A Jewish donkey?


Meet Mordecai, the donkey recently selected by the Democratic National Committee to be the official mascot of its convention in Denver this summer…

Here’s some background from the DNCC’s Web site:

Ten children who had entered their donkeys in the Democratic National Convention mascot contest paraded their animals before the entire arena of thousands plus some VIP judges, including Sen. Ken Salazar, former Colorado Governor Roy Romer and DNCC CEO Leah Daughtry. Of the ten donkeys entered in the contest, a donkey named Mordecai, lead by its 10-year-old handler Sophie Herzog, was declared the winner.
