"Jewish Americans cannot afford to make the wrong decision on Tuesday, November 4th, 2008," the e-mail from the Republican Federal Committee of PA reads. "Many of our ancestors ignored the warning signs in the 1930s and 1940s and made a tragic mistake. Let's not make a similar one this year!"The email was sent to 75,000 Jewish voters. The Republicans in Pa have disavowed the email and claim that the "strategist" who helped draft the letter was fired.
It warns "Fellow Jewish Voters" of the danger of a second Holocaust due to the threats to Israel from its neighbors and touts Republican presidential candidate John McCain's qualifications over those of Obama.
The AP reports that Bryan Rudnick who was responsible for the email said he had authorization from party officials to send the email, but wouldn't say who it was.
According to TPM it gets better. The person who is distancing himself from the email is Peter Feldman, the same guy who on Thursday was pushing the mugging hoax by the white woman who falsely claimed that a black Obama supporter attackers and maimed her.
Ironically, on Saturday night, Feldman told the press that McCain "rejects politics that degrade our civics." The AP didn't remind him about the mugging hoax.
Perhaps McCain ought to distance himself from the Pa GOP and especially Peter Feldman, whose fear mongering, race baiting and desperation have gotten the best of him.
Speaking of desperation by the GOP see also these stories at TPM
WH is using the DOJ for political purposes again. WH wants information on the 200,000 newly registered voters in Ohio.Governor Palin is now warning folks that if Obama becomes president we will no longer be free. We will be communist.
Claims of voter intimidation in NM Voting rights group calls for probe.
Furthermore, Palin took the clothing from the GOP but has strayed so far from the message that the McCain people plan to shred her after the election.
Worst. Campaign. Ever. The McCain campaign may go down in history as the dirtiest and most desperate presidential campaign in our history. And we still have a week to go. Expect it to get even worse.
