Please take five minutes to read this twitter exchange.

I don't think I would have had the patience this woman has.

So, I was listening to an agent this morning who was discussing where our ads run (If you want any cable, you have seen one). The customer says, "Why don't you advertise on Rush?" The agent who is Nova Scotia, just let that one die. In my thought bubble, though was this, "Um because he's a hateful, racist, sexist ass knob who's dwindling audience isn't the demographic who need small business websites?"

So I am pretty pissed at the stunt Boehner is pulling.
But even with that context, experts on American-Israeli relations expressed shock that Boehner had invited Netanyahu to address Congress on Iran next month. One described it as an effort to "humiliate" and "embarrass" Obama as the two sides dig in over Iran. The invitation from the Ohio Republican positions Congress, rather than the White House, as Israel's ally.

"It's unprecedented. It's hitting below the belt. It's taking partisanship to a whole new level," Guy Ziv, a professor at American University who has studied U.S.-Israeli relations, told TPM. "It is a way for them to embarrass and humiliate the Obama administration."

Mornin' all..

I want Obama to go to Congress when Bibi shows up, and I want him to bring cameras and reporters with him. And I want him to scowl at that murderous bastard.

I nearly had a stoke pulling into the lot at work when I heard the story on the NPR mosheen.

I swear I'm surprised Repubs haven't started work on making Israel the 51st state.

Any other country in the world occupies, invades, or otherwise acts like an imperial power, and we react with outrage. So how come Israel gets a pass?

Not sure how comfortable I am about that.

With all due respect, as many as 1.5 million Roma (Gypsies) were put to death during the Holocaust, yet there was never a movement to establish a homeland for them, and in much of Europe they continue to be a much-persecuted and maligned minority. While I am glad that the Jewish people have been able to recover from the horrors of the Shoah, it is important to acknowledge that the death camps were not a "Jews only" club.

Sorry, sorry. Didn't mean to provoke anyone...it just always irks me that we seem to have a different set of rules for Israel. I suppose that's me being cynical.

While all this is true, I don't think it has anything to do with why Republicans are so batshit in love with Israel.

That's the fault of the evangelical Christians in this country, not yours. They're the ones who really believe in that Armageddon bullshit prophecy.

It's because it gives us a convenient excuse to go anywhere in the region with our military forces, blow shit up, overthrow governments, and put friendly dictators in who will cut us in on the oil profits.

Not to mention all the Fundies who believe that a Greater Israel needs to exist in order to fulfill end-time prophecies.

So, if every QB in the league has pretty much said "yeah, we mess with footballs all the time", is it still a scandal because the Patriots did it ?
