Pandering to Philistines

George Allen put out a press release with a passage from a Jim Webb novel that depicts an adult placing a boy’s penis in his mouth. It’s not a sexual scene, though. Rather, it’s something that Webb says he saw in Bangkok when he was a journalist.

Would Allen, with his delicate sensibilities, object to a major newspaper reporting on a baby dying of herpes because a rabbi, practicing a 5,000-year-old tradition, did the same thing?

Make aspersions” much?
