  •  Hello?! Is Matzoh bread? Yes it is. (0+ / 0-)

    Sounds like you talked to the wrong half.

    Is Boxer in trouble? Yes she is.

    Claiming Fiorina made some big faux pas is way wrong. Plus it is clear from the sentence that she specifically referred to all three faiths when making the breaking bread reference...and yes matzoh is bread.

    More to the point this is kind of chickenshit gotcha politics we complain about when we see it on Fox News

    Even more to the point is it is dangerous hubris because Fiorina is dead even with the incumbent Boxer and that is deadly bad news for incumbents due to the dynamics of off year election race especially in an environment in which incumbents are automatically in trouble.

    Touting fake issues like this is more likely to turn off voters and help Fioriana.

      you are making more it it than it is - not me.

      Fiorina made the comments.

      We disagree.

      •  I didn't write front page diary on matzoh. (0+ / 0-)

        So don't think I was making anything of it, just the opposite, I think the diarist tried to make something out of nothing...an unleavened diary perhaps?

        Diary seems to be trying a "lets you and him fight" pretending Fiorina somehow insulted Jews with her break bread comment including matzoh...which is in fact bread.

        My point is that these kind of phony issues based on matzho minutia are likely to have the opposite effect and encourage people to vote for Fiorina vs. Boxer.

        Finorina is winning the race. She has now caught up to Boxer and that is really bad news for an incumbent. If this kind of trivial stuff is perceived as coming from Boxer, it will work against her and she's already in trouble.

      Indies are right to sneer at us when we get snarky about dumb stuff like this.
