Every once in a while, I hear someone remark, with sadness or frustration, that the GOP is more Good For The Jews™ than the Democratic Party, so why do Jews still overwhelmingly vote for Democrats?
Ladies and gentlemen, I present Exhibit DCXXII: Tommy Thompson, Republican, former Governor of Wisconsin, former Secretary of Health and Human Services, currently running for President, speaking to the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism:
I’m in the private sector and for the first time in my life I’m earning money. You know that’s sort of part of the Jewish tradition.
PS: Tommy Thompson, the former Governor of Wisconsin, should not be confused with Fred Thompson, the former Senator from Tennessee who plays the DA on Law and Order.
