Here's the latest sticker going around:
It reads in Hebrew: "Shalem, Chaver".
Which, of course, is a slight take-off on the famous Shalom, Chaver of Bill Clinton, in parting from Yitzhak Rabin.
But, whereas Clinton said "Shalom", Olmert is saying "Shalem", which translates as "Pay!".
It's tough being a Prime Minister (and demanding prime rates).
