Oy vey ist mir! Ted Cruz's Excellent Adventure at the Bupkes Bakery

Bupkes Bakery -- the Bagel Drive

The public has enjoyed Bupkes baked goods for generations — rye breads, rolls, bagels, strudel, rugelah, and particularly our special buttery hamentashen. Poppy seed, apricot, and prune. Baking is what the Bupkes family does. Even in the old country. In fact, Bupkes have been baking in Bialystok for as long as the town has kept records! According to legend, it was a Bupkes who suggested let’s skip the leavening just this once and get our tuchuses out of Egypt already. Bupkeses are not dawdlers!

Meanwhile, it would seem that in order to keep up the ancient American tradition of pandering for the Jewish vote once every four to eight years, Ted Cruz dropped by to help make the matzoh for Passover, 2016 (April 22 - April 30). And,oy, such a matzoh he made already!

I've enjoyed your American Digest for some time and have always found it to be enlightening, entertaining and fun. I also thought that you were a thoughtful, intelligent man. I don't like to be wrong about people but, obviously, sometimes I am. Adios, amigo.

I don't get it. It's no secret politicians pander to different groups. Is it offensive to notice? We used to be able to laugh at ethnic differences. Here is just one example, not the best but fairly typical of the time. When did we become such a bunch of sensitive susies? It hasn't made us any kinder if you go by the internet, just whinier, more divided and censorious and afraid of speaking truthfully

Sorry ghostsniper but it takes a special kind of tiny mindedness to spend much time with the dwindling number of reactionaries at American Digest.

Not everyone is cut out for it.

Bless their hearts (Kathryn & Pricilla). Hope they find their safe space soon.
