweet, but also sort of weird: The New York Sun wonders how my predecessor at NJJN, the late David Twersky, would have voted in the election:
Our guess is that Twersky would have — this is purest speculation here — been agitated over the deterioration in relations between President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu. Our guess is that he would have blamed them both, and probably in equal measure. But Mr. Netanyahu isn’t up for re-election until January. The Arab Spring was still over the horizon when Twersky died. He would have been incredibly excited by it, but warning all the time about naivete. He was, when we knew him, driven nearly to distraction by the tendency of the Left to make excuses for the Islamist radicals. He would have understood down to the ground the danger of an Iranian A-bomb.
