Europe is so much more sophisticated than the US.... yeah, right!

It might make a decent Bond villian as long s it doesn’t sing, it doesn’t sleep with Bond and it gets graphically blown to bits.

Europe's current "religion", namely left-wing self-hatred -- pretty much mandated that this freak win.

(He/it also had to sport a beard to out-freak a previous transvestite winner.)

So that’s what Gloin’s wife looked like!

According to Tolkein, she was a renowned beauty.

Thanks, I forgot about the freakish decline of Europe from its center for a while. But I’ll never understand how she was able to pay attention to the beams under her, or just about anything else, with those to always look at.

All I know is that 30 YEARS ago, Israel was asked NOT to submit an entry to the Eurovision Song Festival, because they always won, with songs like “Hallelujah, La Olam) (Praise G-d in Everything). After winning three years in a row, they were told to “give someone else a chance”.

At least that was the story the Israelis told me back in 1984.

To date there have been three Israeli victories in the contest. Izhar Cohen and Alphabeta won in Paris in 1978 with the uptempo A-Ba-Ni-Bi.

On home ground in Jerusalem the following year, Israel won again, this time with the anthemic Hallelujah performed by Gali Atari & Milk and Honey. For reasons that still escaped me, Israel did not defend the title in 1980.

The third victory came almost 20 years later in Birmingham, UK in 1998. Singer Dana International took top honors with the song Diva, setting off widespread celebrations in Israel.

Ah..thanks for the correction and the update. I was just speaking from a memory...it’s been 30 years! :-)

In any case...the current ‘winner’ shows how far the contest has descended.

Once again, I find myself agreeing with the Russians:

But her victory caused outrage with some with one hardline Russian politician, Vladimir Zhirinovsky, even told national TV stations that her win meant ‘the end of Europe’. He added: ‘They don’t have men and women any more. They have “it”.

‘Fifty years ago the Soviet army occupied Austria. We made a mistake in freeing Austria. We should have stayed.’

And hundreds of Russian men posted pictures on Twitter of themselves shaving off their beards in protest.

Dana International, who won for Israel in 1998, is a transsexual and was widely opposed by Israeli conservatives.
