Ecumenical dislike

Posted By on Sat, Aug 21, 2010 at 7:05 AM

NY Times columnist Charles Blow writes about a growing movement of Jewish voters toward the Republican Party, encouraged by President Obama's hard line toward Israel and outreach to Muslims. (And you do know, of course, because Billy Graham's son said it's so, that Obama is the seed of a Muslim himself, so ....)

It's not just Jews. If you go to the link, you'll see handy charts showing rising numbers for Republicans and falling numbers for Democrats in every religious subgroup. Sort of like, as I observed yesterday, the apparent rise of affection for Republicans in Arkansas. Brummett is on Arkansas's Republicanization today.

    Donald Trump gave a remarkable interview to the New York Times yesterday in which he declared open season on the marriage of Bill and Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton's past infidelity. Seems like a loser, but I've been wrong before.
