Just when you think Sarah Palin has said the dumbest thing possible, she tops herself with yet another doozy. I wrote a couple of weeks ago that I wanted her to shut up and I totally take it back. I hope she never stops talking because every time she does, she reminds America there is no way in hell she should ever be President of the United States.
Mrs. Palin likes to share her views on Facebook. Perhaps she thinks this will make her popular among voters who are into social networking. It’s not working though because for her, it’s just a place where she hides from live television. What she is doing is showing Americans she is not serious, and should not hold any political office ever again, especially not President.
What are you doing Sarah? It’s time for things to get real and for you to grow up and stop playing games. Either you want to run for President or you don’t, but your rhetoric, while hilarious, is getting boring. Are you just trying to amass your fortune and raise your celebrity, or are you planning to run for President? Your cat and mouse game is annoying and we’re about done.
Following the State of the Union speech of President Obama, Palin said Obama’s use of Sputnik was confusing and I don’t doubt for one second that it was. For Palin. Bless her little heart. She was probably out bashing fish on the head, or shooting wolves from the sky when they talked about Sputnik in her history class, so you can’t blame her for not knowing the facts.
Palin said: “Well, speaking of last night, that was a tough speech to sit through and try to stomach because the president is so off base in his ideas in how it is he believes government is going to create jobs. Obviously, government growth won’t create any jobs. It’s the private sector that can create the jobs. His theme last night in the State of the Union was the WTF, you know, “Winning the Future,” and I thought OK, that acronym, spot on. There were a lot of WTF moments throughout that speech.”
Sarah Palin seems to be confused about a lot of things and it is impossible to take her seriously. What does it say about America that a woman, who is so incredibly under-qualified for a political job, is spewing crap each and every day about our country? What the f&%$ Sarah? When are you going to start acting like a grown up, and not a mean girl on the playground? You have no respect for this country, or for your President.
Sarah Palin is quickly becoming the Bethenny Frankel of the political world. Like Bethenny, she is attractive and oddly appealing, and also like Bethenny, she is a joke that we watch because we like to laugh at her, not with her. Bethenny has no talent, but she has a huge following of crazy fans. By crazy fans of course I mean the fans are actually crazy people, just like Sarah’s.
Maybe Sarah and Bethenny should have a reality show together. It can be called “Bethenny and Sarah Have a Show – WTF!” I for one would totally watch it. Sarah can give Bethenny advice on how to prevent her new baby girl from being an unwed teen mother, and Bethenny can teach Sarah how to make millions by saying stupid things that make no sense. Epic win.
Bethenny Frankel is starting up another season of her show and blogging about it will be fun, regardless of how many of her fans lose their minds while trying to defend a complete stranger who they pretend to be friends with in their sad and lonely lives in front of the television. I wonder how many of Bethenny’s fans support Palin. Those same people will think this blog was written by Jill Zarin!
If Sarah Palin wants us to take her seriously, she needs to start acting seriously. Either you’re in or you’re out Mrs. Palin. If you throw your hat in the race, I will listen. Until then, just stop talking. I doubt you can pull it off but I will wait, sit back, take it all in, and keep the faith.

I am not ashamed to say that at 44, I not only watch Jersey Shore, I love it. I don’t know what it is that is so appealing, but they are completely entertaining. I have become invested in them and actually wish them well. I think Jenny and Snooki are hilarious, and inherently good people. I look forward to their own show, which is currently filming in NYC.
Deena, the new girl, is sweet, Ronnie and Sammi are painful to watch, Vinny and Pauly D are living a life that sadly my 15 year old and his friends think is awesome. Then you have the Situation who may be the sweetest most disgusting 30 something year old man in America. This guy is creepy, trying to recapture his youth, and a pervert. That said, he’s also harmless.
The next season of The Jersey Shore will be shot in Italy and all hell is breaking loose. Italian American groups are up in arms they are coming, but I think it’s awesome. I don’t know if any of the cast speak Italian, but it promises to be an entertaining romp through Italy and I think it will be great. Jersey Shore is my guilty pleasure.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills had the first part of its reunion last night and it was interesting. I like these women because I feel like they are the most authentic of all the groups, but last night was sad. I had no idea that Taylor had a lip implant. She is too pretty to have ruined her face like that. She is also a complete bitch, mean spirited and not pleasant.
