What do Netanyahu and Wile E. Coyote have in common? Bibi Pulls Out A Cartoon Bomb To Explain to UN The Iranian Nuclear Threat
I knew ACME was in the bomb business but this is ridiculous!
What do Netanyahu and Wile E. Coyote have in common?
Other than looks you mean? Well both have their devilish plots, deceptions and grand schemes that typically backfire. They also have the wonderful ACME bomb sketches and ofcourse their continuous harrassement of their foes, the Road Runner in one case and the Palestinians/Iranians on the other- Beep Beep anyone.
In what is going to be remembered as one of the goofiest performances of all times at the U.N. Netanhyahu’s attempts to graphically scare the world about the dangers of the Iranian bomb backfired as his cartoonish sketch became the subject of ridicule in various media circles and is sure to be featured on all late night talk show circuits imminently. Hey Bibi, how about outsourcing the graphics to India the next go around?

Not to worry though!
Former George W. Bush Press Secretary Ari Fleischer, on the other hand, called it “effective” and “gripping.”
