The quote of the day comes from Rep. Alcee Hastings, a Florida Democrat who, according to Fox News, told a Jewish audience to beware of Gov. Sarah Palin
(Sen. John McCain's
vice presidential running mate) because " 'anybody toting guns and stripping moose don't care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks.... If Sarah Palin isn't enough of a reason for you to get over whatever your problem is with Barack Obama, then you damn well had better pay attention,' Hastings told the audience, which burst into laughter and applause, according to individuals present."
Jewish Republicans weren't too thrilled with Hastings's outspoken remarks, and the Republican Jewish Coalition strongly condemned them.
