I don't mean to discount the "Fast and Furious" investigation. I followed what happened in Waco in the '90s and I don't doubt the potential for abuse at the ATF or other federal law enforcement agencies.
But now much of the get-Holder stuff is just because Holder is black? The last big winger target was Van Jones. I seem to remember a few more minor things in the meantime where they went after some women who were white. Okay, and Barney Frank, but he's gay.
It's always about going after black people and, maybe to a lesser extent, women and gays, isn't it?
I'm sure it's all just a huge coincidence.
Catholic League president Bill Donohue, a vocal conservative voice who recently warred with The Daily Show over a "vagina manger," has infuriated prominent Jewish leaders with a private email last week to Philadelphia Rabbi Arthur Waskow. Waskow, a progressive rabbi involved in the Jewish Renewal movement, had criticized the Vatican and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops in a Huffington Post op-ed for "attacking the religious freedom of millions of American women and the religious freedom of American nuns" over contraception. Donohue responded with a note to Waskow that launched an email exchange that ended with a warning, forwarded to BuzzFeed by a source close to the rabbi, that "Jews had better not make enemies of their Catholic friends since they have so few of them." Donohue also includes a postscript saying, "I do not have a long nose."Buzzfeed has all the emails in full.
RELATED: As far as I know, Donohue has yet to publicly comment on the scandal regarding Cardinal Dolan's payoffs to pedophile priests. I've taunted to him to say something on Twitter several times, but he's been uncharacteristically silent.
