Richard Williamson and John Bolton are Jewish! Recent converts, apparently. [Updated.]

Are Richard Williamson and John Bolton—two of Romney’s three main foreign-policy advisors, and reportedly the two most influential—Jewish?  Really?

Or are they simply under the influence of Dan Senor and other manipulative neocon Jews?  Sorta like Dick Cheney and Don Rumsfeld were.

Oh, please.


WARNING: Every word of the above post except the last two is said facetiously.

But this is not: The Dylan Byers Politico post that I link to has this quote:

“[The] weirdest part of the anti-semitic tropes on the [Maureen] Dowd column is how lazy they are,” Max Fisher, an editor at The Atlantic who is leaving to launch a foreign policy blog at the Washington Post, tweeted.

Apparently, mimicking Mitt Romney’s pot-calling-the-kettle-black habit has become quite the thing this season among conservatives.  Or maybe Fisher did investigate and has learned that Williamson and Bolton really haveconverted to Judaism.

Oh, and by the way: I’m Jewish.  Happy new year.


UPDATE: Much to my surprise, a link to this post appears on the Jewish American Heritage Month website, at
