Video: Netanyahu campaign ad for the ‘Bibi-sitter’

Video: Netanyahu campaign ad for the ‘Bibi-sitter’

[Ed. – Patience; it may take a few extra seconds for the video to come up.]

A reminder that political ads are often pretty silly, wherever they run.

This is a side of Netanyahu Americans don’t see very often; usually we see him buttoned up in a suit and tie for TV interviews or speeches in American venues.

Most readers will recognize “Tzipi” as Tzipi Livni, formerly of Kadima and now the leader of Hatnuah, a left-wing party that together with the Labor Party forms a coalition calling itself Zionist Camp.  (When it comes to parliamentary fragmentation, you can never make the stuff up.  But it does write itself.)  “Buji,” the other politician referenced in the video, is the nickname of Isaac Herzog, Labor Party chairman and leader of the opposition to Netanyahu’s governing Likud coalition.
