…over the White House compromising over the Bush Tax Cuts™

Mika looks like she is going to throw up.  Joe can’t believe it, you’d never know he was a republican, and Jon “I ran Newsweek so well that it sold for less than a Whopper Jr.” Meacham is now re-evaluating Barack Obama.

Well you know Jon as a wise woman once said.

“If you say someone is qualified when they are not you lose credibility!”

But hey who knew that Obama might not be all that he seemed to be.

Well maybe they could change the subject to something like Helen Thomas’ latest rant. Or did that actually happen? I see a memeorandum thread and Michael Totten

She’s right that no American would tolerate white-only roads. Israelis, likewise, would never tolerate roads for Jews only. That’s why such roads don’t exist.

The roads she’s referring to in the West Bank are Israeli, and they’re not just for Jews. Israeli Arabs can drive on them, and so can non-Jewish foreigners, including Arab and Muslim foreigners. Palestinians were once able to drive on them but have not been allowed to do so since the second intifada, when suicide bombers used them to penetrate Tel Aviv and Jerusalem in order to massacre people.

There are also, by the way, Palestinian roads in the West Bank that Israelis can’t use.
