Recall Golus

http://www.jewishjournal.com/up_front/article/recall_golus_20030919

As recall fever is sweeping the state, a number of cars in the Pico-Robertson and Fairfax neighborhoods are sporting bumper stickers that say "Recall Golus." Who is Golus exactly, you ask? Is it Gray Davis' middle name? The name of the 136th candidate on the ballot?

The stickers, which Rabbi Shimon Raichik of Chabad of Hancock Park produced, are actually a call for the Messiah to come. Golus is the Ashkenazi pronunciation of the Hebrew word galut, meaning exile, as in the state of being for the Jewish people before the Messiah comes and redeems us all to Israel.

If Golus is recalled, then the entire state of California will be transported to the Holy Land, and we won't have to worry about a budget crisis, Davis's lack of personality or unsavory Arnold Schwarzenegger interviews -- which definitely makes recalling Golus something worth thinking about.
