Cohen Compares Sweet Sarah to the 'Killer of Christ'

Posted By on Wed, Sep 10, 2008 at 2:23 PM

You just knew this was coming. The Tennessee GOP is demanding that Congressman Cohen apologize. Says GOP chair Robin Smith:
“Frankly, we’re shocked that Rep. Cohen, a Memphis Democrat who was targeted by vicious anti-Jewish slurs and bigotry during his two successful runs for Congress, would make such idiotic and offensive comments. Comparing Gov. Palin to the killer of Christ is simply beyond the pale. Gov. Palin’s strong Christian life and faith are self-evident.”
Update: Kleinheider ruminates on the controversy: "Did Steve Cohen really compare Sarah Palin to the 'killer' of Christ? Is that an accurate way to describe Pilate’s role in the death of Christ? Were there any others responsible? Could it be said that it was humanity at large who was responsible for Christ’s death?"
