While each of the major political parties seek to serve the interests of constituent voters, the Kochs' network only serves to further the interests of its billionaire founders.

Jews have conservative interests and liberal values. Most Jews vote their values. So do a lot of other voters whose interests pull them one way and their values another way. For instance, a lot of working-class voters have liberal economic interests and conservative social values. They, too, tend to vote their values.
The way that Mr. Boteach has jumped on my willingness to say "I'm sorry" is political gamesmanship at its finest - and I accept that from a partisan political hatchet-man. I find it far harder to accept such behavior from someone who self-identifies primarily as a spiritual leader of the Jewish community.