It could be from a lack of sex since her husband is possibly the most unappealing sour puss on television. Lisa was funny and fabulous. Kyle was quiet and stewing for an explosion, Adrienne simply has nothing of interest to say, Kim was drunk, and Camille was fascinating. I feel bad Camille because I believe she was portrayed in a bad light to a certain degree.
Regardless of what you think about her as one of the housewives, she got screwed over by her husband. Not only did he screw her over, but he plotted and did it in a public way that ensured her humiliation. She will get over $50 million for her trouble so she can’t really complain. In the end her marriage ended and that is sad regardless of how much money is involved.
I am back on board with American Idol after a couple of years of thinking it was lame. Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez have saved this show from itself, and it’s fun to watch. The thing is, they are milking every single sob story and I find myself, even just through the audition process, pulling for people based on their stories, not their talent and that’s a shame.
The guy with the girlfriend in the wheelchair after the car accident, the girl who works as a janitor at the stadium, the 15 year old chubby kid, the red headed kid who is bullied by everyone, and the hillbilly whose parents have fostered over 700 special need kids, are all people that I want to win and while I remember all their stories, could not tell you if they can sing.
I love this show. I even love Ryan and that is weird because he’s so annoying. I’m sure he will be irritating when the show goes live, but for now he is charming, funny and entertaining. I’m hooked, and will watch till the bitter end. They have managed to make this show fresh and that is awesome. American Idol is back and better than ever, so who cares if anyone can sing.
As I write this I am watching the Kardashian sisters, Kim and Kourtney, on the Piers Morgan show. Really? Who are these girls and why are they worth $100 million dollars? They are beautiful to be sure, but there is really no talent here. They are simply pretty. Their voices are high pitched and whiney, and they are not particularly articulate, but yet they are famous.
Good for them. If they can parlay squat into something huge, then bravo. I wish them well and begrudge them nothing. I just wish someone could explain to me why they are famous, why they are rich, and why we care. It’s fascinating they so popular and wealthy, and crazy that Ryan Seacrest is the mastermind making millions for putting them on television.
When asked who she idolized, Kim named Elizabeth Taylor, Ava Gardner and Sophia Loren. Don’t get it. She names 3 gorgeous and talented women but did not comment on why, so one can assume that the list is based on beauty since Kim is not an actress. She idolizes beautiful women, which is kind of sad but explains a little about what we are dealing with.
These girls are not educated or particularly smart, but they are brilliant at marketing themselves and becoming famous for absolutely no reason. In the end what separates the people of Jersey Shore from the Kardashians? Nothing. They are all living the American dream which is nice and at the same time kind of gross. God bless them for figuring out how to do it.
I watch them, find them entertaining, and am helping propel them to fame and fortune so I have nobody to blame but myself. Go figure. If nothing else I love them for keeping me entertained long enough to not have to think about Sarah Palin and her “WTF” speech. Yes people, there is another Palin blog coming, so pour a drink, settle in, and keep the faith.

How many times have you been sitting around, paying bills, complaining about the cost of gas, coveting a pair of Louboutin shoes, eyeing a new car, or wishing you didn’t have to go work, when you thought to yourself, “I wish I had a million dollars?” I’ve done it before. In fact, if I had a dollar for every time I have wished for a million dollars, I would have a million dollars.
Craig Rowin is a 27 year old comedian, living in New York City, who did what we all think about. He posted a plea on YouTube for a millionaire to give him a million dollars. He shot a video and simply asked for the money. Brilliant in its simplicity, it’s a great video. He states he has no specific use for the money, he just wants a million dollars, and hopes someone gives it to him.
This kid is a genius. It’s a funny video, he is charming, has a great delivery, and clearly states he has no clue what he will do with the money. No promises of saving the world, or giving part of it to charity, he just wants it, and will figure out later what he to do with it. Brilliant. Maybe be can use part of it to get his eyebrows waxed.
The best part of the story is that it appears his video worked. Some guy named “Benjamin” contacted Rowin, and told him he would give him a million dollars. Just like that, this kid is going to be a millionaire. Outstanding. Rowin says on February 2nd, in New York City, at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, “Benjamin” is going to give him a million bucks.
