The land of the free and Master Netanyahu

Question: What do you call a country whose government  pleads with a foreign leader for help in order to pass a bill through the house of representatives of its people?

Answer: The land of the free and the home of the braves.

This is from the NYT:

” When the Obama administration wanted to be certain that Congress would not block $50 million in new aid to the Palestinian Authority last month, it turned to a singularly influential lobbyist: Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu. At the request of the American Embassy and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Mr. Netanyahu urged dozens of members of Congress visiting Israel last month not to object to the aid…”

Look how these “free” congress memebers are stampeding to touch his hands and get his blessings:      

Pope Netanyahu awards his blessings to US Congress members

And for good measures, you may want to watch the farcical scene at the   Congress of the United States of America. “His excellency” Master Netanyahu  (Boehner’s words) got 29 standing ovations. It is straight out of  satirical theater.

The land of the free and the home of the braves indeed!
