The Joy of Hanukkah

JTA did all the work in finding this one, so they get the props for it. I’m very happy they posted this amazing clip from The Daily Show.

The “Moment of Zen,” found at the end of every episode is very hit or miss. Sometimes, you are rolling on the floor laughing. Other times, you just don’t even get it. But the staff at The Daily Show found an amazing clip of George W. Bush from 2001 describing the joys of Hanukkah.

I’m not usually one who goes out of his way to make Bush jokes, but oh dear this one is good. Once again, sorry Canadians, this video just won’t work. I’ll put up the quote after the video.

“I couldn’t imagine somebody like Osama bin Laden understand the joy of Hanukkah.” -George W. Bush (WOW!)
