    ...was unfortunate because it prompted a commenter to baselessly insult me.  

    To suggest as I did that Mitt Romney repeated, regurgitated, repurposed, appropriated or otherwise adopted Benjamin Netanyahu's words - that is, to act like a hand-puppet - is backed by the record.  To say that Romney acted as Netanyahu's mouthpiece, megaphone, etc. simply reflects the well-documented history.

    For the earlier commenter to lob a charge of white supremacy, anti-semitism or worse is uncalled for and not remotely supported by anything in the text.
