A buddy of mine in NYC used to refer to those Jews who persisted in voting for Dinkins after the Crown Heights pogrom as the "Cattlecar vote". They were willing to support a candidate who, while not a bigot himself, surrounded himself with openly anti-semitic supporters and staff, out of some misplaced ideological belief in the divinity of Democrats. I don't believe in identity politics, and I wouldn't vote for a Jewish candidate whose policies were anathema to me, but voting for people who openly express their hatred for us has always struck me as insane.
Shirley, he wasn't serious? :D
That's one thing that has always been a mystery to me, how very intelligent people can blindly vote for people who hate them. If someone hates me, I won't give them the time of day.
