Yes, I kid you not. President of Israel. The guy is a pure megalomaniac. Dersh melech Yisrael, Chai, Chai v’kayam (“Long live Dersh King of Israel…”)
On a related subject, this is the first news that Dershowitz may be considering Bibi’s urgent offer to become Israel’s chief UN flack otherwise known as ambassador:
Last Saturday night, Dershowitz told Channel 1 (Israel Television ) that he was considering Netanyahu’s offer to become Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations. A week earlier, he spoke at Tel Aviv University, where he was awarded an honorary doctorate. After his talk, the actor Alex Ansky told him, “You must be our next president.” To which Dershowitz replied, “That’s a job I won’t turn down.”
A commenter below with a totally straight face wrote the following:
I can’t think of anyone who would make a better president of Israel. I think that he would lend the office all the dignity it deserves.
Her second sentence unintentionally conveys all the irony necessary when regarding the possibility of this political car crash.
