  • Let Trump be #NeverTrump

    By Marty Kaplan

    May 16, 2016 | 12:31 pm

    I bet a friend dinner that Donald Trump would win the Republican nomination. Now I need to decide whether to bet a bottle of wine that Trump will beat Hillary Clinton. What I take from the tightening polls is that either side could win, a prospect that terrifies me, and not just...

  • Former VP candidate Palin endorses Trump in 2016 race

    January 19, 2016 | 2:26 pm

    Donald Trump, the reality television star-turned-politician, was endorsed by Sarah Palin, the politician-turned-reality TV star, in his front-running bid to be the next Republican U.S. president, his campaign said on Tuesday.

    To voters, it may seem a natural fit. Though she never...

  • President Donald J. Trump’s State of the Union Address or: ‘The Plot Against America II’

    By David N. Myers

    December 9, 2015 | 4:49 pm

    January 16, 2018

    “My Fellow Americans, Vice President Palin, distinguished members of Congress, and esteemed guests, I am deeply honored to offer this State of the Union address, my first since being elected your president in November 2016. 

    I must commence with a warning. ...

  • Sarah Palin: Netanyahu good for ‘heartland’ Americans

    March 20, 2015 | 10:55 am

    Sarah Palin has not one but two posts on her Facebook page congratulating Benjamin Netanyahu on his reelection. Maybe two makes up for none from President Barack Obama.

    In each post Palin says Americans in the heartland “will sleep better knowing Bibi remains the voice of reason and strength in the beautiful nation of Israel.”

    Bibi elicits a lot of reactions in Israel and abroad. Sleep, though, has to be a new one.

  • Sarah Palin’s dog and Hadassah

    May 1, 2014 | 3:23 pm

    Is it good news or bad news for Hadassah: The Women’s Zionist Organization, that it now shares a name with former Alaska governor/Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin’s dog?

    With its Jerusalem hospital in financial crisis and its membership aging, the venerable...

  • The Obamacare Apocalypse

    By Marty Kaplan

    November 11, 2013 | 10:32 am

    Last week, a professor of physics and astronomy told the New York Times that the probability of an asteroid hitting the earth ----  it happened over Chelyabinsk, Russia, in February, with the energy of 30 Hiroshimas ----  isn't once in a century or two, it's once in a decade or...

  • Bristol Palin, Rielle Hunter & Anderson Cooper

    By Ilana Angel

    July 5, 2012 | 9:03 pm

    I am amazed that these three people have all made the news recently. Bristol Palin’s reality show started airing, Rielle Hunter’s memoir of her life as a home wrecking whore was published, and Anderson Cooper made headlines for coming out.  Really?  Bristol is not worthy of a...

  • Game Change: A Tabloid Movie

    By Ilana Angel

    March 25, 2012 | 3:49 pm

    I finally got around to watching the HBO film “Game Change” and it was interesting.  By interesting of course I mean if you are into tabloid television, it is really interesting.  I happen to love me a little tabloid folic so it was good fun.  That said, it was fluff and I...

    By Rabbi John Rosove

    March 12, 2012 | 9:43 am

    In watching “Game Change” on HBO this weekend about the rise and fall of Sarah Palin, as well as the controversy around Rush Limbaugh’s nasty slander of a decent young woman activist and law student, the scandal in Britain emanating from the hubris of Rupert Murdoch and his...

  • NEWS FLASH: Everyone Loves Jewish People!

    November 17, 2011 | 9:20 am

    I have written a lot of stories for JewishJournal.com. It’s been two and a half years of five to ten blogs a week, not including the stories I’ve written for the weekly Jewish Journal publication.  That is a lot of material and when I go back and look through it all, I am both...

  • Michele Bachmann Is Setting Women Back

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    September 26, 2011 | 2:50 pm

    There are a lot of unfortunate sentiments that have come from the Republican Party of late – Santorum’s rebuke of a gay soldier, Perry’s love affair with the death penalty, Romney’s cowardice on healthcare.  But none will have the lasting impact that Congressman Michele...

  • Am I One Cup of Tea Away from Voting for Sarah Palin?

