Do members of the media have no shame?

How stupid. What business is it of anyones what the candidate's mother's religion is?

Why did he react as if he'd been slapped? 
As I recall, it was quite the issue during Kerry's campaign.  And it was brought up about Madelyn Albright, too. 
Is there something wrong with having Jewish blood?  Is that why he acted so riled up?

One can't help but wonder why Geo Jr doth protest too much:

Far as i know he wasn't protesting Jewish blood. He was taken aback at the irrelevancy of the question. So was the audience.

Rightly so.

And Knute, behave yourself.

They asked Kerry and Albright about their mother's religion? I don't remember it - got a link?

Where do you get the idea he thought there was something wrong with having Jewish blood. He seemed riled by the question.

And what reporter questioned Albrechts heritage or for that matter Kerry's?

There was all manner of lunatic right speculation about Kerry :http://www.rr-bb.com/showthread.php?t=133864

Madeline ALBRIGHT was pleased when she discovered her Jewishess. It doesn't look like Geo Jr the second is very pleased about. Wonder why?  ???

Yep, one of the dumbest things I've seen all day.

Apparently to this "journalist" it's the most important thing in the world. My understanding is it was the first questioned asked out of the box.

And the liberal left seem to think it's a big deal. They have been lighting the blogs on fire about it all day. As in the case with Lieberman, they seem to be making a big deal about how somebody happens to be Jewish.

Never.

Kerry's flip flopping was the issue during that campaign.

Knutie linked to Kos, So we've established that Allen is a racist.


Kos didn't establish anything of the kind. What do you call liberals who throw oreo cookies at Micheal Steele. What do you call liberals who say Colin Powell is a "house nigger"?

But apparently, he's got something against Jews as well.

Says the guy who is going on an on about Allen's mother possibly being Jewish.

Yup, because as usual the liberal left overplayed their hand. The Webb campaign and liberals are now using Allen's mom as a political prop. I doubt it's going to go over well.

Don't you think it's the Allen camp that is milking the Jewish mother question for all it's worth, so that Allen can appear to be the victim of intolerance instead of the racist little shit that he really is?  And so that the whole "macaca" thing will fade away?
