Ahem: cough, cough

As I said, Wednesday, commenting on recent right-wing moves to bash the New York Times....

"'s guaranteed red meat to the right-wingers, who see "liberal bias" in the media, with The Times being ground zero. (And the fact that the paper is owned by a buncha Jews, well that's just a wonderful bonus to rile up the GOP base)."

As Jon Carroll said in The San Francisco Chronicle, Thursday:

"Also, the name of the New York Times contains the word "New York." Many members of the president's base consider "New York" to be a nifty code word for "Jewish." It is very nice for the president to be able to campaign against the Jews without (a) actually saying the word "Jew" and (b) without irritating the Israelis. A number of prominent Zionist groups think the New York Times is insufficiently anti-Palestinian, so they think the New York Times isn't Jewish enough."

Just a little note to some right-wing asshole emailers out there, snarking that I only said what I said because I happen to like Jewish girls: lots of people see through your hate, no matter how you couch your vitriol. Fucktards.
