Y'know, sometimes I really wonder how Jews- Jews committed to Judaism, that is- and who are all gaga over Democrats and their ilk (and yes, here I'm thinking of Mr. Moore) can seriously- well, I won't say "live with themselves," but perhaps "intellectually justify themselves." When I first started voting, I decided to look at things this way: Who else is pulling that lever? Who else is voting for Bill Clinton? Al Sharpton? Well, my finger will not touch the same lever as him. Let's just say that in over ten years of voting, I've never voted for a Democrat.

So: Who's voting for John Kerry? Read this, and ask yourself how you can. Honestly? I've read plenty of disgusting things, but this, in light of how Mr. Moore has been lionized, is truly sickening. A full page ad in the Times today for this very book says, "Think the movie is controversial? Wait 'til you read the book." They mean the book here.

Yes, I feel there's much more to an election than Israel, and too many Jews have blinkered views on who to vote for. But statements like these betray a mindset that goes far beyond one issue. And they can't be ignored.

What line did I cross?

what exactly is the connection between Moore and Kerry, besides that they both seem to be members of the same party? any proof that Kerry supports Moore's idiotic views on Israel?

The Democratic establishment has embraced Moore; the onus is on their candidate to affirmatively disassociate.
