At one level, the North Dakota delegate selection today was not a big deal, because the delegates are “unbound” even on the first convention ballot.

She frequently makes reference to how she was carved up and butchered by Palestinians, but harbors no hatred of Palestinians. Israelly Cool has extensive archives on Kay Wilson. I never really knew her story, though. But…

On Thursday, a Muslim woman reported to police that a stranger who shouted “terrorist” at her slashed her face with a knife.  Apparently, after having been so “attacked,” the woman then called 911, only to later admit that she was not attacked and that her wound was self-inflicted.
