    New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd came under fire Sunday night for what some on both the left and the right said were words that came dangerously close to anti-Semitism.

    Dowd’s Sunday column, about the Republican ticket's foreign policy proposals, accused Mitt Romney of being a tool of neo-conservative puppet masters.

    The problem, critics said, was that many leading American neo-conservatives are Jewish and that Dowd’s turns of phrase were reminiscent of anti-Semitic slurs of the 20th Century, Politico reported.


    "Maureen may not know this, but she is peddling an old stereotype, that gentile leaders are dolts unable to resist the machinations and manipulations of clever and snake-like Jews," Jeffrey Goldberg, the Atlantic columnist and leading journalist on Israeli issues, wrote.

    "[A]mazing that apparently nobody sat her down and said, this is not OK," Blake Hounshell, the managing editor of Foreign Policy magazine, tweeted.

    What. Racial code-speak from a lefty stooge? I can't believe it. She didn't even mention golf, not once.
