Quick comment on Israeli elections.

It is very interesting to note the surprising victory of the Pensioners party, a single issue party that was formed less than 45 days before the elections.

The party has only one declared position, that of giving every Israeli citizen a pension. It has declared no position on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and its leader is an enigmatic ex-spy who was protege of Sharon.

Appearantly, the party only came to the attention of the public two weeks ago when it ran ads encouraging people to vote for them as the equivelent of putting in a white slip.

So much for advanced democracies.
