In the interest of good order, our next prime minister should be Shaul Mofaz.
And please let me explain: For many years now, there has been a holy tradition in the State of Israel, whereby every new prime minister is worse than the previous prime minister.
Shimon Peres was worse than Yitzhak Rabin, Benjamin Netanyahu was worse than Peres, Ehud Barak was worse than Bibi, Ariel Sharon was worse than Barak, and Ehud Olmert is worse than Sharon.
Ehud Barak and Benjamin Netanyahu already served as crappy prime minister. For that reason, electing them would constitute an unfortunate deviation from the pleasant downhill deterioration, replacing it by a silly process of running around in circles.
Such changes are not good for the people of Israel whose nerves are quite frayed as it is.
Livni still a mysteryThe third premiership candidate, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, is still a mystery. Her character and prominent traits are still somewhat veiled, and we cannot count on her to be worse than Ehud Olmert. After all, that is no easy task.
Shaul Mofaz, on the other hand, is a sure bet. There is no doubt whatsoever that he will be worse than Olmert, and in fact worse than anyone else who came before him. And therefore, out of all the premiership candidates, he is the only one who can guarantee the continued tradition of sinking deeper.
And to be honest, there may even be a ray of hope should Mofaz be elected as prime minister. After all, it may indeed be possible that Mofaz’s arrival at the Prime Minister’s Office will finally mark Israel reaching the bottom of the barrel. And from this kind of nadir, as everyone knows, we can only move up.
So please, only vote for Mofaz.
