A Comical Interlude

Below are a couple of videos that will, hopefully, allow some people to see the more ridiculous side of our politics and politicians before its too late (and they end up with their pictures all over the internet).

One video I particularly wanted to put up, after Nasrallah's ludicrous speech yesterday, was of a Lebanese comedy skit in which a comedian impersonates Speaker of Parliament Nabih Berri and a conversation he is having with American Ambassador to Lebanon, Jeffrey Feltman. Here is a loose translation:

Berri: Who is assassinating the March 14th politicians?
Feltman: I can't tell you who exactly, but I can tell you its a neighborly country who's name starts with the letter "S"...
Berri:...SSSSssssssraeeeeeeeeeel???


Enjoy the vids:

  5. Nasrallah's speech instigated a discussion on referendums for the election of a president.

    Here is an analysis piece I wrote on that several months back (when Nasrallah's stooge, Aoun, mentioned it).
