Ha'aretz reviews a book by Uri Dan, titled "Ariel Sharon: An Intimate Portrait". Sharon is personally very interesting to me, for many reasons. But out of the review came a little tidbit that struck me as completely inappropriate, in fact downright gross:
Speaking of George Bush, with whom Sharon developed a very close relationship, Uri Dan recalls that Sharon's delicacy made him reluctant to repeat what the president had told him when they discussed Osama bin Laden. Finally he relented. And here is what the leader of the Western world, valiant warrior in the battle of cultures, promised to do to bin Laden if he caught him: "I will screw him in the ass!"

I suppose this is all of a piece with his groping of the German Prime Minister, addressing the British Prime Minister with a "Yo, Blair," through a mouthful of half-chewed bread, his completely inappropriate attempted dragging around of the Chinese Premier, and his rubbing the heads of just about any bald man within a hundred feet. Why do they let this idiot take trips abroad, anyway? He hasn't the first clue about how to behave in public. And what is with his barely disguised homoerotic behaviours? Be as gay as you want, buddy, just don't make me privy to your sadistic sodomy fantasies. Yeesh.
