    Spitzer: Bill Kristol's Attacks 'Despicable'

His latest offering is a scathing takedown of Bill Kristol, whose pro-Israel group recently aired an ad that criticizes Occupy Wall Street as anti-Semitic. Spitzer calls the ad “cheap, base, and demagogic.” Of course, if Spitzer seems especially feisty, it might be because he’s actually shown in the commercial defending Occupy Wall Street, seconds before footage of a demonstrator yelling “You’re a bum, Jew!” at a man wearing a yarmulke. Spitzer calls this tactic “the oldest cheapest game played by those who have nothing to say that actually responds to the real issues. They try to change the topic.”
