Jamie Kirchick writes on the refusal of a New York Times-owned radio station to air a paid advertisement condemning the rocket attacks against Israeli civilians in Sderot:
The station’s manager, apparently attempting to imitate his contemporaries at NPR, wrote to Harris informing him that WQXR would not air the advertisement because it might be construed as â€œmisleading, at least to the degree that reasonable people might be troubled by the absence of any acknowledgement of reciprocal Israeli military actions.” So it’s “misleading” to condemn terrorist attacks on innocent people unless one simultaneously acknowledges — and thus equates — Israeli self-defense? “Reasonable people” are not “troubled” by the “absence” of this comparison. Moral idiots are.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
