I know, I know. Two George Allen posts in one day is at least one too many. But I can't ignore the new revelation that -- gasp! -- George Allen is actually Jewish!
But wait a second -- how come Wikipedia knew that George Allen's mother was of Jewish ancestry before he did? Hell, even I knew about it last month.
Now he claims to "embrace and take great pride" in his Jewish ancestry?
As Justin pointed out, he was initially insulted that someone would possibly think he was Jewish.
Maybe that's because he doesn't like Jews. Or maybe he's just concerned that his Jewish ancestry might cost him a presidential bid.
Either way, it just means the same thing -- George Allen doesn't know his tuches from his kepele.*
*I'd use the yiddish word for "elbow," but I don't know it. And not like it really matters -- he's supposedly Sephardic anyway.
