The Real Conservative Jew

Poor David Bernstein. He keeps forgetting that even amongst "Conservative Jews" he's still likely to be the only actual Conservative. For better or for worse, Jewish law places a heavy emphasis on care for the poor and underprivileged, and is not the slightest bit statephobic--part of which makes the religion so overwhelmingly liberal. The grogger to Hilary Clinton was a nice riposte (though I have to ask again, why the Conservative anathema to a relatively hawkish, centrist Senator?). But alas, you are still wanderers in an unholy land (or from my perspective, deniers of the True Path to political enlightment).

Hope everyone had a happy Purim, though if you did you're probably too drunk to read this post. Back to Carleton on the 27th (can't hardly wait)!
