Our first president

Someone arrived at Pillage Idiot today through a Yahoo search for "george washington, jew?" -- question mark and all.

And since this visitor has asked an excellent question, I will provide an excellent answer: Yes. George Washington was Jewish. He was our first Jewish president. Abraham Lincoln was also Jewish, as were Teddy and F.D. Roosevelt. Thomas Jefferson was not, but we let him on Mount Rushmore, anyway.
