• Comparing her people to the Chinese, Diane von Furstenberg suggests, “Try to think of governing a billion and a half Jews.” No thanks! [NYMag]

• Romney and Bibi sittin’ in a tree? [Ben Smith]

• Texas House Speaker Joe Straus, profiled by Michelle Goldberg, won re-election. [Arutz Sheva]

• If the current New Yorker caption contest cartoon doesn’t deserve a Jewish punchline, I don’t know what does. [The New Yorker]
