Senator Hatch is quite pleased with the reception to his Hanukkah song, as he should be. He told me yesterday that he's thinking of writing another Jewish song, maybe about Purim this time. I pointed out that there are a boatload of songless Jewish holidays, and suggested that he recruit his fellow senators to pitch in. And speaking of his colleagues, he told me they all love the song, especially the Jewish ones. Frank Lautenberg loved the song, he said; Russ Feingold loved the song. Joe Lieberman, however, found it "troubling and dissapointing." No, just kidding! Lieberman loved the song as well.
