We takes our analysis where we finds it … and we found this on Wonkette, thanks to Technorati (–>)
Maybe-candidate Mike Bloomberg is Jewish, but it doesn’t seem to be a big deal to him, because the richest people in the world are seldom too concerned with Identity Politics or religion or whatever the rest of you people worry about. That’s the word form the Jewish Daily Forward (another media property allegedly controlled by the Jews):
- “Chuck Schumer will come to a Jewish Orthodox event and start telling people how his great-grandfather came from some town in Europe …. I have never heard Bloomberg do anything of the sort.”
- Giuliani made a big show of throwing Yasser Arafat out of Lincoln Center, while Bloomberg fought the City Council’s attempts to close the NYC PLO office.
- He appointed a Moslem to the city’s Human Rights Convention, despite a terrible outcry from the Jews.
- At some breakfast, instead of talking “sentimentally about his bubbe or love of noodle kugel,” he told the Jews it was good that he raised their property taxes, and they gave him a standing ovation.
Hooray for a candidate who maybe will shut the fuck up about G-d!
A few posts ago, I despaired of this country ever electing a woman or person of color as president. Silly me, as one of the persons commenting to the above column reminded us. We can add Bloomberg’s ethnic identity to the list, if we want to be glass-half-empty about this. Well, once again defying my curmudgeon rating, I will try to be glass-half-full. Not electing all those types that haven’t fit somebody’s fantasy of True America has led us to our present sorry predicament. Why not change? Why not now? Bloomberg in 2008!
It’s it for now. Thanks, again,