Could this be true or just a ploy to get famous? Nobody knew who he was before the video, yet here he is, becoming an Internet sensation because of his chutzpah. This funny Jewish kid may have hit the jackpot by doing what everyone thinks about. He has his 15 minutes of fame and the bonus is that he’s really talented so with or without Benjamin, he’s on his way to a million.
Bravo Mr. Rowin. You have caught our attention and that is a great thing. You have inspired me to gather up my chutzpah and start asking for stuff that I want. Let’s start with George Clooney. If you are George Clooney, know George Clooney, or can get to George Clooney, tell him I love him and would like to have diner with him. I love you George.
His girlfriend can come. I’ll being my son as my date. Its not about a creepy fan situation like in Misery, it’s more of a enjoy your company, be near you, lean in and smell your hair when you are not looking, follow you to the restroom and wait for you kind of thing. Not creepy, just a girl, hanging out with a guy, who’s hanging out with his girl. Easy, breezy not at all weird.
In addition to my date with George, I would like a new car. Nothing fancy, just something new, that is all mine, and has no payment. I’m thinking I want a Honda CRV. Odd choice I guess if you are asking for something and can have anything, but that‘s my choice. And to be clear, I don’t want to go get it and have to talk to a douchelord car salesman, just bring me my new car.
Finally, I’m thinking I want some plastic surgery. I’m not sure what I would do, but it just seems to me it’s a cool thing to ask for. A little nip and tuck of this or that would be a great thing. Maybe it’s my fast approaching 45th birthday, or perhaps that I caught a glimpse of myself naked in the mirror this morning, but either way, plastic surgery is on my list so don’t judge.
I love a man with balls, and by balls of course I mean chutzpah, so I love you Craig Rowin. If I weren’t old enough to be your mother, I would totally ask you out, with or without the million dollars. By your mother of course I mean I would have had you as a teenager, but still it could be true, which is enough to stop me from asking you out, but I totally think you’re cute.
I hope Craig gets his million bucks, gets his eyebrows waxed, meets a great Jewish girl who is super funny, lives happily ever after with a television show, book deal, booking on Conan and his chutzpah as big and fabulous as it is now. As for George, my new car and nip and tuck, I’m hanging onto the dream, adjusting to the size of my new balls, and keeping the faith.
***UPDATE: IT WAS A HOAX. NO MILLION DOLLARS. BENJAMIN WAS AN ACTOR. EPIC FAIL.

My son called from school and asked if I was sitting down because he needed to tell me something. My heart started racing, I felt sick to my stomach, and thought I might cry. I started screaming, “Are you ok? What’s happening? Hang up and call the police. Do it now!!!!!” He then told me Oprah Winfrey was his sister. How did the story reach school?
Monday’s Oprah show had me crying from start to finish. It was an amazing story and had I heard it anywhere else, from anyone other than Oprah, I would not have believed it. That her sister who passed away was named Patricia, and then the long lost sister was independently called Patricia, freaked me out. I loved this show, loved Patricia, and loved Oprah.
Oprah has done many of these shows with other people, so for it to be about her was fascinating, and she handled herself beautifully. She’s always been great with families in crisis. I wonder if she is trying to get an interview with Todd Palin in light of the possible scandal surrounding him. He may have cheated on his wife, with a woman who runs a whorehouse.
What is it with cheating? I have been cheated on and it’s brutal. It is an ego crushing heartache that is near impossible to overcome. As women, there is a moment when you are with a man, naked, and he looks at you as if you are the only woman on the planet. Whether it’s true or not, you feel a love that is found deep at the core of who you are.
Even if you are a whore, I imagine there is a moment, when you are with a man, and he looks at you, where it could be a feeling that for a second, he loves you too. Imagine how a wife feels, when you look at a whore the same way you look at her. It’s painful. If it’s true, Todd Palin slept with a whore, which is horrible. Still, he’s a better man that John Edwards ever was.
Sleeping with a whore is about sex. Having a relationship with the whore, like John Edwards did with Rielle Hunter, is a different kind of douchelord. John Edwards is a low life. That he screwed his wife over, by screwing a whore, is unforgiveable. His wife was dying, he knew she was dying, and still he decided that his whore was more important than Elizabeth’s dignity.
Why are these men so stupid and hurtful? Steve Harvey is another perfect example of a man you think is great, but turns out to be a putz. Harvey’s ex-wife of 15 years, posted 3 videos on YouTube this past weekend, telling everyone about their marriage, saying Harvey allegedly had affairs during most of their marriage, then divorced her and married his mistress.
