    Think of the money Olmert saved on demolition expenses for his FUN plan to turn the North into an amusement park. Shrewdly, he allowed Hezbullah to do the dirty work. Don't worry, the North will soon be more fun than you can imagine! And what a rocket ride that whole trip was. That must have been fun! Wasn't Ehud right there after the missiles had stopped to cheer you up and pat you on the head? Israel wanted a fun leader, and a funny guy Ehud is. He can flap his ears and fly ... like Dumbo. But in a democracy, does the buck stop with the leader or with the people who allowed him to rise to power? Of course, we in America have done no better. We elected our own Dumbo -- twice! He doesn't have the ears, but he has puppy-dog eyes, and he can speak! Bush is a man who is all vision and no hearing. Ehud, on the other hand, must hear well with those ears; but sees the road ahead very poorly with those small shadowy eyes. We have ourselves to thank for these examples of democracy's finest.
