Mitt Romney looks like a nice boy, sure. But isn't he supposed to be one of those Mormon people? You know them Mormons, always with the knocking on your door during breakfast. What kind of a person does that?
I'm sorry, but when it comes time to donate your money to a political campaign, you can't do better than entrusting it with a good Jewish girl with a good Jewish name like Michele Bachmann…
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is facing a new challenge: He's having trouble raising money from some Jewish donors who mistakenly believe one of his opponents, Michele Bachmann, is Jewish.
Some Jewish donors are telling fund-raisers for Romney, a Mormon, that while they like him, they'd rather open their wallets for the "Jewish candidate," who they don't realize is actually a Lutheran, The Post has learned.
What?! Michele Bachmann is a shiksa? But she looks just like that nice Linda Reinfeld from pottery class. You know the one, with the husband who drinks. Right, her. So, Michele Bachmann isn't Jewish? You don't say.
Now, with this latest hiccup among Jewish donors, some in Romney's camp have been wondering whether Bachmann and her allies are pushing the "Jewish" rumor to help their own fund-raising, sources said.
She has enjoyed strong popularity among Jewish voters and often talks about her stay on a kibbutz during the summer of 1974, when she was a teenager.
Bachmann also told an AIPAC gathering earlier this year that she and her family make sure each year to attend at least one Jewish-theme play or movie.
Oh, just so long as she goes to see Fiddler on the Roof once a year, that's good enough for me.
