The ‘mama loshen’ made it to the White House Monday, voiced for the gaggle by Presidental Cantor Tony Snow.

Regarding continued investigations of Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez, Snow said:

“Well, what’s interesting is that there have been all these hearings on the Attorney General and yet nobody has really laid a glove on him…

“At this point, we have hundreds of hearings that have produced bupkis….

Bupkis!  The Yiddish word literally means ‘beans,’ but signifies something that’s of little real value/worthless.

So who taught Snow Yiddish? 

We’re betting he studied “Yiddish With George and Laura” like a yeshiva bochur studies the Babli.
