How to Approach This?

Apparently, a Representative was caught on an NSA wiretap. This is interesting in and of itself. The wiretap conversation that was caught apparently made reference to Representative Harman of California offering to "waddle into" a purported espionage case of two AIPAC officials, essentially lobbying for reduced charges. According to the article, in exchange, the Israeli offered to help set her up by lobbying Nancy Pelosi to appoint her chairman of the Intelligence Committee.

As Andrew Sullivan points out: Is it more of a scandal that the Bushies were wire-tapping Harman and then were in a position to blackmail her if she didn't provide public support for ... their warrantless wire-tapping?

When this gets to Rush, I'm sure the first thing he'll do is lambaste Pelosi for being an anti-Semite, since she didn't appoint Harman to the chair of the committee, despite the promise of AIPAC to lobby for just that.
