Roseanne cares about being Jewish. There’s no doubt about that. On her blog the comic legend reflects frequently on Judaism, Jewish identity and Israel. Sometimes the posts are short. Sometimes they’re long. Consistently they’re more than a little bit wacky.

Here’s two of her latest posts, in full:

MY AUNT SAID “WINEGAR” FIXES EVERYTHING…

Nice! Also, Roseanne will be a “special guest” at a comedy fundraiser for Israel’s Arava Institute for Environmental Studies headlined by fellow comedian Sarah Silverman.

ROSEANNE BRINGS SHAME ON ALL JEWS! I have so much contempt for that woman that I call on all Jews to boycott her. Roseanne has made comments about Israel and Judaism that sound like they came straight out of the mouth of David Duke. She is actually more offensive than Mr. Duke. I can't believe anyone would ever invite her to a fundraiser about Israel. What is wrong with the Jewish people that we treat self-hating anti-semitic Jews as being "normal" Jews. Lets stop being so wimpy and defend our homeland and people!
