A plethora of child care legislation has been passed over the past four decades but programs are still available to only a fraction of the children who need them. The quality of care provided to our children in their early years remains very inadequate, especially for the poorest children.

In light of the recent blood libel manufactured against Sarah "Sarahleh Palinsky" Palin, I present the following video, made during the 2008 campaign, in which Jews communicate why they support Palin and consider her a member of the tribe.

As a Jewess, I think it's an absolute shandeh that so many schmucks are talking such drek about you, Sarah Palin. You have every right to make statements about us chosen people because you practically are a chosen person yourself.

If MSNBC's executives insist on retaining Buchanan as a fixture on their news channel, he must be clearly identified as an enabler of Holocaust deniers.

When Obama's agenda began to peter out under the weight of Republican obstructionism and his own tendency to play it safe, it was the Democratic base that worked the hardest trying to prevent him from falling.

Tell MSNBC that Pat Buchanan Is a Bigot

I don't really care if MSNBC decides to keep Buchanan on its roster. What MSNBC should not be allowed to get away with is passing him off as a respectable analyst rather than identifying him as its bigot in residence.

Patrick Buchanan: What Else Is New?

To the best of my knowledge, none of Buchanan's bosses or colleagues at MSNBC have ever publicly challenged him to explain his bigoted proclivities. Why is this?

While the international community is busy excoriating Ahmadinejad for doubting whether 6 million Jews did in fact perish at the hands of the Third Reich, Buchanan's Web site is encouraging this very conversation.

Pat Buchanan's Holocaust-Denial Enabling Ignored By NBC

HuffingtonPost.com | Jason Linkins | Posted 05.25.2011 | Media

Buchanan's support for Holocaust denialism is ever-present, ongoing, and -- as his John Demjanjuk piece indicates -- very strongly stated. Yet NBC has done diddly-poo in response.

None of Buchanan's MSNBC colleagues have called him to task in the more than 10 days since his loathsome column appeared -- not Joe Scarborough, or Chris Matthews, or Andrea Mitchell.

For more than 30 years, my friendship with Tim was rooted in a shared Irish heritage and similar education, with minimal emphasis on self-expression and more on what Tom Brokaw calls "accountability."
