QUOTE OF THE DAY….From New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg, speaking at the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County, on the continuing whisper campaign that Barack Obama is Muslim:

“Let’s call those rumors what they are: lies. They are cloaked in concern for Israel, but the real concern is about partisan politics….This is wedge politics at its worst, and we’ve got to reject it — loudly, clearly, and unequivocally.”

Good for him. Via Taegan Goddard.
