Now that George Allen has ’fessed up to the truth of his origins, shedding the aspersion and joining the Dispersion, the voting public is entitled to a full accounting of the affair. Here are 10 questions that we believe the senator needs to answer:

1) Corned beef with Russian dressing: Kosher or kosher-style?

2) Christmas dinner: Ham, turkey or Chinese?

3) Madonna and Kabbalah: What’s not to like?

4) Feith, Wolfowitz, Libby: Cabal, patriots or killer infield?

5) Hank Aaron or Hank Greenberg?

6) Circumcision: Mazel tov or ouch?

7) Menachem Schneerson: Will he make a comeback?

8) Caspar Weinberger, Harold Brown, James Schlesinger: Who was the first Jewish secretary of defense?

9) What kind of name is Caspar, anyway?

10) Ari Fleischer. Would it have killed him to marry a nice Jewish girl? Maybe one his own age?
