Only in The New York Sun…

The following headline appeared above the fold on the front-page of New York’s (not so) covertly Jewish daily, the Sun: “Indyk Rushes To Ohio for Mrs. Clinton.”

For those for whom “Indyk” isn’t exactly a boldface name, let me put an end to your head-scratching: The “Indyk” to whom The New York Sun’s headline writer refers is Martin Indyk, director of the Brookings Institution’s Saban Center for Middle East Policy and a former American ambassador to Israel.

I love it when the Sun gets all Inside Baseball about Israel.

The funniest part is that Indyk is only mentioned once in the entire article. The article’s mostly about how Barack Obama is struggling to allay Jewish concerns about how he would handle Mideast policy while Hillary Clinton’s surrogates are trying to sell her as the safe choice.
