About Kesher Talk

  • "Kesher" means "connection" in Hebrew. The banner image is the mosaic floor of a 6th c. synagogue in Jericho, showing a menorah flanked by a shofar and lulav; the inscription reads "Shalom Al Yisrael." (This synagogue was destroyed by Arab vandals a few years ago. The condition of the mosaic floor is unknown.)

Campaign humor

I can't face more fact-checking right now. (You can find links to fanatical fact-check sites here.) But I could use some funnies.

No matter your position, John Kerry agrees with you! An audio parody ad.

Regular Guys for Bush has a hard-hitting video ad raising pertinent questions about John Kerry's approach to cheesesteak.

Where's the BUSH PUPPET????

Here's a parody of the whole 2004 presidential debate genre.

SCHIEFFER: You're both looking quite lovely this evening. Have I mentioned that? With that in mind, and excuse me as I loosen my belt here, do you believe homosexuality is a choice?

BUSH: I don't know, Bob. I don't know anything.

KERRY: Dick Cheney's daughter knows. She knows her father is an evil, evil man.

SCHIEFFER: Okay, now that we've started the section of the debate where we'll be pandering to the religious nuts, what do you think about abortion?

BUSH: I wish I'd been aborted, Bob. Because being President is hard. It's hard work. Hard. I work on Tuesdays. Every Tuesday. It's terrible. It's hard. Oh, so hard.

KERRY: Oh, so we're parodying the other debates now? Well, I remember that first World Trade Center bombing, in 1993, and then the other one, in 2001, what's that, 2, 3, 28 years later?

BUSH: Maybe you should look it up on the Internets.

KERRY: Or I'll just ask my wife's OG-BMW.

BUSH: Good idea. Should we get back to the debate at hand after that fun little interlude?

KERRY: Yes, we shall. I grew up a Catholic. I was an altar boy. I was touched by no fewer than fourteen priests. But I don't think I can tell people not to have abortions, not because I think they're good, but because I want to win this election, and my consultants insist this one is non-negotiable.

Beverage warning on this one.

This one's pretty funny too.

Another debate parody.

QandO live-fisks the debate.

This one's for all you Monty Python fans:

Senator Kerry: Oh, what is my plan?
Moderator: Yes.
Senator Kerry: Oh what is my plan that it is. Well Chris you may well ask me what is my plan.
Moderator: I am asking.
Senator Kerry: Good for you. My word yes. Well Chris, what is it that it is - this plan of mine. Well, this is what it is - my plan that I have, that is to say, which is mine, is mine. . . .
Football Fans for Truth on an important campaign issue.


Kerry's nuanced terrorist warning color codes.

If you are still feeling enraged and frustrated after having a good laugh, you can slap the candidate here.
