Just when you thought Israeli campaign videos couldn’t get any more lame (* cough * Bibi) you get Michael Oren trying to get in on the “House of Cards” craze.

Michael Oren, the former Israeli ambassador to the United States, will be a contributor to CNN.
“Michael will be joining CNN as a Middle East contributor,” a spokeswoman for Oren told JTA in a statement.
Michael Oren, Israel’s ambassador to the United States, was so pleased with a Rosh Hashanah greeting he received Monday from President Barack Obama that he photographed it and put it on Twitter. “I’m deeply appreciative of President @BarackObama’s personal letter for Rosh Hashanah,” the ambassador tweeted.
The letter, typewritten on official White House stationery, was delivered to Oren’s home in Washington. In it, Obama makes specific reference to Oren’s wife Sally and children Yoav, Lia and Noam, wishing them and all others who will gather with the family a good and sweet New Year.
