This is much worse than Trent Lott's comments.
Why aren't Republicans calling for his resignation?

because it makes the silence coming from the Democratic camp all the more deafening.... double standard....

They are. Everyone is calling for him to resign, and Nancy Pelosi and Moran both say his apology would suffice.
I disagree. I think he needs to be thrown out.
I have no use for Moran whatsoever but what was offensive about what he said? Is the word 'Jewish' a bad word? Should people not say 'Jewish' anymore? What word should they use? Semite American?
It's been obvious for some time that the "anti-war" sentiment on both the left and right (Buchanon) is heavily steeped in anti-semitism. Let an "anti-war" personage speak long enough and eventually they will get, by way of Palestine and then Sharon, to how they think that American Jews--they will spit out the name Wolfowitz--are in cootrol of U.S. policy.
The Dems don't condemn anti-semitism because they think that it politically advantageous to exploit anti-semitism.

I suppose we have to face facts. Despite the Holocaust and a 1,000-year history of virulent world anti-semitism, Judaism somehow has retrograded into the same categories of anti-Italian, Irish, Polish, Asian, etc. minibiases--and is now one of the "minor faux pas". Jews are after all "white people" and therefore fall in the unfortunate category of the despised white majority. Unfortunately, African-American issues, fanned by likes of race hustlers like Sharpton and Jackson, will never abade. Misegenation is probably the only answer.

Look, The democrats will even retain a man so vile as to taint and corrupt the young in this nation, teaching them to use his sexual techniques. Disgust hardly defines my feelings for the democrats propping up one more of their elected regardless of merit. This is the height of hyporicracy.

I think he's an idiot and I feel obliged to say that I am a strong supporter of the nation of Israel, however, I don't think Moran should be required to resign for his remarks.

This is old old news. The media is finally catching up with Moran. He has been saying stuff and doing stuff like this for a long time. He has a long history of anti- Israel rhetoric and policies. His campaign contributors are primarily Saudi and Pakistani. He even refers to the "temple mount" by the arab name. On Sept 11, his comment on the house floor was that we should protect the muslim population in the U.S.--that was his first response to the tragedy. See MorAntics.va8gop.org

Democrats are racist and worthless and not even human!

The Democrats aren't as afraid of their Jewish constituents as they are of their African-American constituents. That's the deal.
What was said was called a White House "blast"? A rather bombastic word for such measured rhetoric.
Think back to Lott and then reguage, please. A blast would have required courage.
