What Were They Thinking?

What was The American Thinker thinking when it published the following bit of prose?: 

“As Obama took steps toward the United States Senate he found a very powerful sugar daddy who would help fund his rise: George Soros. The billionaire hedge fund titan began supporting Obama very early — as befits a legendary speculative investor always looking for opportunities.”

The irony is that this classic anti-Semitic trope — the predatory Jewish speculator always on the prowl — comes in the midst of a screed that claims Obama is in bed with … anti-Semites. This is either waaaay too clever, or just plain dumb, like The American Thinker itself. After all, what kind of a name is that? It sounds like some foreigner’s idea of typical American moniker.
