How Michele Bachmann Spent Yom Kippur
Poor Michele Bachmann. She just wanted to do some outreach for Yom Kippur. And what better place to do it than a Conservative synagogue? That means a synagogue for Jewish Tea Party Republicans, right? That’s correct, isn’t it? Baruch atah adonai Obama is a terrorist, or something like that?
And so Michele swung by the Conservative Anshe Emet Synagogue in Chicago. Sounds pretty Republican to us!! Except it’s not. Anshe Emet is located right in the middle of Chicago’s LGBT neighborhood (Boystown), and it bills itself as an ‘egalitarian’ synagogue, and just for good measure, it’s across the street from a Whole Foods and the LGBT community center. Ruh roh.
