FR Exclusive! The Chanukah Song (for Republicans)
Dec. 9, 2001 | Cinnamon Girl

Posted on 12/09/2001 4:54:48 PM PST by Cinnamon Girl

(You all know Adam Sandler's Chanukah Song. Well, here's another version...)

CHANUKAH SONG

Put on your yarmulke, here comes Chanukah,
So much fun-ikah to celebrate Chanukah,

When you feel like the only Jew in the GOP,
Here’s a list of people who are Jewish, just like you and me.

Mayor Norm Coleman lights the menorah,
He makes Minnesota liberals so, so sore-ah.

White House Press Secretary, Ari Fleischer,
Hopes Helen Thomas takes a vacation to make Chanukah even nice-sher.

Guess who spins the dreidel to the Chanukah hits,
Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz.

Dennis Prager’s Jewish, Michael Medved is, too,
Put them on Politically Incorrect and the liberals turn to goo.

You don’t need to listen to Joe Lieberman whine,
‘Cause you can get some chocolate gelt from Republican Ben Stein.

Hillary Clinton, not a Jew,
(let's just leave it at that.)

We’ve got Dr. Laura, and Charles Krauthammer,
Horowitz and Jacoby hope Clinton gets put in the slammer.

So put on your yarmulke, it’s time for Chanukah
Don’t forget your harmonica, it’s time to celebrate Chanukah

So drink your gin and tonica, but skip the marijuanica (we’re not Libertarians!)
And have a happy, happy, happy, happy Chanukah!

Oh, it's adorable. Thanks and Happy Chanukah, Hannukah, Chanuka, Hanuka, etc. It's all a transliteration of Hebrew anyway so the English spelling doesn't matter.

Thanks for the link. I think the Dems are reading Jewish voters all wrong. In the blue zones especially, Jews are sending their kids to private schools, so the more the GOP makes the case that public schools are a disaster and a money pit, the less the social responsibility guilt trip is going to fly. Also, the Dems willingness to give platforms to party buffoons like Al Sharpton and rejoice in race baiting, the more they alienate the younger generations that don't buy into it.

Twas the night before Chanukah, boichiks and maidels
Not a sound could be heard, not even the dreidels
The menorah was set by the chimney alight
In the kitchen, the Bubbie was hopping a bite
Salami, Pastrami, a glaisele tay
And zoyere pickles mit bagels -- Oy vay!
Gezint and geschmock the kinderlach felt
While dreaming of taiglach and Chanukah gelt
The alarm clock was sitting, a kloppin' and tickin'
And Bubbie was carving a shtickele chicken
A tummel arose, like the wildest k'duchas
Santa had fallen right on his tuchas!
I put on my slippers, ains, tzvay, drei
While Bubbie was eating herring on rye
I grabbed for my bathrobe and buttoned my gottkes
And Bubbie was just devouring the latkes
To the window I ran, and to my surprise
A little red yarmulka greeted my eyes.
When he got to the door and saw the menorah
"Yiddishe kinder," he cried, "Kenahorah!"
I thought I was in a Goyishe hoise!
As long as I'm here, I'll leave a few toys."
"Come into the kitchen, I'll get you a dish
Mit a gupel, a leffel, and a shtickele fish."
With smacks of delight he started his fressen
Chopped liver, knaidlach, and kreplach gegessen
Along with his meal he had a few schnapps
When it came to eating, this boy sure was tops
He asked for some knishes with pepper and salt
But they were so hot he yelled out "Gevalt!"
He loosened his hoysen and ran from the tish
"Your koshereh meals are simply delish!"
As he went through the door he said "See y'all later
I'll be back next Pesach in time for the seder!"
So, hutzmir and zeitzmir and "Bleibtz mir gezint"
He called out cheerily into the wind.
More rapid than eagles, his prancers they came
As he whistled and shouted and called them by name
"Come, Izzie, now Moishe, now Yossel and Sammy!
On Oyving, and Maxie, and Hymie and Manny!"
He gave a geshrai, as he drove out of sight
"A gut yontiff to all, and to all a good night!"

Chanukah celebrates the victory of a small band of Jews (the Chashmonaim) over the Greeks who were ruling over Israel and sought to assimilate the Jews. When the Chashmonaim (sons of the High Priest) entered the Holy Temple (which had been defiled by the Greeks) to light the menorah, only one sealed vial of oil was found. Although it was only enough oil to burn one day, it miraculously burned for 8 days.

That's a verse from Adam Sandler's followup version of the Chanukah song. I believe the line goes "And Veronica Beal from Baywatch is Jewish and yes, her boobs are real."

Well, maybe it doesn't get much airplay where you are but here in Boston, they play it to death.

I think I've heard the new version before. Isn't that the one in which he says "Lenny Kravitz is half-Jewish, Courtney Love is half, too, put them both together, what a funky bad -ss Jew"? Or is there yet a newer version?

Yep, you got it. You must not remember that other line I was talking about but that's in there too, not to mention "that guy who does the voice for Scooby-Doo." Personally, I like the first version better.

That's Version 2 of the Chanukah Song. Jennifer Beal from Flashdance was mentioned and then it was Yasmine Bleeth from Baywatch, boobs, etc.

Dennis Prager's show is syndicated nationally now, and he is on programs like Politically Incorrect and sometimes on Fox, too, I think. Sometimes his essays are in the WSJ and the LA Times, but I agree with you, there needs to be more of Dennis out there.

From Ari's WH briefing yesterday:

Later this afternoon, in one of the ceremonial joys that comes with the job, the President will take part in a photo opportunity with the University of Minnesota 2001 NCAA Championship Men's Wrestling Team.

Q That's one of the great joys of this job? (Laughter.)

MR. FLEISCHER: Yes.

Q One of the others is meeting with the winners of the World Series, I understand. (Laughter.)

MR. FLEISCHER: Speaking of wrestling, questions come later, Helen.

This evening, the President will take part in the lighting of the Menorah here at the White House, which will be the first time -- we are advised -- in presidential history that a President will have a lighting of a Menorah as an event in the Residence of the White House. And then will have a Hanukkah reception later today.

HA HA! It's always funny when Ari makes a little joke at Helen's expense.

Chai CCC! That's a Chanukah "Hi!" : )

(And, look at that...your post is #18, and 18=Life=Chai (the 2 letters in Hebrew - CCCChhhet and Yood.)
Hmmm...is there a Klezmer version of the "Twilight Zone" theme? : )

Thanks for the ping CCC!

Third night bump! I'm frying latkes RIGHT NOW! The secret is to fry them a long time- 5 to 10 minutes on each side so they are dark and crispy on the outside and soft and white on the inside.
