Senator Orrin Hatch, Mormon Hanukkah Songwriter, Gets a Payback from the Tonight Show's Only Jew

On Monday night, the Tonight Show wanted to thank Utah Senator Orrin Hatch for writing a Hanukkah song, so bandleader Max Weinberg, as a member of the Jewish Community, presented a holiday song that he wrote just for Mormons, to the tune of "I Have a Little Dreidel."

"Now this is a song for Mormons to sing at Christmas time -- I only know about Mormons from the stuff that I read online..." and so it goes, bringing in the Osmonds, the movies Children of the Corn and Witness, Mitt Romney, and Miss PacMan and...well, you really should watch it.  Enjoy!
(A tip of the kippah to Esther Kustanowitz for first calling this to our attention in her Beliefnet blog.)
