Mississippi Congressman Visits Israel

And faces bizarre video attack from local blog

Print Email

A Mississippi blog called Y’all Politics made this video to express displeasure at the fact that Democratic Congressman Travis Childers is in Israel this week, rather than at home fielding harangues from his constituents about health care reform:

While politicians’ relationships with Israel are often blamed for various problems, drawing a correlation between images of Jerusalem and screaming, visor-clad southerners, all to the soundtrack of an eerily aggressive rendition of Hava Nagila may be in poor taste. The video pits Childers’ reluctance to take a clear stance on health-care reform against a statement by fellow Dem Gene Taylor that he wouldn’t vote for it “if they put a gun to his head.” Y’all Politics is throwing down the gauntlet: Do away with your “civility” and “new friends” who just happen to wear yarmulkes and get back to your hyperbole-loving constituency to join the yelling.
