This Morning it was possibly reported on Rachel Maddow's blog that photos of a cocktail party thrown by, billionaire casino magnate, Sheldon Adelson after the annual CPAC convention are circulating on the internet. Among the twenty-plus photos are images purportedly showing Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich, greeting guests, wearing Tefillin and Tallit.
The photos reportedly surfaced when Lev Ashkenazi, a Talmudic blogger, accidentally came upon them while persuing research on a new project -- " Zionism and Kabbalah in the writings of Philip K. Dick". Apparently when Mr. Ashkenazi accidentally googled, only, Mr. Dick's last name -- a mention of the photos appeared. Mr. Ashkenazi immediately began posting the photos on his website.
Mr. Ashkenazi is reported to have been greatly disturbed by, "...Gingrich, glad handing wealthy partygoers, wearing, what appeared to be, a poorly made pig skin yarmulke and garish Tallit...Mr. Santorum noshing on brisket...Tefillin covering one eye...a pretentious golden crucifix, artlessly, drooping in potato salad.
However, Mr. Ashkenazi is reported to have expressed even greater outrage over a possible photo of Mr. Gingrich and, ex-Congressman, Dick Armey. In the photo Gingrich appears to be holding the hand of an attractive, possibly semitic, young woman who is feeding a blintz to Mr. Armey. Mr. Ashkenazi believes the woman to be his sister's Israeli daughter-in-law.
Among the photos was also , supposedly, a photo of a very tall man (possibly Bill O'Reilly) in deep conversation with the President Of Fox News, Roger Ailes -- the photo is reported to show the two men arguing over plates heaped with honey glazed ham and gefilte fish. In a subsequent photo it is reported that Mr. O'Reilly appeared to be feeding a morsel of gefilte fish to Mr. Ailes.
According to someone who has read Rachel Maddow's entire blog, there are also photos of Ralph Reed wearing a Tuxedo with a t-shirt that appeared to contain a tasteless graphic representation of the Baal Shem Tov engrossed in conversation with Paul Wolfowitz.
The final photo to be posted was of David Barton, the Chancellor of Beck University, sporting a button on his lapel that read, "Thomas Jefferson Was A Jew", patting, guitarist, Ted Nugent on the backside as he was very athletically blowing a shofar."*
Mr. Ashkenazi, a native of New Orleans, is reported to have commented that, " This whole affair appears to reek of political lagniappe and Megiddo envy."
Mr. Ashkenazi is the blogger that uncovered the attempt, in 2010, by a group founded by Fox News' Mike Huckabee to pay the estate of the writer, John Updike, to give its imprimatur to a posthumous, possibly apocryphal, novel, " Rabbit Is Rich In Tel Aviv."
*Mr. Beck could not be reached for comment, however he was once reported to have been overheard to say outside a Salt Lake City bar, "The Jews may have killed Jesus but I'd schtoop Rachel Weisz."
P.s. It has come to my attention that an additional photo has possibly surfaced of Mitt Romney wearing knee-high doe skin moccasins and an oversized, chambray, yarmulke decorated with eagle feathers. Mr. Romney appears to be sharing pemmican and caviar dip (rumored to have been made by his wife) with a gentleman that looks like the Hasidic rapper, Matisyahu. However a source close to a friend of Rachel Maddow believes the Hasidic gentleman to actually be Senator Joe Leiberman in disguise.
The source is possibly reported to have said," The black payot didn't match his red-grey eyebrows and Matisyahu would never wear a star of david engraved on a fifty caliber cartridge."
