Hate Spreads to Politics Section

Thanks to reader "Empress Trudy" who spotted a very clearly engineered article about Sheldon Adelson giving money to Newt Gingrich. Here's the very first paragraph:
"ATLANTA -- He's an ardent supporter of Israel. A megabillionaire casino mogul whose Las Vegas Sands Corp. is under federal investigation. And the self-proclaimed "richest Jew in the world.""
Naturally this spawned the usual hate parade while the moderators were occupied elsewhere (I assume). Most of the comments were complaining about Newt/Republicans/campaign financing, but others had the reaction the editors wanted.

Wow! Millions of Americans aren't loyal? Not even Joe McCarthy went that far. Still, it's nice to see that at least some of them aren't Jewish. And here's an interesting conversation to finish it off.

I'm sure by now there is plenty more.
