Description: Scott Sherman has taken it upon himself to compile a list of 50 Oy-vey inducing members of the tribe from politics, entertainment and white collar crime who make it tougher than it already is to be a Jew these days. Notables include:
Barbara Streisand: Mere presence convinces every untalented Jew they can become a star... and too much with the politicking! Who elected you?
Judge Judy: Who thought it was a good idea to give a Jewish grandmother a television show in which her opinions are legally binding? Releasing the wrath of bubbie onto the world is a cruel, cruel thing to do.
Eliot Spitzer: Will Mr. Spitzer s dalliances and indiscretions prevent Jews from pursuing law degrees? Of course not. We are, if anything, a litigious people.
Leonard Nimoy: A Jew playing a pointy-eared halfalien? Everybody thinks we re strange and foreign enough as it is!
Bernie Madoff: Where to begin?? Life is hard enough without having to be concerned that your esteemed brethren are really sleeper-schmucks lying in wait, biding their time for the perfect moment to completely ruin your life.
Laura Shlessinger: Referred to herself in a Los Angeles Times Magazine profile as a prophet. Let s be nice and call that a stretch.
