Hot Jew-on-Jew action

Somehow I'd failed to notice the fact that Norm Coleman and Al Franken, both running for Minnesota's Senate seat, are both Jewish. How many Senate elections have featured a Jew running against a Jew? And why Minnesota?

Wait, Franken is Jewish? I thought not. Well, I thought so. But then somebody told me I was wrong. I want answers.

According to this article, Franken was raised as a reform Jew. Very reform. So reform that he wasn't even bar mitzvahed. So I guess it all depends on your definition of Jewish.

Does not having had a bar mitzvah call into question your jewishness or your manhood?

There's a difference?
