The Gateway (The Great Panderschlep Edition)
Most of the focus concerning these photos of the “Great Panderschlep” has been on David Storobin him and his machine gun (I think he's pretending he's got the Sheepshead Bay Mosque in his sights, or maybe some Bosnians) and Storobin's Chief of Staff does look about one slip of the finger from starting an international incident, but really, nothing here beats the shot of what looks like pagan Dan Halloran taking a leak on the Western Wall (is he thinking "Me Chinese, me make joke?”).
I am also awaiting a coherent explanation by Storobin explaining why it is unforgivable for his opponent to have supported Obama four years ago, but perfectly OK for his bunkmate to have backed Ron Paul this year.
Ben Akselerod opposes hate against some and favors it against others.
If you want to understand the importance of a community voting, one need only compare Hasidim to Jehovah's Witnesses. The public regards both as eccentric, but one forbids voting while the other turns out in force and votes with near unanimity.

Introducing "Sad Paul Ryan":
One underrated aspect of the new GOP veep nominee’s political arsenal is a recurring persona of his that you might call Sad Paul Ryan. Sad Paul Ryan is less an ideological crusader and more like a wide-eyed boy who has come to Washington full of hope only to have his youthful dreams crushed by nastiness and name-calling. How Ryan’s high-minded belief in the purity of political debate managed to survive his rise to power as a Washington staffer, I cannot say. So emotionally vulnerable is Sad Paul Ryan that even a statistical recitation of the effects of his plan will nearly reduce him to tears. He is capable of complaining that Obama will “affix views to your opponent that they do not have so you can demonize them” — two sentences after accusing Obama of advocating “socialized medicine.”
My piece on the spite endorsement by Nydia Velazquez of the decidedly unprogressive Mark Gjonaj has already gotten me some agitated email, so let me be clear: this was really about Nydia or Gjonaj--really
