Moments after the polls closed: the pollsters did it yet again. They made their calculations and then made the results known. To be honest, all the votes have still not come in but a general direction is there. And…well, the pollsters only made a tiny error.
Most said that Kachol Lavan would get 37 seats and Likud, led by Benjamin Netanyahu, would get 36 (or 33). One little error. As of this morning, based not on “exit polls” but on a majority of the real votes counted, the results were quite different. Ironically, it was Benjamin Netanyahu with 37 and Kachol Lavan with 36.
The Embarrassment of the Night Award goes to Benny Gantz for arrogantly crowning himself as Prime Minister and thanking Benjamin Netanyahu for his past service to the nation. Oops.
So a short while ago, I went to check the results and how others are reacting. Many of my friends, leaning to the right or solidly on the right as I am, were ecstatic. And then I noticed one man complaining that he just doesn’t understand. He asked a question and I offered a response.
Israel is literally the definition of insanity. Choosing the same idiots who only represent themselves over and over expecting different results.
So let me explain, as someone who didn’t vote for Bibi but is totally okay with the results of the election…even satisfied with them and more.
I don’t think Benjamin Netanyahu is an idiot. I don’t think Benny Gantz is an idiot, nor Gabi Ashkenazi…I do think Yair Lapid is an idiot, but never mind – I didn’t write that during the whole election, so let’s pretend I didn’t write it now.
Israel has a thriving economy. We have a strong military. The people are happy and healthy – according to international ratings that are not influenced by local politics.
We are recognized as among the most innovative countries in the world. Adventurous in youth, on the battlefield, in innovation and more.
