Ashley Biden does the Horah

One of the great bans on reporting, alas because of Jewish insecurity, is the extent to which Jewishness is now cool, sought-after. This is from JTA‘s Ron Kampeas:

Ashley Biden, the vice president’s daughter, married Howard Krein in Wilmington in an interfaith ceremony.

There was a rabbi and a priest, but it takes a White House-released photo to give us a hint of the culture of interfaith: Joe Biden dancing with Ashley in a hora.

We’re peers. Chelsea Clinton married a Jewish guy. John King converted to Judaism to marry reporter Dana Bash. Campbell Brown is said to have converted to marry Dan Senor. I believe people want to marry Jews because we’re successful (and we are overall the wealthiest group in the U.S. by religion). People want to get ahead, people want to get in with the in crowd. Of the moderators of the Republican debates this year, most were Jewish media guys.

But there’s a lot of denial of this, because of the fear that pointing out the obvious about our social position would bring about pogroms. I don’t buy it. It’s news. This is all about the new philo-semitism. When I was a kid my dad used to say Hank Greenberg married Gimbel’s daughter! (the slugger and the retail princess). The vice president’s daughter is a step up from that…

Maybe they just like each other? It really can be that simple.

“I believe people want to marry Jews because we’re successful (and we are overall the wealthiest group in the U.S. by religion). People want to get ahead, people want to get in with the in crowd. Of the moderators of the Republican debates this year, most were Jewish media guys.”

Oy Ve!! Maybe the Biden girl loves the guy, ever thought of that? Its not likes hes a scientologist or something……

Nothing wrong with Jews marrying shiksas or goyim, but it’s the Zionist part that is troublesome. My daughter married a pretty nice Jewish man who does not endorse the Zionist manifesto and, like many of his generation is not a true believer in its cause.

Uh oh! Just remembered: Biden once said: “I am a Zionist”!

“I believe people want to marry Jews because we’re successful (and we are overall the wealthiest group in the U.S. by religion).”

Love to be a fly on the wall when your wife reads that line…

You gotta post her response (if you’re not in a full body cast). Please. I’m on my knees begging….

Maybe we’re just nice guys with a good sense of humor?
