What’s the Jewish angle on the Eliot Spitzer debacle? Gawker helps us out under the title “Shanda fur die Goyim”:
And he could have been the first Jewish president! Eliot Spitzer, (still) governor of New York State, is weighing his resignation following his tryst with a shiksa prostitute. Though the idea of a Jewish president is great, let’s be real: The guy was way too bald to ever make it into the Oval Office, regardless of his foreskin status. Some have blamed the Portnoy’s Complaint instinct for this mess, but honestly, if this affair shows anything, it’s that Jews are just like any other politicians, only occasionally more so.
