Curt Schilling Asked CNN's Jake Tapper Why Jews Vote For Democrats

Curt Schilling's potential political career is off to a great start.  The former MLBer was a guest on CNN to discuss the fact that he's considering a 2018 Senate run.

During his interview Curt asks interviewer Jake Tapper, why Jews vote for Democrats, via Death and Taxes:

“As a person who’s practicing the Jewish faith,” (oh, Christ) “and has since you were young, I don’t understand, and maybe this is the amateur non-politician in me, I don’t understand how people of Jewish faith can back the Democratic party which over the last 50 years has been so clearly anti-Israel. So clearly anti-Jewish Israel, that, I just don’t know what else would need to be done, said, or happen for people to understand that they don’t, that they’re not…we…the Democratic party is allied with Israel only because we have agreements in place that make them have to be.”

Jake had to inform Curt that he didn't speak for all Jews.  And that like every group of people, Jewish people don't just vote for one party.  Both points blew Curt's mind.

Off to a great start Curt.
