Jackie Mason: Mel No Anti-Semite: "When Cavuto asked, 'Who was that rabbi who suggested maybe Mel Gibson should apologize to his congregation on Yom Kippur?' Mason shot back: 'You know why? Because nobody knows who this rabbi is. Who cares who he is! All of a sudden he becomes a producer, all of a sudden he's producing a show with him and Mel Gibson and he'll become the star of the show and then you'll see it in the newspapers: 'STARRING RABBI SCHWARTZ WITH MEL GIBSON' -- he'll probably get second billing because it's another rabbi looking for attention. They decided -- the judge and the jury of this whole situation -- they've become a personal mafia now because who knows who they are? Who would pay attention to them? Foxman and this other guy are loving it.'"
He said a number of other wise things, but I thought this one particularly was a good point: once you are making a living out of asking people for money to fight X, there's sure an incentive never to win.
