The man who once informed us that “neocon” (a term coined by the neocons themselves) was a secret liberal code word for “Jew,” now chooses to enlighten us on the UAE/port controversy. In the world according to Mr. McBobo, looking askance at a secret deal which circumvented normal procedures in order to hand over control of U.S. ports of entry to a company owned and controlled by a government whose royal family used to hang out with Osama bin Laden — all of this is just anti-Arab racism, pure and simple.

There you have it.