    By Ilana Angel

    September 21, 2011 | 10:59 pm

    When I met Sarah Palin in March of last year, I wrote about it, and was immediately admired by some, and shunned by others.  Members of the Republican Party praised me for being kind, and some of my liberal friends told me I was talking to the devil and needed to never speak of her...

  • Roseanne Sings Israeli National Anthem—And It’s Good! [VIDEO]

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    July 5, 2011 | 6:15 pm

    In her television studio in El Segundo, Roseanne Barr is singing the Israeli national anthem — and it’s good.

    “If I asked you to sing ‘Hatikvah,’ would you slug me?” I had hesitantly asked her, remembering her screeching mangling of “The Star-Spangled Banner” before...

    Have you heard the breaking news?

    Gisele Bündchen, the Victoria’s Secret supermodel and a wife of pretty-boy NFL star Tom Brady has announced that she would like to pass a law mandating Mothers having to Breastfeed their babies for a minimum of six (6) months!  Yes, the skinny...

  • Letters to the Editor: Anti-circucision, Sarah Palin, Bin Laden

    June 7, 2011 | 6:29 pm

    Anti-Circumcision Advocates Draw Ire

    It appears that the male genital mutilation organization (MGMbill.org), Matthew Hess and Jena Troutman (“In Foreskin Fight, Even Terminology Is Being Disputed,” June 3 ) are following in the footsteps of such notorious leaders as Hitler,...

  • Oh Sarah Palin, what nonsense fell out of your mouth now…

    By Julia Bendis

    June 7, 2011 | 10:10 am

    Before I start, I’d just like to acknowledge that apparently, or should I say allegedly Sarah Palin’s knowledge of American history came from her misguided ten-year-old daughter.  That or she was raised by wolves in the forest.  That is the only explanation that I could find to her...

    June 2, 2011 | 10:13 am

    Sarah Palin visited New York tourist spots sporting a large Star of David around her neck.

  • If Bachmann and Palin Weren’t Pretty

    By Marty Kaplan

    May 27, 2011 | 10:34 am

    I wonder how much airtime Michele Bachmann (R.-Minn.) would get if she didn’t look the way she does. I wonder how much of Sarah Palin’s political appeal arises from her physical appeal.

    I have a feeling that wondering this will get me in hot water, but what the hell.

    I think...

  • Letters to the Editor: President Obama, Muslim Americans, Sarah Palin, Independence Day Festival

    May 24, 2011 | 5:52 pm

    Listen to President Obama

    It is ironic that Judea Pearl wrote this article on the eve of perhaps the worst foreign policy speech on Israel and the Middle East in American history (“Words Matter — Obama’s Next Challenge,” May 20). His phrase “Words Matter” tells it all....

  • Palin, Trump may be media darlings, but they don’t excite Jewish Republicans

    May 10, 2011 | 12:48 pm

    Republican Jews to Donald Trump: You’re not hired. That is, not until you at least turn up to an interview with a resume.

    And the same goes for Sarah Palin, another media favorite who keeps flirting with a bid for the Republican presidential nomination but never commits.


  • How Can Levi Johnston Write a Book About the Palin Family When He Can’t Read?

    By Ilana Angel

    April 26, 2011 | 9:33 am

    There is no way to say it nicely, or not sound mean, so I will simply say it.  Levi Johnston is a moron.  There are absolutely no redeeming qualities about this kid and I find it hard to believe he can spell anything other than his name, and he probably gets that wrong sometimes, so...

  • Sarah Palin must be so proud - Bristol is cashing in!

    By Julia Bendis

    April 7, 2011 | 2:24 pm

    While reading the newspaper, I stumbled upon an article talking about Sarah Palin’s daughter, Bristol.  Apparently, being an unwed teenage Mother in this country really pays off!  Bristol was named an Ambassador of Candie’s Foundation to speak and spread awareness about being a...

    March 21, 2011 | 6:00 pm

    Who is Danny Danon?

    He’s the Israeli Knesset Member who escorted Sarah Palin around Israel on her recent visit.

    Danon, like Palin, is young, right-wing, very approachable and charismatic.  Yes, they make a lovely couple.  Ideologically, he represents a secular, hard line stance...

    Poor Natalie Portman—who has suffered more than her share of fools this past week—courtesy of Dior’s ex-chief designer John Galliano, and now former Arkansas governor and probable 2012 presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee.
