There's stupid ...

... and there's Blogging Tory Paul "Celestial Junk" stupid:

The McCain camp has now joined those demanding The Los Angeles Times release a 2003 video that shows Barack Obama celebrating with a group of Palestinians hostile to Israel.

Peter Wallsten wrote in April about Obama's association with former Palestinian operative Rashid Khalidi. The celebration was a farewell for Khalidi as he left Chicago for a job in New York. Wallsten called Khalidi a, "critic of Israel and advocate for Palestinian rights.

"He says, "A special tribute came from Khalidi's friend and frequent dinner companion, the young State Senator Barack Obama... Obama reminisced about meals prepared by Khalidi's wife... and conversations that had challenged his thinking.

Khalidi ... Khalidi ... oh, right! That Rashid Khalidi.

And this is why we mock them ... because they're idiots. Seriously, just total fucking idiots.

Wow. So it's political poison to talk and listen to people on both sides of an issue in a foreign country is it?

Maybe there's footage of politicians talking with the Dalai Lama? Betraying their pefidious "anti-China" mindset?

Who's been hob-nobbing with "anti-Iran" organizations now?

I was listening to McCain talk about this on Democracy Now today. The man is unhinged.
