2006_08_koch.jpgIn The Forward, Ed Koch and Rafael Medoff have an article, Will Mel Gibson Get Away With His Antisemitic Tirade? And it's like a greatest hits of famous figures (mostly political) getting their slur on. For instance:
- Jesse Jackson called New York City "Hymietown"
- James Baker saying, "F— the Jews, they don't vote for us anyway."
- Marge Schott's Hitler love and her remarks about blacks
- Maybe everything Pat Buchanan has said about Jews

These figures have had various fallouts from their opinions (Jackson, Baker and Buchanan are relatively unscathed, Scott had to sell the Reds). Really, it's been said before, but those South Park guys were brilliant when they made The Passion of the Jew.
