How does Robert Reich, former Bill Clinton cabinet member, and noted public policy analyst, respond to this pairing of Gingrich and [contributor Sheldon] Adelson? He claims not to know what lies behind the Adelson support for Gingrich.

I believe Reich feigns ignorance in his blog posting, rather than admit the obvious, the linkage of Jewish money to American politics, which we all know, is a taboo topic for establishment media types. [Emphasis added.]

James Wall, who is either 1) asserting that the Treasury prints two kinds of money, Jewish and Gentile; 2) contending that Adelson makes campaign contributions in shekels rather than dollars; or 3) using an old anti-Semitic trope to make a perfectly legal campaign contribution sound sinister–you be the judge.
