"Heavyset"? Really? Next time you make an ad hominem attack against a woman, best leave out that particular insult. It could get you killed, possibly by your own female relatives. Feel free to use it when describing Sheldon Adelson, though.

Conservatives in this country have developed an unfortunate habit of comparing everyone they hate with Nazis. In doing so, they dishonor people like the family members you lost by trivializing the Holocaust.

Your comment is an insult to all who suffered at the hands of the real Nazis. And you're a rabbi? Shame on you.

This was an example of an increasingly common phenomenon--Republicans attacking each other as part of a nasty, vicious primary contest. Schweich didn't even have the nomination, and the race to get it was very close. The right-wing "blame everything on Democrats" tactic is especially unconvincing in this case.

Netanyahu openly endorsed Romney in the last presidential election. That was a very stupid move. It was offensive for a foreign leader to try to interfere in a U.S. election. Plus, Romney lost.

Obama once referred to Boehner as a fellow "person of color" but added that the Speaker's color "is not one that occurs in nature."

No, I'm not looking for TV to give me role models. I didn't say that. Why the hysterical reaction to my comment? Chill out, for Pete's sake.

What I found really striking about "Seinfeld" was that I couldn't identify with any of the characters. When I laughed, I laughed at them, not with them. George Costanza was despicable, Kramer was nuts, and Elaine was pretty much an idiot. Jerry Seinfeld was obsessive-compulsive, breaking up with women because they had "man hands" or because he didn't like the way they ate their peas. These people weren't role models, far from it. At the end of the final episode, they end up in jail for the offenses the author of this article enumerates.
