I happen to like some of the other ideas better than his. In fact, I do not understand his idea.

G--

We know for a fact that Abe is a religious Jew. That means that he shares the same values and beliefs that you hold dear to your heart. You take a great risk by voting for the other candidates, as they may take the opportunity to use this press and publicity to speak negatively of Jews. I think that we must take this opportunity to allow Abe to represent us on the largest of stages, where we can be secure in knowing that he won't turn it into a spectacle that would leave Jews feeling alienated by the American community. If you feel that voting for someone else will better benefit American Jews, then go ahead of vote for them. But my vote is with Abe because I stand by him on and off the field.

Abe Sutton doesn't just represent himself or his family. Abe Sutton represents mamesh all of Klal Yisrael. Mistama, this isn't going to affect things tremendously. But nonetheless, it's incumbent upon all of us as Jews to help him achieve this tremendous honor. I don't think "coincidence" is in HaKadosh Baruch Hu's dictionary: everything is part of His plan. That said, I don't think it's a coincidence that this is going on during Chanukah, where the primary mitzvah is pirsum hanes. Here we have the opportunity to be mefarsem the nes that is the triumph of the Jewish people. Let's show the goyim how strong we are as a nation. Kol Yisroel arevim zeh bazeh!

Was that sarcastic, or are you guys just wacked? How the heck is that a kiddush Hashem? There is no value in a Super Bowl commercial. How does that bring about a good name to the Jewish people?

FYI, half of Hollywood was started by Jews, so whats new here?

Although it is sarcastic, you wouldn't believe how close it sounds like some of the stuff people write on Jewish blogs. Perhaps this is a time for a cheshbon hanefesh about your priorities, beliefs and opinions.

It's time for a cheshbon hanefesh about your priorities, beliefs and opinions - for those who would actually believe that it's a Kiddush Hashem to do this. It's a joke - chill out. Worry about yourself.