Steve Harvey, meet John Edwards. Maybe you are long lost brothers. You should announce it on Oprah! We will never know the real stories behind these marriages, but what we do know for sure, is that until men start respecting the mothers of their children, there is no hope for them. Karma is a bitch gentlemen, and so are the whores you are sleeping with.
Speaking of whores, it is impossible to write about The Bachelor and not be mean. There is a fine line between poking fun, and flat out being mean. In my attempts to write about the show this week, the line was blurred, and it was more mean that mocking, so I bailed on the blog. I will simply say: I’m watching, I’m loving it, and I will try again next week to write about it but not be mean.
Brad is still the most boring of Bachelors, but he is super sweet and watching him begs the question, are all men pigs in the end? I watched Rudy Giuliani on Piers Morgan tonight. I think Rudy is a hero and a good guy. I then remembered that he cheated on his wife, and is now married to the woman he cheated with. Even the heroes have a touch of schmuck.
It’s not just men who are pigs. I get that it’s a two way street and women are pigs too, but there are a lot of male pigs to talk about today. Love is tricky, hearts are sensitive, and having a man’s child should mean something. At the end of the day, even whores are just girls, trying to find love. It will never make sense, so all we can do is hope for the best, and keep the faith.

On Sunday afternoon, when I went to put gas in my car, there was a couple fighting at the Shell station. She was crying, he was yelling, it was very sad. She is sitting in the car, he is pumping gas, screaming at her that she is a crazy, he is done with her, and if she says one more word she can walk home. Douchelord.
There was a moment when I almost got in my car and drove off, but in the end I could not do it. I went to the woman, opened her door and asked if she needed a ride home. She assured me she was fine, thanked me for checking and said everything was okay. I squeezed her hand, wished her well, shut the door, and told the man to watch himself because people were watching.
I then got a little scared, realized I was all bravado, got in my car and left. I hope the woman is okay and that she sees being dumped by this douchelord as a blessing. I’m sure she loved him once, maybe still does, and that is sad. When loves leaves a relationship it’s hard. This week on Jersey Shore Snooki said that looking for love is worse than having a staph infection.
Amen Snooki. Speaking of love, many people have written to ask how Matt is doing. It’s been a rough few days of treatment, but he is tough, fighting a good fight, and holding his own. I will see him this week, have checked in on his mom, and all is well. I love him and we are collecting prayers so tuck one away for Matt and his family. Prayers are appreciated and needed.
I look forward to the day that Matt is healthy and cancer is a thing of the past. Health is so important and we take it for granted. Speaking of being healthy, Jack LaLanne passed away Sunday at the age of 97. I was always intrigued by Jack, and inspired by how healthy he was, even as a senior citizen. Rest in Peace Jack, and thank you for showing us what is possible.
It was an interesting weekend. I worked and rested. Met with friends and spent time alone. Went out for dinner, and cooked a great meal at home. Had a date, and enjoyed being single. I also got an email for a diehard Palin supporter telling me that I was un-American for my recent blogs about Mrs. Palin, and he is going to make it his mission in life to get me deported.
It was the best laugh I’ve had in a long time. I told Mrs. Palin to shut up, so he thinks I should be investigated for deportation? I am clearly a “terrorist” who trying to “undermine the future of the country”. Really?Good luck with that my friend. I’m sure Mrs. Palin’s got your back on this, and my getting the boot will ensure her being elected President of the United States.
To be clear, a pig will fly out of my tuchas, speaking Japanese, while making a sandwich, and playing piano, before Mrs. Palin is elected President of anything other than her local hockey club. Additionally, Mrs. Palin will give a speech, live, that makes sense, before I am deported, so we know that’s never going to happen. You’ve got to laugh at how ridiculous this all is.
The funniest part of all is that I kinda dig Sarah. She is a good old broad who would be fun to go shopping with. I liked her when I met her, but her “people” make it impossible to like her at all which is shame. Stop being so mean and so political Palinites. Relax a little, have a drink, and realize that while you support her, you are ruining it for her too.
I have a full week ahead with a kid to love and a life to live. I am going to be kind, laugh often, listen to my breathing, keep God close, and enjoy the blessings of my life. I am going to pray for a cure for cancer, keep the memory of my dad alive, and look forward to dancing with my son at his wedding one day. Life is good, God is good, and it’s all possible, so I’m keeping the faith.

