• A onetime Jewish Obama donor who refuses to allow his name to be used “(let’s call him John)” tells a conservative blogger that he is abandoning the president and it’s not because of Israel. Clearly Obama needs to improve his standing with the Jewish community. [Right Turn]

• Kinky Friedman backs Gov. Rick Perry. Clearly Obama needs to improve his standing with the Jewish community. [Ben Smith]

• Joe Klein questions Glenn Beck’s recent comments about the Jews. [Time Swampland]

• A Mexican-Jewish cookbook? Sign me up! [Book Bench]

• Mardy Fish isn’t Jewish. I weep. [Kaplan’s Korner]

Stay safe, everybody.

Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.

Bill Pearlman says:

Joe Klein is a slight improvement over Phil ( Hitler should have finished the Job ) Weiss. Or Richard ( I would have made a great kapo ) Silverstein. But only marginally.

Kinky Friedman’s article is the Daily Beast (which is linked in Ben Smith’s piece) is quite funny and worth reading – Enjoy.
