    This must be true. Nobody could have made it up.

    Better these idiots should embrace “Kabbalah” than global warming, I suppose.

      Does this offend you as a Jew, or as a fan of music?

    2. Jonathan Says:

      It doesn’t offend me, it’s just silly. These people adopt trappings of this or that belief set, never understanding the ideas, purely as a fashionable pose. This year it’s the ruffled mini and faux-Kabbalah; next year it’ll be umbrella hats and bowdlerized Suffism. It’s the same with the politics. One year it’s “anti-sweatshop,” the next year it’s concern about ozone, etc., etc. It’s only a problem when they get involved in politics, because then they can do real damage. I’d just as soon they stuck with the mystical bullshit, which is at least amusing to read about.

      Think I should cease production on the new “Kabbalahists For Bush” T-shirt?

    4. Jonathan Says:

      That’s a very difficult question. If you cease production, who will fill the rest of my order for 8 dozen shirts?

      Simple minds. That’s why they’re all liberals I guess…

    6. Robert Schwartz Says:

      Rabbi? What part of the phrase “shonda fur den goyim” don’t you understand?

    7. Jonathan Says:

      I assume that the “rabbi” will be as legitimate as the rest of the deal. Maybe he’s the sort of new-age clergyman who changes affiliations as the needs of his clients change.

      Britney’s 15 minutes are dragging on too damn long, and you are NOT HELPING with this.
