Olmert The Idiot Strikes Again...

Criminal is one thing and stupid is another... but criminal and stupid is in a class by itself.

Israeli Prime minister and indicted felon Ehud Olmert has just under a month before he's tossed out of office, and considering the sort of things he's pulled as prime minister, you'd think he'd have the common sense G-d gave a goat and keep his mouth shut until then.

Not Olmert!

Yesterday he was absolutely drunk with hubris over what far better men have accomplished in Gaza on Israel's behalf and chose to gratuitously insult both US Secretary of State Condi Rice and President Bush at the same time:

Israel had argued that the Security Council measure calling for a halt to the Gaza fighting - which passed Thursday in a 14-0 vote with the U.S. abstaining -
was unworkable because it did not guarantee Israel's security.

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said he called President George W. Bush to seek an
abstention from the U.S., a key Israeli ally at the United Nations.

"I said: 'Get me President Bush on the phone,'" Olmert said in a speech in the
southern Israeli city of Ashkelon. "They said he was in the middle of giving a
speech in Philadelphia. I said I didn't care: 'I need to talk to him now.' He
got off the podium and spoke to me."

Olmert said he argued that the United States should not vote in favor, and the president then called Rice and told her not to do so.

"She was left pretty embarrassed," Olmert said.

I might also add that this came right after the US had just offloaded a major ammunitions and parts shipment for Israel's use against Hamas, over 300 tons worth.

Needless to say, the White House totally repudiated this, and for once I believe them. State Department spokesmouth Sean McCormack said Olmert's little tale of what happened "just 100 percent, totally, completely not true," while White House deputy press secretary Tony Fratto said "there are inaccuracies."

Even if it was true, it's the sort of detail anyone with an ounce of discretion keeps quiet about. Fortunately, both Condi Rice and George W. Bush will be gone in a week's time, and Olmert after the February 10th elections, so the damage this moron can do is limited.

I would also hope that some of the grownups in Israel took it upon themselves to apologize to the right people for Olmert's stupidity.

When it comes to Ehud Olmert, all I can say is that it's a pity he had children, so that his DNA still lives on in the gene pool.

On the other hand, two of his three kids prefer the company of their own sex, so it does mitigate things a bit. Just the same, he should be castrated and then shot into outer space once he leaves office, just to make sure he doesn't spawn again.

His kind we can do without.
