The New York Post reports that Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney is having problems raising funds from certain Jews. Why? Well, it seems that the Jews in question are sending their donations to competing candidate Michele Bachmann instead because they think she’s Jewish.
Some Jewish donors are telling fund-raisers for Romney, a Mormon, that while they like him, they’d rather open their wallets for the “Jewish candidate,” who they don’t realize is actually a Lutheran, The Post has learned… “It’s a real problem,” one Romney fund-raiser said. “We’re working very hard in the Jewish community because of Obama’s Israel problem. This was surprising.”
Bachmann has spent time on a kibbutz, volunteering in Israel in 1974. She also claims “I am a Christian, but I consider my heritage Jewish, because it is the foundation, the roots of my faith as a Christian.” But Bachmann is definitely not Jewish. Just watch and listen as she famously mangles the Yiddish word “Chutzpah” in the video below:
And if that wasn’t enough to convince even the thickest of Republican Jews that Bachmann isn’t Jewish, the photo on the right of her enjoying a big ol’ corn dog, clearly and unequivocally demonstrates that Bachmann cannot possibly be a Jewish woman… Because corn dogs are notoriously unkosher… and no good Jewish woman would eat such chazerei in public and with such gusto, no less… What? They’re not kosher!?
