Nor could they hit an important Israeli public building, nor do much property damage.” – Elliott Abrams/Weekly Standard

Oh for a thousand. That’s Hamas’s batting average on the eighth day of what Israel calls Operation Protective Edge and what could be called the Insane Hamas War.

“I can confirm that the attack ads in Mississippi run by ‘All Citizens for Mississippi’ were funded by Senate Republicans, including Senators Mitch McConnell, John Cornyn, Rob Portman, Bob Corker, and Roy Blunt. It appears our Senate Republican leaders are willing to risk losing a Senate majority so long as they can get their own re-elected. Yes folks, it is true. I can confirm what we all suspected.” – Erick Erickson/RedState
