I can't keep up


Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has said he is ready to begin talks with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas to advance peace efforts, and Abbas responded that he is ready for an unconditional meeting.

I was going to joke “They should invite UK Prime Minister Tony Blair to complete the circle of the walking politically dead” but while I was digging up a cite I discovered that this happened while Blair was visiting Abbas. Ouch, that’s a nasty gobsmacking by reality. I need to crank up the satire to 11 apparently. Now, there are some who take this seriously but won’t this make Clinton’s signing of the Kyoto Protocol look effective in comparison?
