Classy.

Lee Whitnum, who is mounting her second bid for the Senate in Connecticut, blasted [Rep. Chris] Murphy over his support for Israel, the New Haven Register reported.

“I’m dealing with a whore here who sells his soul to AIPAC, who will say anything for the job,” Whitnum said, referring to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.

Whitnum said anti-American sentiment worldwide could be cured if the federal government were to prosecute U.S. settlers who “go to Israel and maim or kill in the Promised Land.” She also called for the elimination of U.S. aid to Israel.

“The Jewish community has always taken care of its own,” she said.

It sounds like she’s just calling for the elimination of Israel, period.

I can’t wait for the NBC special cut of these comments.

By the way, here’s a screen shot of Whitnum’s web site. Click to enlarge. She doesn’t even try to hide what she thinks of Israel, she has an item on the left titled “Zionism is Stealing. And guess who she blames for the Iraq war? And guess who she blames for 9-11?

If you guessed “The Jooos,” give yourself cigar.
