Edwards: Greatest Threat to World Peace is Israel
Variety is reporting that John Edwards has gone off the deep-end, apparently afflicted with a case of the feverish disease called Moonbatia Anti-Semitica:
|Hollywood is of one mind politically -- at least, that's the long-standing myth... there are many other cross-currents as well -- and they are strengthening as the '08 campaign looms.|
One obvious area of disagreement, of course, involves personalities. Barack Obama's cameo appearances in town have created a fervent constituency, and Hollywood likes instant stars. Still, the Hillary backers have power and money and are diligently trying to disconnect her from the debacle in Iraq.
There are other emerging fissures, as well. The aggressively photogenic John Edwards was cruising along, detailing his litany of liberal causes last week until, during question time, he invoked the "I" word -- Israel. Perhaps the greatest short-term threat to world peace, Edwards remarked, was the possibility that Israel would bomb Iran's nuclear facilities. As a chill descended on the gathering, the Edwards event was brought to a polite close...
...The Middle East crisis represents just one of the issues that could splinter the formidable anti-Bush sentiment in the entertainment community.
Outrageous? Don't be surprised, it's just more folderol from the party of Jimmy Carter.

Update: Edwards has had a change of heart. Israel is not the greatest threat to world peace!
