Kipp received a video clip this afternoon from a friend (take a bow, Miss M) that we thought you should see.
The newly elected Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri is the subject of a popular montage on YouTube, due to his poorly delivered speech last week to the Lebanese Parliament. The clip features Hariri butchering the Arabic language, interspersed with scenes of a popular Egyptian theater production from the 1980s.
The PM’s Arabic was so poor that another politician offered to finish reading Hariri’s speech for him.
