Every time one thinks it is impossible for Israel haters to come out with a more bizarre justification for hating Israel, someone comes up with an even more bizarre justification.

Today’s exhibit is City University of New York Professor Sara Schulman, who is feverishly anti-Israeli to the extent of

Last night Newt Gingrich addressed the issue of whether to deport people who are in the country illegally but have deep roots in the community over long periods of time.  The issue of deportation is quite distinct from a so-called “pathway to citizenship.”

The Romney campaign immediately came out of the debate...

Windmills are a centerpiece of Obama’s energy plans for the nation.

We’ve already documented how wind power subsidies take from the windless to give to the winded, and some problems when the wind blows too much.

Here’s another, from Britain, regarding noise pollution:

Don’t take my word for it.  Because if I said Newt, you’d say, well, you support Newt so….

And if I told you that last night Newt put himself in the position of the most presidential on stage, you’d say …...

Wolf Blitzer started the night by confirming that Wolf really was his first name.

In the introductory statements, Mitt Romney confirmed that Mitt was his first name.
