Is anti-Semitism a partisan issue?

The House Republicans act to maintain the Colorado Springs cover-up.

When anti-Semitism occurs at the Air Force Academy, the Democrats want to investigate it, and the Republicans don’t. The Republicans seem to think that forcing fundamentalist Christians to stop persecuting Jews is anti-Christian. (Note that “political correctness” has become wingnut-speak for opposing bigotry.)

Unfortunately, there are currently more Republicans. And of course the Bush Administration stands foursquare behind the bigots.
