holzman_tweed: (Too young)
Yesterday was Yom Hashoah, the day when Israel remembers the Holocaust by shutting down for a few minutes as a siren is sounded.   The names of the dead are read out.

Republican presidential hopeful Tommy Thompson could not have possibly picked a worse day to tell an audience of Jews how much he admires us for having "making money" be a part of our culture.  If you need me to explain why, you're not sufficiently educated to have an adult conversation on matters of import: use the google and come back when you're culturally literate.  Suffice it to say that it's no more a compliment than admiring the typesetting job on The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, or thinking we came up with a particularly tasty cocktail mix to really perk up babies blood.

This day should mark the end of Thompson's campaign, as he's demonstrated irrefutably he does not know enough about the history of the nation or the people who live in it to be fit to be President.
