[UPDATE] Welcome, Instapundit readers. Do I regret? Certainly the specifics, although you can argue that the principle – standing up against bigotry – was sound.
You know, back in the day, I had a certain sympathy for Democrat Steve Cohen (TN-09): back in 2008 he had been targeted for being a Jew by primary challenger Nikki Tinker, with nary a word of objection made by then Senator and now-President Barack Obama, who Cohen enthusiastically supported. It was obvious, even as early as last year, that this theme would probably be revisited in 2010 by former Memphis Mayor Willie Herenton, if a bit more skillfully. At the time, I was disappointed.
My reaction now, given that he likes to call us all Klansmen and Nazis?
You go and have yourself a nice, karma-laden primary there, Rep. Cohen. I hope it’s the political version of a knife fight in an alley. Just Blue-on-Blue, and it’s no skin off of my nose who wins.
PS: (Republican) Charlotte Bergmann for Congress. She doesn’t hate people.