Matthew Mezza, a 14 year old freshman at Santa Monica High School, died on Friday, January 14th. I did not know Matthew, but I love him with my entire heart and my condolences go out to his family and friends. My son turned 15 just says after Matthew’s passing and he is also a freshman. I cannot wrap my head around this loss.
This young man took his own life and it’s difficult to understand. I have been unsettles since reading of his passing. My son and I discussed Matthew and it was touching. We spoke of this boy as if we knew him because in a way we did. Matthew was at the same stage of life as my own boy, and that is powerful.
My son and I talked about life and death. Being a boy of 15 is hard. I can barely remember last week, so going back to when I was a teenager is near impossible. It’s also quite useless really, because the life that I lead at 14 and 15 is completely different from the one my son is living now. It was a different time with different struggles, concerns and dreams.
My boy and I had an honest talk about what he worries about, what he is excited about, what scares him, and the challenges of balancing school, friends, girls, and life. I learned a lot from our talk. I became a better mother today because of Matthew. His tragic death made me stop and take a minute to talk to my child in a deeper and more meaningful way.
My hopes are for kids who are struggling to find someone to talk to, that my son will always feel safe coming to me to discuss his struggles and emotions, that Matthew will rest in peace, that his family and friends know he has touched my heart, and that they are in my prayers. My hope is for my son to know I love him, and together we will keep the faith.

I love American Idol. I watch it, I vote, I think Ryan Seacrest is annoying, and I blog about it. Well I used to blog about it, until I got bored. The last couple of years have been painful to watch. Ellen, while fantastic, never belonged there, and Kara was not entertaining, and added no value.
I thought with Simon gone, so was I. I truly had no plans to watch but my son convinced me that we should watch the first show, just so we could see what all the buzz was about, and it would make us able to join in conversation about it in the morning should people be talking about it.
So we watched and boy was I surprised. New judges Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez were very entertaining and managed to take season ten and make it fresh. Then there was Randy. Poor Randy Jackson. As much as we loved him in the beginning, I am completely over him now.
I watched the last two seasons without Paula wishing she were there, yet for this season opener I did not miss her, or Simon. I can say, after just two hours of the new season, this show is great and would have been even better if they had not brought Randy back. He’s so annoying.
Ryan Seacrest rounds out the quartet and if you read my blog on a regular basis you know I don’t really understand the appeal Ryan. That was then, because now I find myself liking even Ryan. His voice felt familiar and comfortable and I thought, for the first time, that he belonged there.
Steven Tyler is insanely sexy for a man of his age, and even though he has gone a little overboard on his cosmetic surgery, he’s still yummy. He is also very, very, very entertaining. He is just what this show needed to start fresh. He was funny, sensitive, charming, and delicious.
Then we have Jennifer Lopez. This woman is so incredibly beautiful that it seems a little unfair. The color of her skin is perfection and I liked her. I liked her personality, how she looked, how she was worried about the feelings of the contestants, and it was like she always belonged there.
Some standouts: The chick from the Ivory Coast who sang Madonna broke my heart. She was horrible but so sweet and at the end when she said bye to Ryan I wanted to cry. The Snooki wannabe guidette from Jersey had a great voice, under a horrible outfit. She made it through.
16 year old Robbie Rosen who sang Yesterday, and was one of my favorites. I love this kid. Ashley Sullivan wants to be the Liza Minnelli of pop music and she was super awkward and super cute. Good voice and while she’s not really AI material, I’m glad they put her through.
Victoria from NC was sugary sweet and gave me a cavity. She should be competing for Miss America not American Idol. Melinda, whose parents won the Green Card Lottery from Kosovo, was good and her story made me cry. Yes. I cried watching American Idol. Twice.
Devvyn, the singing waitress was really good and made it though even they humiliated her by telling her she was a schlub and needed a make over. The kid from Japan, who loves Michael Jackson, will be back for the finale to sing a duet with Miley Cyrus and I can’t wait to see it.
The final singer of the night was 16 year old Travis from the Bronx. I love this kid, love his family, love his story, love it all. I cried from the moment we met him and I will be thinking about him between now and Hollywood week. This is a special kid and I want him to do well.
