CNN needs its own mikvah


I think last night’s Democratic debate marked some sort of important milestone in American cultural history – and, no, it wasn’t the sight of a woman and an African-American battling for the nomination. That’s old news.

The real story last night was the two CNN moderators – one is a convert to Judaism (Campbell Brown) and the other (John King) is in the process of becoming a Member of the Tribe. (Next, someone will write in to tell us that Univision’s Jorge Ramos is a marrano.)

For those keeping score, Brown replaced Paula Zahn, who never converted but is married to a Jewish man and raising the children as Jews.

What on earth is Wolf Blitzer putting in the water cooler over there?
