First Truthiness. Now Jewish-y?
Michael Richards created a ruckus with the "n" word and he certainly didn't try to claim he was black as a defense. But apparently he went on an anti-Semitic tirade during a standup act in April. And last week his publicist said no one should read anything into that because Richards is Jewish. Sort of. But not really. In fact, it turns out his mother isn't Jewish, his father isn't Jewish and he hasn't converted to Judaism and no one has said he goes to Temple. But apparently he considers himself Jewish. Maybe we cut him slack last week because he apologized (ineptly) and had no history of similar remarks. But apparently he does. So maybe the truthiness is that he's Jewish-y. Oy, enough already. We know one thing: he's an ass.
