From Jameel:

5:32 PM Speechless. Channel 10 just announced the results of a poll they conducted: If there would be elections today for Prime Minister, who would you vote for? Check out the following results:Amir Peretz 1%
Shimon Peres 2.6%
Ehud Olmert 3.4%
Benjamin Netanyahu 46.5%
Avigdor Leiberman 46.5%

One of the most remarkable parts of these results is that if there were elections today Peres would still lose to Olmert!

anonymous: not really remarkable at all. Peres is the quintessential loser.

I assume you've heard the famous Peres Paradox:

If Peres would enter the World's Greatest Loser competition, would he come in first or second?
