A supporter of Virginia attorney general and gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli told a Jewish joke at a campaign rally today according to a dispatch in the Washington Post. It was a real belly grabber:

People brought yellow lawn chairs with the motto “Don’t tread on me,” and there was at least one tri-corner hat in the crowd. John Whitbeck, 10th District Republican Committee chairman, kicked off the festivities by telling a joke about how the head of the Jewish religion presented the pope with a long, elaborate document that the Jewish leader said was a bill for the last supper.

Whoever thinks there's a "head of the Jewish religion" hasn't been to Shabbos at my house. Thanks folks I'll be here all week.
