As we remember the year just passed, we realize we’ve already forgotten a lot of it. Just like that guy in the debates who couldn’t remember the three departments he wanted to get rid of. (What was his name again?)

(And what was that department he forgot?)

(And what did that guy who spent all his casino money on the election call his Newt PAC before it became his Romney PAC?)

Let’s just jump right in. Below, we jumble the Jewish facts just a little more…

1. Sheldon Adelson gave $20 million to the super PAC backing Newt Gingrich. What was its name?

A) Winning Our Future

B) Losing Our Marbles

C) Impaling Our Pollsters

2. After finally pumping a reported $150 million into super PACS to back candidates, almost all of whom lost, Adelson told the press:

A) “I don’t cry when I lose.”

B) “I don’t scream when I stick my hand in the toaster.”

C) “You guys really thought I’m a Republican?”
