Unfortunately, the Jewish vote doesn't count for much in London

London Mayor Ken Livingstone has admitted that comparing a Jewish reporter to a Nazi concentration camp guard was 'offensive' -- but insists he won't apologize because he's 'not a racist.' Right. Any day now, he's going to claim the transcript of the exchange with the reporter came from a Zionist Front Organization.
In the meanwhile, Londoners' main concern seems to be that Livingstone's comments might cost them the 2012 Olympics, for which they are running neck-and-neck with Paris. How about a little concern that their mayor is an anti-Semite?
