Republican Jewish Coalition Gets In On The Guilt By Association Game

Everybody else is playing the Guilt-by-Tenuous-Association game (ages 6 and down) so why not the Republican Jewish Coalition, whoever that is? Ari at Oxdown Gazette was tipped off to a pair of advertisements that the RJC is running in newspapers with predominantly Jewish readership. One of the ads features America's Next Top Bugaboo, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who is continually characterized by the Republican Party as having sway over Iran's foreign policy. That ad copy reads, "Ahmadinejad says Israel won't survive. Obama says he would meet with him personally." They'll drink doogh, in Hitler's bunker, with Dracula!

But the best ad is this one:

OH NOES! LOOK AT THAT GUILTY ASSOCIATION! Apparently the Pat Buchanan from fifteen years ago gave Barack Obama the "thumbs up," and now that these two images have been juxtaposed on a piece of newsprint, this can never be undone! Though J Street, the reasonable wing of the Jewish lobby (at the very least, reasonable in that they are willing to admit that they are a lobby, instead of getting crazy shrill about it), is trying to do just that. But, really, the jokes on the RJC, because everyone knows that the Jews in Palm Beach County are just crazy about Pat Buchanan.
