Jews and Neocons
This is a first here at musclehead, a link to a National Review Online article. I surf over to NRO once in a while to see what the "other" side has to say. Jonah Goldberg has an excellent piece today about the current wave of anti-Semitism in American politics- ranging from liberals like Congressman Moran to conservatives like Pat Buchanan. You can read the full story here, but for the time pressed here is the money graf--
Moran, Buchanan, Matthews, Novak — and more leftists than I can count — should be ashamed. They've lost an argument. They lost it on the merits and they don't like it. In their arrogance or bitterness, they assume they couldn't have lost the fight fairly, and so they look for whispering neocons and clever Jews (or, in other contexts, nefarious oil traders). This is an ugly, ugly way to argue because it forces the opposition to prove a negative and it questions the patriotism of people who've never said an unpatriotic thing. In short, they are sore losers, and the farthest thing from beautiful.
