Since I try to keep out of US politics on this blog I haven't written about the huge battles over Chuck Hagel's nomination to be Secretary of Defense. I've always admired Hagel, and most of the firestorm over his alleged sentiments towards Iran and Israel were fantasy: the positions attributed to him by some were closer to my own sentiments than his.
I should note that one of the sillier parts of this was the rightwing claim that he had been endorsed by something allegedly called "Friends of Hamas," which doesn't exist. But, of course, because the Internet abhors a vacuum, just because an organization doesn't exist doesn't mean it shouldn't have a website.
And yes, the fact that I linked to something called friendsofhamas.com, even a satirical one, may come back to bite me someday, at least among those who didn't click through.
