It’s kind of a Jewish thing isn’t it? Assessing national and international events through a mosaic prism wherein the most important consideration is “Nu? Is it good for the Jews?” Now that the Caucuses are well under way, it might be a good time to poll you, our Jewlicious audience, and see who amongst the Democrat and Republican candidates vying for the highest office in the land that contains the largest Jewish population in the diaspora, is the most uh… Jewlicious. Much ink has been spilled and many pixels have been slaughtered as pundits have weighed in on the various candidates’ abilities and weaknesses. Me? All I care about is what you think. So we’ll cut to the chase… tell me! And do make sure to leave a comment or two.
|The Democrats||The Republicans|
The Jews traditionally vote overwhelmingly for the Democrats in Presidential elections, although that support has been dwindling over the years (albeit slightly). Jews seem to like the Democrats social welfare policies and generally kinder and gentler outlook with respect to national domestic issues. We are a community descended from immigrants after all!
With all that neocon blather going around it seems that while we don’t vote in overwhelming numbers for the Republicans, we sure as heck control party! Many Jews typically like the Republicans’ strong support of the State of Israel and strong stance against terrorism both domestically and abroad. Of course the whole Iraq thing throws everything for a loop, but didn’t we orchestrate that too?
Now vote! You can only vote once per party as we’ve tracked your IP address and have placed a cookie on your computer. Of course you could delete all your cookies and change your IP address, or go to another computer, but that would make you a dick. Or an employee of an automated polling device company (doh!). These polls will expire on January 20th.
