Attention and votes

This paragraph in an article in yesterday’s Times abut the elections in Israel amused me:

“In a bizarre combination that was intended to attract attention and votes — and that some have found distasteful — Holocaust survivors joined forces with alumni of the Green Leaf Party, who advocate legalizing cannabis. The cannabis advocates endorse the survivors’ rights to more benefits. The survivors endorse the younger generation’s right to get high.”
