[su_right_ad]Suffice it to say the Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has never been Bar Mitzvah’d. reports that Walker, the son of a Baptist preacher, courted Jewish donors last spring at the Republican Jewish Coalition spring meeting in Las Vegas. But unfortunately for Walker, all this newfound “common ground with the Jewish faith” is dredging up old memories of a time when he wasn’t so familiar with the commonalities of monotheistic religions.

One Wisconsin Now dug up an undated letter that Walker sent in response to chairman Franklyn Gimbel’s request that he display a menorah during the holiday season:

Walker told Gimbel his office would be happy to display a menorah celebrating “The Eight Days of Chanukah” at the Milwaukee County Courthouse, and asked Gimbel to have a representative from Lubavitch of Wisconsin contact Walker’s secretary, Dorothy Moore, to set it up.

The letter is signed, “Thank you again and Molotov.”

    That’s nothing I’m sure Stalin was very suspicious of his Foreign Minister Vyacheslav Mazel Tov.

    To quote the eminent philosopher Bugs Bunny, what an ultra maroon.

      Unfortunately, no video, but this is from “Almost Famous”: “[on meeting Stillwater] Russell. Jeff. Ed. Larry. I really love your band. I think the song “Fever Dog” is a big step forward for you guys. I think you guys producing it yourselves, instead of Glyn Johns, was the right thing to do. And the guitar sound… is incindiary. Incendiary. Way to go.

      [He turns to leave. The band members regard one another for a moment]

      Russell Hammond: Well, don’t stop there!

      Jeff Bebe: Yeah, come back here! I’m incendiary, too, man!”

    Scott, you’re faking it. Do a little research first.

    I think he probably meant to say ‘chutzpah’?

    but then to him, it makes sense that lighting a candle
    is the same thing as chunking a bottle of petro with a flaming rag attached?
    hard to say about WHITE christian males in America.
    some have even been known to shoot their wife’s daughter in the back of the head before having sex with their cooling body.
    weird bunch – and violent!

    Dear Mr. Scott:
    I accept your very kind invitation.
    Thank you and here’s wishing you many enhanced interrogations.
    Mr. Gimbel.
