Yishai, Lieberman and above all, Bibi -- they have inhabit only fantasy worlds of their own absurd creation. So even of Livni has her limitations, at least in her case we are talking of someone of this planet, engaging and responding to reality as it ACTUALLY EXISTS. It is a pretty low bar, indeed any reasonably intelligent, non-schzphrenic Israeli man on the street meets the criteria. Lieberman, Bibi, Yishai -- they don't. They (i.e., Yvette Lieberman) live a world where strength in diplomacy comes from deputies who seat rivals in little chairs and from PR missions to obscure, powerless microcountries (while actual real world powers only get angrier and angrier every day). They (i.e., Bibi) live in a world where the strong leader gets the strong headlines the next day, that is all that counts, and where the degree of one's leadership engagement is to be measured by just how informally the leader can dress down for crisis time (wow, no jacket Bibi, a polo shirt! such sacrifice for county!). And of course they (i.e., Eli Yishai) live in a world where, as Rav Ovadia Yosef recently explicated, the cause of catastrophic fires, rather than negligence, is obviously insufficient levels of Shabbat observance -- such that prevention requires not increased viligence not investment in greater protective resources, but rather, simply Torah, more observance, more prayer. So, faced with such levels of frightening self-delusion, Rachel thinks we are supposed instead to be frightened that the alternative will be a reality-inhabiting, obviously competent (if not entirely inspiring individual) like Tzipi Lizni? That, in contrast to this sad pit of incompetent stupidity, it is TZIPI who is supposed to be frightening?? Hahaaaa. OH PLEASE.
