Likud drops to 5th place

Wow! Likud, which had controlled Knesset for most of the past ten years, is now a small minority party. Coming in first with what appears to be only 28 seats is Kadima, followed by Labor with 20, then Shas with 13, Yisroel Beitenu with 12 and, finally, Likud with a mere 11 seats. Shortly behind is NU/NRP with 9 and the Old Farts Party with 8.

It's remarkable to see how devastated once mighty Likud has become. The end of that party may be near, as the fall is ideological. There is no clear difference between Likud, Labor and Kadima, so you knew they were likely to take a fall. We all expected them to plummet to around 15 seats, in fact, but, to crumble all the way down to 11?

Actually, they are getting exactly what they deserve, quite frankly. After trying to ban Moshe Feiglin's Jewish Leadership faction, well, it is the punishment Bibi had coming to him.

Likud should never have gone along with the concessionist platform, so I say screw them I'm glad they collapsed; being a sellout phoney never should be rewarded. The Jews of Judea who are about to be ethnically cleansed will certainly not shed a tear for your plight.

waht a mess these elections have turned out to be.

The only silver lining is there is no way Olmert will be able to put a stable coalition together.

let's have a snob beer together! i was also sick to see olmert win - and do appreciate all the lessons learned here in the last few months. psalm 122:6 has never been more needed. you are a great teacher, you and brooklyn bob - ha!

i'm sure everyone will be by to give condolences and have a beer or shot with you. i'm sending baby z a surprise in the morning - look for it. she should be happy and well-adjusted "z" even if you're not!

no peace from this can be trusted.

Baby Z loves surprises, nanc!

I downed a 6-pack of beer to help soften the blow of the election crap. Looks real bad for the yidden in Judea.

i'm having a guatemalan lager nancpop brought home - not so sure of it - six or two more ought to tell the story - mazeltov or something like that! i think nancpop wants nancmom to be a beer snob...

when are you going to post a pic of baby "z"? i'll put it on my screensaver with my grandson, king josiah - he's three and a half and a beauty of a child. and if you have another girl "z" i have a jeremiah to pose her with!

Photo is a no-no. However, I will post as many Lafave pics as you wish to see.

nanc said...

you have had one too many! lafave is a fine example of beauty being only skin deep.

i'm ashamed to say that i am one of the only people i know who has never carried photos of my children - if people want to see the photos, they must come for supper or the weekend and pour through the two or three hundred albums we have started or are in the making!

okay, time to crack open another one...

MZ: It is a sorry state of affairs when the nationalist Jews do not turn out to support their parties - what kept them from voting? May be the Jewish nation has decided collectively that it is time to die. Now Kadima and it's bad/worse coalition partners will speed up the destruction of Israel. This is a very sad event for the whole world.
