It was Christmas on The McLaughlin Group last weekend, but things sure felt more like Easter season when it came time for each host to name the “Turncoat of the Year.” They could just as well called it “Judas of the Year” with the picks they were coming up with. No surprise in Pat Buchanan picking the neoconservatives. But Lawrence O’Donnell mentioned Richard Perle, John McLaughlin named Jack Abramoff and Eleanor Clift pointed the finger at Joe Lieberman. Tony Blankley chose Gwyneth Paltrow (rabbinic scion, occasional shul goer) and O’Donnell also collared Colin Powell (claims to speak Yiddish). Happy Holidays.
