Americans and Israelis confused by leader who steps down after making terrible decision

Americans and Israelis (especially Israelis) are expressing total bewilderment at why British Prime Minister David Cameron stepped down in the wake of Brexit.
“Wait, so he made a really awful choice with far-reaching negative consequences and now he’s just stepping down to let someone else take over? What?” said Colorado Springs, CO resident Evan Austin, echoing the sentiments of citizens across the United States who were left struggling to understand why a democratically elected head of government would relinquish control simply because they had been shown to have made a spectacularly bad judgment call. “So he jeopardized the future of his country, and instead of spending the next several years remaining in power while trying to paper over his mistakes, he’s just gone? Where’s the part where he denies any wrongdoing or tries to blame somebody else? This is absolutely crazy.”
Yes, of course that was The Onion, and you can read the whole thing here

Cameron stepping down is one thing.

Consider Chamberlain, in the end, having the spine to ask Churchill into the Cabinet, AND to give him the Admiralty.

I'd be stunned to find any contemporary American politician capable of doing something like that.

The popular culture creates the politics. There are times when the Onion is far truer than anyone wants to admit, because to do so means looking ourselves in the mirror.
