Cheers for John Legend for tweeting this earlier tonight:
So sick watching our Secretary of State have to grovel so hard to tell Israel how much he loves them while Israeli cabinet shits on him
— John Legend (@johnlegend) July 30, 2014
Because honestly, aren't you sick of it too? No matter what you think about Kerry and his efforts, this obsequious "I must love Israel even when they're being idiots" nonsense is just out of control.
Former Reagan speechwriter John Podhoretz, on the other hand, did not care for it at all, and shot this one back at Legend:
What a lovely guy. It reminds me of the good old days, only then they took the opposite tack and told people to shut up if they criticized the government. Why, if I didn't know better, I'd think they were partisan hacks who want to shut up anyone who doesn't agree with them.
Well, of course they are.
I do, however, get giggles out of the fact that Legend's tweet has been retweeted over 12,000 times, while Podhoretz has received a whopping 54 retweets. Looks like Twitchy wouldn't even touch that one with a ten-foot pole, and that's saying something.
I'm just surprised he didn't tell Legend to shine his shoes, too.
