A Few Quick Political Observations

- Obama may well lose in 2012, but I don't buy for a second that he's going to do significantly worse with the Jewish vote than any other Democrat generally has. That's because the whole country isn't the 9th district of New York, and not a single Jewish liberal is going to fall for the GOP spin that Obama hates the Jews.

- I think if Chris Christie runs for president, his weight won't be an issue- because, if every fat person in the country voted for him, he would win. What will be an issue is his loudmouth East Coast-ness, which is something that's generally foreign to most people in most of the country. Ed Rendell's never been a viable presidential candidate for the same reason. And of course, he's done unforgivable things like nominating a Muslim judge and not insulting homosexuality strongly enough.

- I don't care that Sarah Palin had an affair with Glen Rice, except that she did so while covering him as a journalist, which seems to be more of an ethical breach than the "lamestream media" has ever committed in their coverage of Palin.

- Rick Santorum is a vile, hateful piece of human garbage. And if you were to rank the GOP presidential field by how evil they are, he'd fall somewhere in the middle of the pack.

- If he gets elected president, Rick Perry would almost certainly be the most right-wing president in U.S. history. Rick Perry is struggling right now because the Republican base perceives him as not right-wing enough.
