What if the Jews rose to power and no one noticed?

Look out! They’re lean! They’re mean! They’re matzah-ball soup-eating machines! According to the Cleveland Jewish News, the Semites are taking over Ohio government. From Lt. Governor Lee Fisher and Attorney General Marc Dann, to schools chief Susan Tave Zelman, the paper notes that Members of the Tribe are populating the higher reaches of state government in increasing numbers. The News put 13 of their faces on the front page last week, along with the ominous warning that their rise to power could make “KKK leaders plotz.” But the bigger news seems to be that gentiles – especially the weird Cincinnati variety -- aren’t freaking out. “To me the most remarkable thing is not the number of Jewish officeholders, but the fact that it has hardly caused any comment,” John Green, a political scientist at the University of Akron, is quoted as saying. “It is rather like the fact that a majority of the U.S. Supreme Court is Catholic.” – Lisa Rab
