David Horovitz is the founder and editor of the Times of Israel and an extremely reasonable man. When he emails to let me know that he has “just written and published this rather angry op-ed,” as he did this morning, I pay attention. David’s column is “Memo to Kerry: It’s not the economy, stupid.” Subhead: “The secretary’s ridiculous talk of $4 billion in private investment for the Palestinians demonstrates that the path out of our conflict is not going to be cleared by Washington.”
Which reminds me. I once had an attorney colleague who was referred to as Big Stupid. In the case of my colleague, the reference was entirely unfair. In Kerry’s case, it fits just right, if one ignores his animus.
