THANKS KATHERINE. A big hand goes to colleague Greg Sargent for finding this little bit of nonsense. Personally, I don't think poor l'il Katie's "Some of my best friends are in the IDF" alibi is going to hold much water, and the real grace note in the piece is where it was that she happened to commit this latest episode in her ongoing attempt to disgrace her opposable thumbs. If "Talking Religion at a Gun Show" isn't the best definition of the modern Republican base ever contrived, then you can swell my head and call me Newt. Without this crazy woman, none of it would have happened. We should remember that.
