Super-bigot Archie is explaining to Edith (as if he really knew) how Jewish couples give their sons very traditional names that can be shortened cleverly into nonethnic sounding nicknames "like SOL Nelson or IZZY Watson," Archie says. Without missing a beat, Meathead Mike adds, "... ABE Lincoln."

Edith looks desperately puzzled and exclaims, "I didn't know Lincoln was Jewish!" Archie explodes, and the audience roars.

Update: Looks like one of our eagle-eyed fellows deleted the comment this was intended to critique.

I can't go there anymore.

People choose who to vote for based on really dumb reasons, or at least the reasons they give are exceedingly dumb. I canvassed Florida in 2004 and met an old vet who wouldn't vote for Kerry because he refused to wear a flag pin on his lapel. I doubt that was the real reason, but just a convenient way to express his concern.

Xenophobia. He ain't one of us!
