After Sharon

Dry Bones cartoon - After SharonSome pundits are saying that the Israeli public wants a middle of the road party like Kadima. I disagree. I think that the support for Kadima is simply the public's support for Ariel Sharon.

So I did this cartoon.

There actually was a "retired peoples' party" back in the bad old days when Israeli politics were dominated by small splinter parties.

At the time of this writing (Friday morning, Israel time) the Israeli public is still praying for Ariel's life. TV is non-stop interviews with brain surgeons, political experts, friends of the PM, etc.
