I can't stand Jennifer Rubin, but I got to give her credit for the zing:
"You want a Washington Post journalist to comment on an anti-Semitic screed by some blogger?" Rubin asked. "My arms are not long enough to punch down that far."

It helps that the target is Erick Erickson, of course.

A nice sneer, but not really logical inasmuch as she's only being asked because Erickson actually is prominent, and his quasi-apology almost certainly was due to CNN, where he's a talking head, not a blogger.

Not to mention Rubin is basically a blogger as well; albeit one with an (undeserved) perch on the WaPo. She's hardly a real Washington Post journalist. But I thought it was funny.
