Does Deborah Wasserman-Schultz Hate Israel?
Probably not. But that's as good an explanation as any of her exploiting Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren with an outright lie, claiming Oren said Republican policies toward Israel were "dangerous." Oren - one of the smartest guys around - would never say anything like that and issued an unequivocal denial. The execrable Wasserman-Schultz then doubled down on her lie and said she had been misquoted. She hadn't, as an audio tape from Phillip Klein at the Examiner shows. Klein broke this sorry story. Read about it here. Wasserman-Schultz continues to be one of the most wretched figures in American politics. Meanwhile, the Democratic Party dropped reference to Jerusalem as the capital of Israel from its platform. And the beat goes on.
