Jews Who Can’t Take a Joke

By now you’ve probably heard that Obama’s National Security Adviser, James Jones, told a Jewish merchant joke at a think tank.  The Anti-Defamation League weighed in — they weren’t such a fan — and James apologized.

Nobody seems to care that the joke was funny.  Poorly delivered, stretched out, lacking in detail — sure.  But funny.  And even depicting Jews as clever if financially opportunistic (which, you know, we are).

If Jones wasn’t an anti-Semite, maybe we just made him one.
