Antisemite Vs. Wannabe-dictator

First, a repost from March 22, 2007:

Making the rounds of YouTube is a popular campaign ad comparing Hillary Milhous Clinton to the dictator of George Orwell's 1984. The ad is by a supporter of Barack Obama, whose campaign has distanced itself from the ad.

Now attacking Hillary Milhous Clinton as a wannabe-dictator is hardly unfair, since her career has been nothing but a running campaign for control. But there is something wrong when one of the best attack ads in years comes from a backer of an empty suit of a politician who is possibly an antisemite.

The repost is necessary because the antisemitism of Barack Obama is a legitimate issue given his anti-Israel "pals" and the phoniness surrounding his "condemnation" of Louis Farrakhan.
