  1. Too bad Barack’s team can’t do it at a kosher restaurant, like Eli’s in DC.
    While I recognize that most Jews don’t keep kosher, it would be nice if Jewish outreach events didn’t violate Jewish law.

  2. I agree, amechad, but I don’t think Eli’s is even open on Saturday nights. Also, I imagine there will be a lot more drinking than eating going on, anyway.
    And for Barack supporters on the NW/NE/Maryland side of the DC region, I just read here that there will be an Obama rally/fundraiser in downtown S.S. tonight. Click for details and an awesome pic of the candidate.

  3. Hey Amechad,
    While it’s not a kosher restaurant (Eli’s simply isn’t big enough), there will be kosher wine available. Thanks!

  4. Barack Obama is a candidate we should all get behind. Lets put the fact that his spiritual adviser is antiba caucasian, anti-Israel, and a terrorist apologist. Barack is a slick speaker, and after eight years of Bush, we need someone who really knows how to b.s. the public. Also , let’s ignore the fact that Barack’s foreign policy team is NOT for Israel. We really don’t need Israel anymore, anyhow.
