Talk about Sudden Death Overtime!
Usually the end of football season is a sad and lonely time for me - left with bleak winter weekends full of basketball games - relentless bouncing and screeching of sneakers on the hard court - I just stop watching TV Sports and read. BUT NOT THIS YEAR. I've got myself a civil war to watch for the next 3 or 4 months and I can't wait to see who wins - hopefully both sides can loose. Of course, if it were anywhere else in the world - Colombia or The Ivory Coast - we would not be treated to wall to wall coverage, but this is Palestine and that means 24/7.
You got to love this from the AP:
"...a dizzying power shift in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, overturning certitudes and highlighting the failure by Palestinian leaders, Israel and the international community to ease growing desperation in the Palestinian territories."
How in the hell did the "international community" fail? By not making sure that Fatah stole the election, the same way they have for every Palestinian "election" in the past. And what's this crap about the "growing desperation in the Palestinian territories?" Growing from what? From when? Aren't these Palestinians ALWAYS desperate?
- I'm ringing the Clown Bell loud and clear for Hamas - they finally got power and now they're going to get an ass kicking that will dwarf anything that's ever happened to them for the past 50 years.
- I'm ringing for Fatah - you're off the dole boys, better move to France ASAP and look for a job.
- I'm ringing for Arafat's ghost - thanks for nothing you vile blackguard.
