Jewdar Saves the Gays

If Jewdar were a general, we’d be “Mackarthur.” If we were an admiral, it would be in “Mackhale’s Navy.’ And if we were a sultan of the Ottoman Empire, we’d be “Suleiman the Macknificent.”

In case you weren’t paying attention as to whom is the Mack, it’s Jewdar. And what, you may ask, has brought on this barrage of praise? Well, how about the fact that Jewdar ended “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”

Have your doubts? Well, consider that the policy has been in place–and opposed–since 1993. Jewdar finally gets around to attacking it, and, lo and behold, a week later, it’s repealed. So who’s the Mack? Yeah, you damn right.

What do you think?

    Jewdar, how many Heeb readers actually serve or served in the U.S. military? Five including you? Or is that five Jewish readers including you for all of Jewish media combined?

    Maybe you should use your newfound superpowers to change something that we actually have some skin in? Like say, this cutting taxes thing when we have a deficit that if left unchecked, will cause hyperinflation? Maybe repeal the tax cuts. Wouldn’t that be more useful?

    DK, I’m Military Affairs Editor; you know how territorial Heeb Editors are. If I start weighing in on politics, I’m bound to step on someone’s toes.

    Thanks, Jewdar ;)
    And DK, I think you’re missing a few letters in your name. I think the DADT issue is slightly more important than your namby pamby hanky waving over a deficit (the actual amount of deficit is irrelevant, it’s the relation to the percentage of GDP that counts, all Governments run at a deficit sometime or another).

    Puck, you would have to be living in some backwater country like Australia to not know that the US deficit is completely out of control.

    But I understand. Like many, if a penis or vagina is involved somehow, that makes it a more compelling issue.

    Well, you are in good company my friend.

  5. Heeb Gets No Credit for Miral’s Ad Campaign « Heeb Magazine

    […] Sure, when the gays said bupkis after virtually single-handedly overturned “Don’t Ask, Don&#8…we were miffed, but hey, they aren’t mishpoche (and we presume that at least they had some really good party to go to). But are we the only ones who noticed that almost immediately after we took umbrage at Miral’s ad campaign, the poster was changed to the one above, from the one below? […]
