The Jewish Journal reports on the number of candidates who are Jewish running for office saying that "Jews are rapidly becoming the People of the Ballot."
I felt that deserved a song.
People of the Ballot
(with apologies to Adam Sandler)
by Mayor Sam
Elections are the alternate to fights,
Instead of years of uprising, we have one crazy night.
So when you feel like the only one on the ballot without a Latin name,
here's a list of people who are Jewish, that jumped in to the game:
David Berger kisses the mezuzah,
So do Jack Weiss, Paul Koretz, and the CD5's Adeena
Guess who eats together at our favorite deli Cantor's,
Bornstein from CD3, and Mrs Robin Ritter (Simon).
Eric Garcetti's half Jewish; Harry Potter's half too,
Put them together--what a magical shady Jew!
You don't need confession or to post on Mayor Sam's blog
Cause you can atone your sins with Noel Weiss and Zuma Dogg--both Jewish!
Put on your yarmulke, and have some Manischewitz,
Cause you can vote for the former WeHo Mayor Mr. Paul Koretz.
Nick the Greek -- not a Jew!
And guess who else...the Valley's Wendy Greuel (but her husband is)
We got Ron Galperin and his opponent Robert Schwartz,
Gary Shlossberg's also Jewish--and on the right course!
Some people think that Dennis Zine is,
Well, he's not, but guess who is: The Mayor of Beverly Hills.
So many Jews are in the gov biz--
Walter Moore isn't but I heard his consultant is!
Make your connections, its time for elections
I hope no one shady wins, in these lovely, lovely elections.
So get a new direction, and toke up with Craig Rubin,
Just make your selection,
have a happy, happy, happy, happy election.
