What the Malek Flap Says About the 2010 Midterms

 Last week The Washington Post ran a story on veteran Republican operative Fred Malek and his role in one of the Nixon administration's many untoward activities, specifically memos Malek wrote singling out Jews in the Bureau of Labor Statistics.  As one who has always found the Nixon era of particular fascination, I can tell you this is just one of many examples of Richard Nixon's special paranoia toward Jews and other minorities finding its way into administration policy.  Along with Watergate, this aspect of the Nixon administration will always stain its place in history, marring a record that might otherwise have reflected significant accomplishment.

No one, including Malek, condones his actions nearly four decades ago, and he has long since apologized.  His contrition seems genuine, given his presence on the board of the America-Israel Friendship League.  He has been defended by no less a figure than Anti-Defamation League director Abraham Foxman, as well as Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA), a close personal friend of Malek's.

However, the Post story was clearly driven by Democrats, ostensibly because of Malek's appointment to Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell's budget reform committee.  Most interesting, though, is the prominent place accorded to Jon Vogel, executive director of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC).  

Why is the DCCC interested in a decades-old sin by a state appointee?  Because Malek also happens to chair the American Action Network, a new 501(c)(4) the DCCC expects to spend $25 million to target Democrats in the fall.  The DCCC apparently hopes to damage the American Action Network's credibility, and probably also hopes that some of this will rub off on GOP House candidates, some of whom weren't even born yet during the Nixon administration, in a classic guilt-by-association ploy.

Some Democrats, including Virginia Senate Majority Leader Dick Saslaw, don't agree with this strategy, probably because it reeks of desperation.  Facing a national midterm election (i.e. a referendum on the Democrats) in a time of near-double-digit unemployment and record deficits, this is what the DCCC comes up with?  This may tell us more about the 2010 midterms than any poll or pundit ever could.

Fred "the Jew Counter" Malek

So when Fred "the Jew Counter" Malek apologizes were supposed to forgive him, but when Helen Thomas apologizes, she deserves to be villified and fired according to the right?

Your double standards are blatant and obviously foolish.  And it looks like Malek is still obsessed with counting minorities.

So, by your standards maybe Hamas should apologize ?

Malek is just the Left's latest attempt to counter all the bad Press they've been getting, they lost Helen Thomas from the Left Front Row of the Whitehouse, and they're losing public support on all fronts, foreign or domestic.   Its sort of a Malek /Thomas "your Jew hater is worse than our Jew hater".

She was a non-Performing Journalists, not asking any Questions, doing Zero Journalistic investigations on Zero's latest crime wave.   It was about time she broke a REAL STORY, even if it was her retirement.

Malek is a non story, just as Valerie Plame was.  The Democrats played the Plame story with themselves as "outraged Liberals", and played us for fools for months before the Plame comedy was over.   The public is fed up with these Liberal Crooks and their trips to the Courthouses with phony charges, the Hypocrisy of the Liberal outrages, their Congressional "hearings" on made up issues (Obey), and most of all their fake Outrage of what happened 10 years ago.  

Americans are tired of this Leftist crapola, fake outrage, and the hypocisy of double standards on display via the state run media.   Tuesday was Super.

 

A 100,000 Dems voting for an unemployed felon in SC ?

What does this SC Winner Greene tell us about the Democratic organization ?

Just "Vote Black" and not on Policies ?  I think that would be rather racist of the Dems.  The only other other explanation is that the Dems in SC are not engaged on any political level, other that the "Democrat Blagojevich" level.   Or, maybe Greene bought the Primary nomination ?

As for the "plant" accusations.......which crooked Democrat organization planted the Felon ?

If the Jordan Cover 3 doesn’t ring any bells its because it was dubbed the Jordan Superfreak before. Nice job by Jordan Brand renaming the sneaker as Superfreak doesn’t sound like a sneaker at all. But no matter what you public administration school | industrial engineering bachelors degree
