  •  pogrom in the Senate (none)
    Well, right now the Senate is being flooded with phone calls from irate Christian fundamentalists demanding that Arlen Specter (who is of the Jewish faith) not be given the chair of the Judiciary Committee because he doesn't adhere to proper Christian fundamentalist doctrine.  Effectively, they're saying that only a proper Christian (as defined by them) can occupy that post.  I feel that this has very strong anti-Semitic overtones.
    •  Disturbing.... (none)
      I had heard they had issues w/ Spector because he's for keeping them on a tight leash, but the fact that he's Jewish is being thrown into the argument already is extremely disturbing, IMHO

      (I didn't know Spector was Jewish, BTW......all I knew was that he was a conservative Repub. If they are eating their own so soon, what the hell's gonna happen?)
