(Ravi Joshi/Tablet Magazine)

Winner gets a free Nextbook Press book appropriate to his or her comment (provided he or she emails me at mtracy@tabletmag.com with his or her mailing address).

This week’s winner is Madeline McGuckin, who commented (on Facebook—yep, that counts too!), apropos Allison Hoffman’s profile of the man behind the group Jewish Americans for Sarah Palin, “WTH? Jews for Palin? That’s like Felons For Judge.” (Bonus points for passing up the chance at even an abbreviated curse word.)

She gets a copy of Adam Kirsch’s biography of Benjamin Disraeli, who in the 19th century somehow made being an archconservative a Semitic matter, joining a club that didn’t want him as a member, refashioning it, and arguably becoming the true godfather of Jewish conservatives (even though he joined the Christians, another club that didn’t want him as a member and that continued to see him—as he saw himself—as a Jew).
