How to quietly put an Anti-Semite Obama supporter in his place

A guest on “Washington Journal” totally eviscerated an anti-Semite caller without raising either a sweat or his voice.

Eli Lake, senior national-security correspondent for Newsweek and the Daily Beast appeared on CSPAN’s “Washington Journal” Tuesday and took a call from an Obama supporter, clearly at odds with the notion of supporting Israel.

“Good morning Mr. Lake,” the caller, Henry from Michigan began. “Lindsey Graham and John McCain, these are all, pretty much talking heads for the Dick Cheney neocon wing of let’s go to war for the greater glory and good of Israel. The United States has no dog in this fight. We are broke, if you can remember that. We’ve got people who don’t have jobs who are starving in this country. I want everybody to please call and support the president’s deliberative process. Ask the president to get Congress started on jobs here.”

Greta Wodele Brawne program host, interrupted the caller. “Okay Henry, lets leave it there because you say we have no dog in this fight.”

“I don’t want to take this caller seriously. I would like to tell you if you are watching, sir, I regard as a nonsense person,” began Lake. “And the notion that Lindsey Graham and John McCain, who are elected U.S. Senators, are somehow cutouts for the state of Israel as part of a large conspiracy, as a popular fringe theory. Enjoy your basement, enjoy your conspiracies. Back here in reality, I will try to cover the world as it is.”
