    When Sen. John McCain tapped Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to be his running mate today, the Jewish political blogosphere -- as loud and fast and opinionated as (for lack of a better word) the Gentile Web -- came to a screeching halt.

    After all, you can fight about John McCain, and Barack Obama, and Joe Biden . . .but Sarah Palin?

    It took an Internet eternity for Jewish Republicans to come out swinging for Sarah, an just as long for Jewish Democrats to hit back.

    "Homerun!" Larry Greenfield, the California director of the Republican Jewish Coalition, wrote me via e-mail five hours after McCain's announcement. "Governor Palin has a very close relationship with the Jewish community of Alaska, with Chabad (Rabbi Greenberg) and with AIPAC. She is close to the Frozen Chosen!"

    Seconds later came a blast from Congressman Robert Wexler (D-FL) claiming Palin endorsed Pat Buchanan's presidential run in 2000: "John McCain's decision to select a vice presidential running mate that endorsed Pat Buchanan for President in 2000 is a direct affront to all Jewish Americans."

    Oh, now it's getting good.

    FULL ARTICLE.

    This is no big deal. Support of a candidate does not automatically ensure that one agrees with every position. Perhaps her support of him was based on his pro-life position.

    Whatever, it is still no big deal. Straw grasping, again.

    So, for the record:

    This should make all the anti-Israel Jew-haters shudder.

    Straw grasping again? Anti-Israel Jew-haters? What are you talking about LE? It looks like you're trying to make a point but I must have missed it. Sorry.
