Olmert to go

At long last, not a moment too soon, and probably way too late, horrible Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is stepping down:

Israel’s Prime Minister Ehud Olmert announced on Wednesday he would step down in September after a party leadership vote, announcing the end of a premiership dogged by graft investigations.

“After the election of my successor I will step down to allow a government to be formed rapidly,” he said, after declaring he would not run in the centrist Kadima party election due in mid-September.

I’d say Hurrah!, but I’ll hold my enthusiasm until I see who replaces him.

    “I’d say Hurrah!, but I’ll hold my enthusiasm until I see who replaces him.”

    Good decision.

    There’s no Hurrah. He did the damage, now he gets to leave in peace while Israelis are killed, tortured, ransomed off, and kidnapped due to his actions. There’s no “Hurrah”, period.

    I’d like to see the sucker go to jail, personally. And have his property distributed to the poor.

    But that’s just me, and only when I’m forgetting my Christian values.

    Seriously, what worse can you say about a national leader than that his indecisiveness (and bad decisions when he makes them) has left his nation less safe, and the future looks worse unless someone takes really tough (and dangerous) action?
