Ordinarily I'd ignore the anti-Semitism. Not this week.
Invective goes with the columnist territory. To judge by commenters, emailers and tweeters, I am ugly and fat, a dried-up old hag, a leftist moonbat and spiteful Obama-hater.
Also, and I gather this is supposed to be another insult, a Jew.
I woke up Saturday morning -- I was going to synagogue to say "kaddish," the mourner's prayer, for my father, who died this summer -- to this lovely tweet:
"Oh, what a diverse panel, two Jews and a shabbos goy," the tweeter, who shall go unnamed, wrote about my scheduled appearance on CBS' "Face the Nation" with Atlantic Media's Ron Brownstein and Republican strategist Karl Rove.
(The Rove reference, by the way, refers to a gentile helper who performs certain tasks during the Sabbath. My tweeter meant it in a derogatory way, as an enabler of Jews and Jewish causes.)
