So Much Taboo, So Little Time To Break It

Jeffrey Goldberg collects years worth of pundits congratulating themselves over their daring breaches of the "taboo" over criticizing Israel. I wonder if they grasp just how much they sound like your cranky conservative uncle who takes so much pride in his bold anti-PCness ("you say one bad word about Negros -- I'm sorry, I mean Afro-Americans or whatever they're calling themselves these days -- and you're tarred a racist.").

I will grant you that a lot of pundits are plenty critical of Israel. But I couldn't help notice a lot of those statements specified that *elected officials* treated criticism of Israel as taboo and I did not notice any elected officials on that list.
