In a show of Jewish support, Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney addressed the Statehouse at the annual Menorah-lighting ceremony tonight in Boston. Romney, who left before the actual lighting of the Menorah, shared his random thoughts on Jews. Below are some of these quality quotes. And whatever you do, refrain from the Massachusetts jabs.

The Republican chief executive, back in Massachusetts for only the second time since Nov. 28, recalled “a wonderful Jewish doctor” who is his next-door neighbor and said, “His name is not a typically Jewish name, and listen, listen carefully: ‘Michael’ is his first name; ‘Freeman’ is his last. ‘Free-man.’"

Saving himself from any more personal anecdote blunders, Romney went on to say:

I’ve been amazed at how our community is blessed by people of great intellect who are Jewish, by people of great compassion who are Jewish, by people in the fields of medicine, science, exploration and our military.