I loved this show. I loved Steven and Jennifer, and dare I say it, when Ryan got emotional at the end with Travis, I loved him too. It felt new and fresh and I think it’s going to be a great season. I will watch, vote, and for those whose American dream will come true, I shall keep the faith.

Sarah Palin finally came out and spoke beyond a message on Facebook. I’m not sure if it’s a case of better late than never, or too little too late, but she did it, and she needed to, so good for her. Sarah told FOX News that “Blood libel obviously means being falsely accused of having blood on your hands, and in this case that’s exactly what was going on.”
I think, and again, it’s only my opinion, she should not have used the term blood libel in her remarks. I won’t change my mind. I now believe that she meant no harm. I think it was said out of ignorance, which is sad. Mrs. Palin did not educate herself on the words, but I feel that the person who wrote the words for her, was being disrespectful, and knew it.
In a previous posting I wrote that Mrs. Palin needed to shut up. It was harsh, and some people were offended, but I’m not taking it back. It’s what I felt when I wrote it and we don’t get do overs once we put things out into the universe. I was annoyed that she waited so long to speak and when she did, what she said was stupid and offensive to Jews.
I think what Sarah Palin needs is a Jew in her camp. An educated, and historically aware Jew. One that knows about not only biblical history, but also the history of the United States of America. Who is helping her put together her speeches? Whoever that person is, needs to find a new job because they truly suck at this one. Her speechwriter is an idiot.
Love her or hate her, Sarah Palin is not going to stop talking and she is not going to go away. How great would it be if while she was here, she spoke in a way that did not offend, or make her look ridiculous? Her ideas for the country will still be scary, and not good for America, but if she could speak without offending or making us laugh at her, it would be helpful.
Going back to last year when I met Mrs. Palin, I will again say that I liked her. She was funny and sweet and we talked about kids, shoes, handbags and dating. She was charming and I felt like I was hanging out with a girlfriend. I could understand her appeal. If you separate her politics, then I imagine event those who hate her politically, might like her personally.
I’m never going to agree with her politically, or think her hunting is cool, or believe bashing a fish on the head is okay with God, but I would go shopping with her, borrow her boots, and have her over for dinner so we could talk about what it’s like to raise teenagers in a time where there are so many opportunities and landmines for young people.
I do not believe Mrs. Palin will ever be President of the United States. If I’m wrong and she manages to be elected, I will wish the country well and move to Canada. I do think that if she is seriously considering it, she needs to surround herself with people who are smarter than who she has now. If she wants us to take her seriously, she needs to get serious.
I’m of the belief that Mrs. Palin speaking on FOX News is too little too late. She has not apologized for anything, and I think that is a mistake. I do not take her politics seriously, but I take my fear of her very seriously. All that said, I would still have her over to my home for dinner. I’m sure it makes no sense to anyone and that’s okay. It’s about being decent.
Mrs. Palin needs to start talking to people who have the best interest of America in mind. People either love her or hate her and those people cannot help her. There are many who care more about the state of this country than we do about hating her, or loving her, and if she consulted with those people, it would be good for her and for America.
Just when I think Sarah Palin is the scariest part of American politics, along comes Robert Bentley, the Governor of Alabama. At his swearing in on Monday, Bentley said to the gathered crowd that if you have not accepted Jesus Christ as your savior, you are not his brother or sister. Really? If you live in Alabama, and are not a Christian, you’re screwed.
He went on to say, “Now I will have to say that, if we don’t have the same daddy, we’re not brothers and sisters. So anybody here today who has not accepted Jesus Christ as their savior, I’m telling you, you’re not my brother and you’re not my sister, and I want to be your brother.” It’s official, Sarah Palin is not the scariest or dumbest politician in America.
Robert Bentley is 67 and a retired dermatologist. He is a Sunday school teacher and deacon at Tuscaloosa’s First Baptist Church. He said he was the “Governor of all of Alabama — Democrat, Republican and independent, young and old, black and white, rich and poor.” If you don’t have Jesus in your heart however, he is apparently not your Governor.
There are about 10,000 Jews living in Alabama who now have no Governor. If any of those 10,000 Jews are politically minded, aware of the history of Jews and America, and looking for work, Sarah Palin might be hiring. Get your resumes together and pack for Alaska. People are funny. By funny of course I mean scary. All we can do is pray and focus on keeping the faith.
