    Barry Goldwater

    Jew Score:



    January 2, 1909 – May 29, 1998

    "I have always thought that if a Jew ever became President, he would turn out to be an Episcopalian." — Harry Golden

    The man Golden was talking about? None other than Barry Goldwater, whose reactionary candidacy was demolished by Lyndon Johnson in the 1964 presidential election. As it turns out, Goldwater's original family name was Goldwasser, and he was, in fact, half Jewish by birth, and even self-identified as a Jew.

    Only half-Jewish, but really Episcopalian, an ultra Conservative, and a UFO nut to boot? No, that will not do. Our quest of finding a prominent Jewish politician we could be proud of begins... Stay tuned.

    Verdict: Borderline Jew.
