Yesterday on CNN’s State of the Union, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wasn’t buying what Candy Crowley was trying to sell:

“There are legitimate, peaceful purposes for enriching this uranium,” said host Candy Crowley, speaking to why Iran’s activities are allowed under international agreements.

“You think so? You think so, Candy?” Netanyahu said. “That’s like Timothy McVeigh walking into a shop in Oklahoma City and saying, ‘I’d like to tend my garden. I’d like to buy some fertilizer.’ ‘How much do you want?’ ‘Oh, I don’t know, 20,000 pounds.’ Come on, we know that they’re working toward a weapon.”

On Meet the Press, Netanyahu told host David Gregory those who believe a nuclear Iran would help stabalize the Middle East “set a new standard for human stupidity.” Bibi really made the rounds yesterday.

Here’s the CNN clip:
