What is it with Obama and the Jews? Ever since he chose Rahm Emanuel , the child of an Israeli, as his chief of staff, conspiracy theories have raged about Obama's connection to the Jews. Jeffrey Goldberg writes about the number of conspiracy nuts who insist that Tim Geithner, and not just "jew Summers" and "jew Bernanke" is a Jew. (He is not.) Even Obama's own pastor, Jeremiah Wright, blamed "them Jews " for not letting "him talk to me." Surely James von Brunn waited 88 years to act on his inane, murderous thoughts because until now, the connection never seemed so real.
