The story thus far: Sheldon Adelson is a billionaire who is supporting Mitt Romney in this election, which is why the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) recently accused him of being a pimp for the Chinese mob. Mr. Adelson is also a Jewish billionaire supporting Romney, which is why the National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC) followed suit. Mr. Adelson – who, by the way, spends a good deal of time fighting the after-effects of human trafficking – responded by (as I put it last week) casting Summon Elite Lawyer Ninja Squad, and the DCCC promptly caved. Apparently the NJDC did not, which is why Mr. Adelson is now suing them for $60 million.
I note all of this because today’s Breitbart interview with prominent Democrat Alan Dershowitz is fascinating in its subtext – actually, it’s fascinating in its text, too:
“David Harris and the National Jewish Democratic Council are a bunch of liars. I, Alan Dershowitz, a Democrat, am calling for David Harris to step down in the interests of the Democratic Party. He’s going to turn Jewish voters away from the Democratic Party. They’re going to vote for the Republicans because of what David Harris and the National Jewish Democratic Council are doing.”
One wonders whether Mr. Dershowitz is speaking entirely in the third person, there. And whether the likely Online Left’s reaction to Dershowitz’s apostasy will do anything to accelerate the development of said apostasy…
