Re: The art of a political putdownPosted By RICHARD NAGLE on 12/28/2007 at 10:54 AMA London Times journalist told British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli that a parliamentary opponent was denigrating the PM because Disraeli was a Jew. Disraeli commented, "Yes, I am a Jew. And you may tell that gentleman that while his vaunted British ancestors were painting themselves blue and worshipping oak trees, mine were in the temple of Solomon debating the nature of the cosmos."
