So an Arkansas state senator calls Chuck Schumer "that Jew," and in the course of explaining away the remark through a folksy defense of "traditional values" — apparently this gentleman thinks Andy Griffith was an antisemite or something — he defends himself by saying, "I don’t use a teleprompter and occasionally I put my foot in my month." Yeah! Because when President Obama doesn’t have a Teleprompter in front of him, he starts talking like David Irving mixed with Mahmoud Ahmedinejad reading from The Turner Diaries. Rahm Emanuel will tell you all about that.

It’s telling how a Republican politician thinks he can get his people to ignore an antisemetic remark by dogwhistling something about Obama.
