How soon we forget

John Schwenkler highlights this I-can’t-believe-it’s-not-parody entry from Ezra Klein on the GOP’s alleged anti-Semitism. Usually, this sort of thing merits a hearty chuckle and little else, but I’m kind of astounded that someone who routinely (and, in many cases, correctly) chastises conservatives for wielding anti-Semitism like a club to stifle debate over Middle East policy would so readily resort to the politics of accusation. I mean, the Gaza incursion is a fresh memory. The knee-jerk assertions of anti-Semitism still linger. Perhaps we should take our own advice and hold off on impugning the other side’s motives until there’s something approaching hard evidence.
