What do Ehud Olmert and Cheech and Chong have in common?
And the campaign people in Kadima want to keep it that way.
Today the political parties receive the letters that will be printed on the slips of paper we use to vote in national elections. (For those of you who are not aware, our country is still in the third world when it comes to elections. We place slips of paper with an abbreviation of the party we want to vote for in a little envelope and this is then placed in a locked box.)
It turns out that Kadima will receive the letters chaf - nun, which means "yes" in Hebrew.
So far so good.
The problem is that the Green Leaf party, the one that wants to legalize marijuana, wants the letters kuf-nun, which in Hebrew sounds exactly the same as chaf-nun. (The English equivalent of the sounds of hard c, and k.)
I guess they are afraid that people will get mixed up, and will vote for Green Leaf instead of Kadima.
I can just imagine it - the haze over Tel-Aviv will be something to see if they get 43 seats in the Knesset...
