On the topic of the alleged GOP whisper campaign against Tom Schweich:

The Post-Dispatch reports Schweich believed Republican Party chairman John Hancock, elected last weekend, was saying Schweich is Jewish to hurt him politically in the gubernatorial primary race, as many Republican voters are evangelical Christians.

So what are all these reporters trying to say about evangelical Christians? Think maybe they should broaden the target? Narrow it? Tell it like it is? You already know what I think.

After thoughts: Do you think saying evangelicals might not vote for a Jew is an effort to make anti-Semitism sound respectible? As if it’s just a crazy foible of the religious which is to be expected and tolerated?
