Wonkette: Kiss Israel’s Ass Or Lose the Nomination
Wonkette’s comment on John Edwards’ statement that the greatest threat to world peace is the possibility Israel will attack Iran: John Edwards Expresses Concern Over Israel-Iran War, Loses Nomination.
What happened? According to Bart, Edwards was asked to name the greatest threat to world peace at the moment. Instead of the simple answer, wars, Edwards had to be a smarty jones and say the increasing likelihood of an Israeli attack on Iran was the primary current threat. You know, because then Washington would start bombing somebody, and Syria/Lebanon would get involved, and Russia would start threatening everybody, and it would be a nuclear war, etc.
But stating anything so obvious requires taking your lips off Israel’s ass for a few seconds, and that’s fatal for any American politician with presidential ambitions. This isn’t because Jews get upset or Israel’s feelings will get hurt or anything. It’s because of bat—— insane evangelical American Jesus Freaks who have to love and protect Israel so Jesus will come back and destroy it.
