If it Quacks Like a Duck…

Bibi was really just asking for it, wasn’t he?

In the esteemed prime minister of Israel’s speech in front of AIPAC, he decided on an unfortunate (not to mention tired) analogy for explaining his surety about Iran’s nuclear intentions. A duck. A nuclear duck. You’ll see what I mean when you watch the video below.

Was he trying to be funny? I hope not. If there were ever a moment for gravitas, it’s probably when you’re stating your reasons for going to war. But, alas, for at least one genius who was listening, it just brought to mind Daffy Duck.
