Ari versus Helen

This is the point I was making yesterday -- Thomas had been making conservatives, especially pro-Israel conservatives, angry for years. A lot of the trouble went back to her 2000 resignation from the collapsing UPI and hiring by Hearst Newspapers. Thomas's seat in the front row came because she worked for UPI; out of generosity and respect, she was allowed to keep it even as she lobbed opinionated questions, often from the left on foreign policy. She spent eight of her years as a columnist irritating the Bush administration and supporters of Israel. That built up the reservoir of ill feeling that led, over the weekend, to an effort to oust Thomas. Fleischer's role in that campaign -- acting as countless conservatives would have wanted him to act -- should not come as a surprise.

Fred Malek: It's not the 'Jew-counting,' it's the deception

Why is this a story? I've had some trouble figuring that out. Malek's work from 39 years ago has haunted him since it was reported by Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein in 1976, but it didn't prevent his rebirth as a successful businessman, Republican activist, and party power-broker. In 1988, The last time the story broke -- aided, as it has been now, by newly released memos -- Malek had been appointed deputy chairman of the RNC during a presidential campaign. He quit that post, apologized, and explained himself.

In making a point about Folks and his media strategy, Erickson has dinged up the credibility of Haley supporters a little.

A Nikki Haley standoff in South Carolina

The surreality of this aside, obviously a confirmed story from Folks is going to be more damaging than any backstory on why he came out with it.
