Jews and Italians May Basically Be the Same
… but Yiddish is still Yiddish, Rep. Pelosi!
At the end of her first segment on The Daily Show last night, Jon Stewart tells Rep. Nancy Pelosi, former Speaker of the House, “Purely as an outside observer, it seems fakarkte to me, and that’s … Jewish, but … alright.” To which Pelosi responds, “I thought that was Italian! Is that Jewish?”
Dude. “Fakarkte,” corruption of verkakte. You represent a tony part of San Francisco; your father was mayor of Baltimore. Come on.
Do we think this is as bad as Rep. Michelle Bachmann’s mangling of “chutzpah”?
