This Will Make Them Love Us

The new face of the America in Palestine is .... Richard Gere ?!?!? That's right, folks, it is the star of such cinematic masterpieces Runaway Bride and Shall We Dance, is in a new commercial airing in Palestine (I really am not lying, here's proof) where he gets to utter the phrase everyone would love to say:

"Hi, I'm Richard Gere and I'm speaking for the entire world"
Like hell he is. The only guy who seems to have any ounce of sanity left is Gaza soap factory worker Manar an-Najar who was quoted by Reuters as saying, "I don't even know who the candidates are other than Abu Mazen (Mahmoud Abbas), let alone this Gere." When he found out Gere was, in fact, an American, he said: "We don't need the Americans' intervention. We know who to elect. Not like them -- they elected a moron."
Well said, my friend. Well said. But honeslty, does The Onion even right shit as funny as this?
