One need only imagine how Jerusalem looked to George Bush. After all,
And I’m not talking about the change in the lighting schedule for the walls, the suddenly clean streets, and the lack of traffic (for certain people at least) in this crowded city.
I’m talking about how any signs of dissent and opposition was suppressed. I’m talking about how people were arrested, so that George Bush wouldn’t see them holding up a protest sign. I’m talking about how not a single negative political advertisement could be seen anywhere in Jerusalem (where George might see it).
Of course, there were a few Ogres that tried to ruin the party. Ogres like Itamar ben-Gvir and Susie Dym who had the nerve to hold up posters and hand out information booklets questioning the policies being pushed forward.
And Gingerbread men like Eli Yishai who dared to talk to George Bush about releasing Jonathan Pollard, particularly after Ehud Olmert specifically warned Yishai to keep his mouth shut on the subject.
And someone did manage to get a few Jonathan Pollard advertisements running, but nothing particularly serious.
In short, Ehud Olmert managed to turn Jerusalem into a perfectly totalitarian Duloc.
