You Voted For Bennett And Got Lapid (Updated)

י' לחודש השנים עשר תשע"ג

Remember how those of you who voted for Ariel Sharon, and ended up with Shimon Peres?

Remember how those of you who voted for Bibi Netanyahu, and ended up with Ehud Baraq?

Well, it looks like we are about to witness another [traditional Israeli] switcheroo in the process...
Bennett and Lapid create 31-seat bloc, agree to join the coalition or be left out together.

MK Naftali "Goofy" Bennett
Naftali Bennett and Yair Lapid have created a pact between their two parties, agreeing that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will have either both of their parties in his coalition or neither, political sources have told Arutz Sheva.

Together, the two have 31 seats. Netanyahu’s chances of putting together a coalition without either party are not considered good.
 MK Yair "Whiny" Lapid

Bennett and Lapid banded together due to a shared interest in preventing Netanyahu from creating a coalition that excluded one of them in favor of hareidi-religious or left-wing parties. (cont.)
Wait a minute.  Left-wing parties?  Then what does that make the Yesh Atid Party?  Center-Anti-Torah, as opposed to Left-wing-Anti-Torah?

How appropriate that this shiddukh was announced on the pagan holiday of Valentine''s Day!

To those of you who voted for Bennett, it looks like you're gonna get Lapid, as part of a package deal.

Happy now?


Baruch Marzel (Otzmah leYisrael) just posted this mock up of a poster which he says should have been posted before the elections.

"To our voters, Unfortunately, a mistake was made in the posters we put out before the elections.  Here is the correct poster:  Strong Together, Vote for Bennett."
